    A rough score was 330. It took 2 shots on both my elk and my sons to keep them down.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    What'd you shoot them with?

    Shot with a 300 Win Mag right in the boilermaker ... went down and got right back up ... put another round of the 180 gr. Barnes which kept him down. I really like that all copper bullet.

    Excellent elk bullet from an excellent elk cartridge.

    I agree. I use Barnes X for my 338 ultra mag and I really like the results

    When I was sighting in my rifle , the range used tires as a backstop and it was interesting to see the dust fly up after shooting as the Barnes copper 180 graains went right through the tire!! I suspect they also went through the elk my son and I shot .Thanks for the responses on my post. Do want to go back to Wyoming for another hunt once the checkbook gets built up again
