Had I been able to finish my elk rifle in time for the season to start, I wouldn't be shooting elk with my .264. But so far, the 140 gr nosler partitions have blown through everything in their path. There are a couple of older posts with progress pictures covering her build process. That little bitty bull is a 7x7 by the way, too bad he didn't get to grow up. Next up was a cow elk, she took two steps and fell over. On the bull, the bullets penetrated both shoulders. I was kinda worried that I would be a little undergunned, but you can't argue with those results.
