    I like my CR123 Princeton tec, but I am also very impressed with Zebralight headlamps. They have AA models, but the rechargeables are really eye-opening. Like turn night into day eye-opening.

    The photos I have seen are pretty good, and I would bet they would suffice for an Eastman's spread with one caveat:

    GoPros have a ton of distortion. You would need to correct for that in software.

    I wouldn't put too much into "break-in" I would clean after 5 shots for the first twenty (While you are sighting in, load developing, practicing, etc.) Then clean as needed.

    Either eyepiece would still work for me, but I suppose I would rather have the WA for the 65mm body.

    While it is useable under many conditions, the exit pupil often just gets too small for my...

    Struck out here also, friends.

    Montana, I grew up over there and spent a bunch of time in the Spanish Peaks. I will send you a PM, but you won't have any trouble finding a billy.

    Congrats!

    "Minimum energy to cleanly kill" is a bunch of hooey.

    Damaging vital tissue is what is needed for a quick kill. Having enough penetration and impact velocity to cause the bullet to expand is what...

    Most quality 150 grain bullets of reasonable BC out of a 7RM will do the job on an elk at 500 yards easily when placed correctly.

    Shooter skill and wind will be the limiting factors.

    I like 60x with a 80-85mm spotter, although as woodtick mentions, WA is nice to have also. I use my 85mm on 60x quite often, especially pre-sunrise in the high country when the air is stable.

    I have killed antelope and mulies with the 140 AB and the 140 TTSX. Both worked great. I am going to try to work up a load for the 168 Berger CH around 2550 fps MV, and that would be a sweet elk...

    He might be referring to the 125 partition's less-than-stellar BC, and BC is what really makes a fast 6.5 shine.
