    ......”I eat heart/liver/lung=guts......” !

    I believe the proper name for them is organs, which are separate from guts ! Or maybe it just sounds better to the ear and just maybe to the stomach !!

      The triple shocks work for elk.
      A lot of other bullets do too

        The optimum bullet/cartridge for elk depends on the range you will shoot. In general, mono-metal bullets lose their expansion at velocities below 2000 fps so you will have to consider Click image for larger version

        I use the Berger hunting bullets for my 300 Dakota where elk shots could be out to 1000 yards but I use Barnes 168 TTSX for my 30-06 elk rifle where shots will be within about 450 yards. Attached is a comparison by Field & Stream from a few years ago that I found to be helpful.

            This is all great!!! Sorry for the conversational ghosting, but I am back to 70 hours a week at the plant. A new twist has originated from my original post, I have acquired a 7mm rem mag last week. I have only been able to find two different kinds of ammo for it, federal 150gr game kings and 160gr federal trophy bonded tips. It shoots both of them fine, so it’s making my decision of the two a little difficult.

              Go with the trophy bonded bullets for Elk.
              I have used 180 grain Game Kings in 30 Caliber on elk, and they worked great, but a bonded bullet is a step up and will do a better job if and when you hit bone in my opinion.

                My Remington 7mmMag likes a variety. I will show a target at 300yds with Winchester PowerPoint 175gr. Couple of my 7Mag rifles. Remington 700, 7mmMag 100yds, 175gr Remington

                Trophy Bonded are premium bullets, I would save them for hunting. Jim
                Picture only of my Mauser 7mm RemMag.

                  Nice!!! Reckon how the 160 trophy bonded tips will do for deer? Is a deer sturdy enough for the bullet to “work”?

                    It will kill deer just fine. I use a bonded bullet - 140 grain Accubond for this deer at 588 yards.
