Use Enough Gun

This is one of the best articles that I have read concerning elk cartridges and it can also be said for similar large game.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

Re: Use Enough Gun

Very good article and he makes his case very well. Many of the small gun guys will disagree but he does have mucho experience.

Re: Use Enough Gun

Well that was a good read. Just makes me wonder that I get so much crap about my 300 rum and all the 7mm,280, and short mag guys dish out how it isn't needed. just like i say why go on a 4000.00 to 10.000 hunt with a gun that may spoil everything IMO...later

Re: Use Enough Gun

His best point may have been when he said "does your gun put you at an advantage or a disadvantage"?
