So I'm looking into a new long range elk whakin machine. With a recently developed hitch in my get-a-long, and some new hair tags, and keys to locked gates on the horizon, I will be looking to shoot farther and walk less. I have always been an up close and personal kinda guy taking some of my best deer and elk within 30yrds. I'm looking into either a .338, or a .300. In the past if it was outside 200yrds It walked till I caught up to it, now I'm going to be looking to stretch the barrel 500+ yrds and kill cleanly. I'm curious as to what you guys would suggest.
