    Central Oregon ML Elk hunt in early November. Remy 700 385gr plains bullet over 110gr FF2. Found the bullet under the hide. Fortunately this one only went about 20 yards before she tipped over. Great fun and hard work.

    Wow! Simple perfection right there.
    Great pics. The old GP 385 grainer worked flawlessly.

    Great shot. I really like the performance of the Hornady GP's. I've never recovered one yet.

    She's a beauty. And perfect shot, and bullet performance. Open sights, too. How far was the shot?

    She was close maybe 50 yards. Peep sight with aperture removed. For me a ghost ring is much more effective particularly if an animal is running, and Elk don't often hold still for me. This was the last animal in a group and the last animal will stop and turn to see if their threat is following them.

    No, but we did pattern them going to feed at late evening and returning to where ever in hell they go in the morning. We got lucky and knew the general area where they might travel. This animal went down in late evening and it was a long night for this old man.

    Love that bullet in my Renegade and was wondering how it would do on elk. Cool bullet pic. I’ve yet to recover one from a whitetail
