    Whats your elk rifle

    I would really rather have an archery tag but I don't so I'll be loading up some 160 grain Nosler AcuuBonds in .284 and I'll be taking my faithful old tack driver... 7 mm rem mag... My nephew hunts elk with a 300 ultra mag and while it puts out more horsepower I really like the 7 mag. Whats your rifle/cal./bullet of choice for elk?

    I agree with you I'd rather have an archery tag, but I shoot a Remington 700, 7mm mag 168 Bergers.

    I like both bow and rifle, and hunt both season here in MT. I just built a 7mm mag myself, and start load development on the 160 AB and 168 LRX this week. Scope is a Swarovski Z3 BRH reticle.

    You can see it here:

    I still have my previous elk rifle and fully intend to put her in the field again. I lovingly referred to her as the "Elkinator." She's a Remington Sendero SF2 in 300 RUM and she has accounted for three bulls. She has worn a Leupy Mark 4, Swaro Z3, and soon either a Vortex Viper HS LR or SWFA SS.

    I enjoy calling bulls and hunting with a bow, and I know it isn't as "cool" to be a rifle hunter right now, but I still love it.

    I purchased a Tikka T3 in 300 wsm. I have a sub MOA load worked up with 165 Nosler Accubonds with 65 grains of H4350 and CCI mag primers. Was curious why you went with the 180s vs. something like the 165s. (Specifically speaking for elk). I am torn on working up a heavier load for elk but not sure if I need to. Any thoughts?

    Hey hvfd21walker, just wondered who built your 30-338. I'm having one built right know, can't wait for it to be done.

    Man that is awesome. It just goes to show that you really don't need high priced guns to kill your game.
