If an '06 was vanilla and a 7 rem mag was vanilla with caramel. What would a banana split be?

It's a whole bunch of ice cream.

I've owned a 243 win most of my gun owning days on this here earth. It's a performer.
I don't like going out knowing the shots I'm going to be able to do are very limited. I may see a big bull and not get the ideal picture book shot.

You aren't suppose to take the side of the face off. The object is to break the neck behind the ear. Your buddy made a very bad decision by trying to shoot his face off. He should have waited for a fly to land on his nose so he could target the nostril.
Because a buddy of yours doesn't know how or where to shoot. Doesn't make it a bad place to shoot. If that be the case. A 180gr 300 rum broadside, below the shoulder is a bad shot. They spent the rest of the day chasing down that one. It took 6 more rounds, from 2 rifles, for it to go down.
A larger caliber doesn't guarantee anything for a kill. A good hit will.

My question exactly. What does your buddy blowing the face off an elk, with a 30-06 have to do with, I met another hunter that dropped a Roosevelt with a head shot from a 243.

I am impressed. That you know very few.
Does that mean that you don't get out much?

Never met the guy before. Don't even know his name. But he did it and it was verified.
You must be getting into your second case of Bud by this time of night.
I also know of a lumberjack that has done the same thing, and more than a few times.
The first thing you have to know is. How to track and shoot.
But of course, your probably the best tracker and shooter in the Montana. Possibly, in the country. Just ask ya.

Go back and look at the threads you get involved in. You bring your psycho shit into every one. Stick to the topic.

I know of a guy who recently moved here from Colorado and has hunted elk with a .243 sice he was a kid. In terms such as these a head shot is all that is needed. But then again he went out with us this last and took a small 5X5 with one shot to the chest using 100 gr bullets and wasn't inpressed. After miles of tracking this last year he has now bought a .300 WM for elk hunting. he says that the body size of the anamials is a good 200-300 pounds differance between the elk in CO and ID. IDK about that but I do belive that he and the rest of us will be much happier to see him supporting a .300 WM this year in elk camp. Big smile Big smile
