In 1962 the 7mm Rem Mag essentially killed the 264 Win Mag because it was more versatile. Now the 6.5 Creedmore which is not anymore gun than the 6.5x55 is the greatest thing since sliced bread for elk. no it's not.
A 22 Hornet is an elk gun if you only take perfect shots and you only make perfect shots. the truth comes to light when you don't have a perfect shot, you take a long shot your wimpy gun isn't up to , or you don't make a perfect shot.
I wish I had a dollar for every leaker I had to follow onto my neighbors ranch shot by people who would only take shots their wimpy rifles were good for . nobody hunts my place anymore with less than a 270 and that's minimal in my opinion for the average lead flinger. I've found all the sharp shooters and ethics majors lose it as soon as there's hair in the scope. and this is just on friggin depredation cow hunts for christ's sake. " oh my boy is deadly with his 243 " . yeah WTF ever. I'm done with it.
Okay I'm off my soap box. just remember, You don't have to be a hero. use enough gun.
