Just found this forum and it looks like a really good one. Just the place where I can find the right answer to this question.
My son will be hunting elk and deer in Area 15 east of Yampa in Colorado this year in late October. It will be his first time for elk ever. He has been deer hunting for many years and is very comforatable with his Ruger Model 77 .270 and would like to take an elk with it.
Without reloading, is there a factory round that you would recommend? I, myself, have taken elk with a .270, but went to a 7mm many years ago.
What do you say? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks...and again, great forum.
