Welp, we got it done in Wyoming this year on our second trip. 28 Nosler at 450 yards smoked this bull in Wyoming. All happened so fast we did not get it on video but was a great trip. Impressed with the cartridge and the 175 LR accubonds. Defiantly my best bull to date.

Welp I have 12 shots through it total smile But Was on at 900 so Got to be close. Just picked a mild load with Retumbo cause thats what I run in my LR7mag. Running dope at 3050, but has plenty more room to pick that number up. To be honest I was in such a hurry did not even look at ES, trying to get all the other customer guns out don't have a lot of time on mine smile. I shot 2 through crono plugged it in phone. Shot the 600 the 800 and the 900, set a 300 yard Zero and flew to Wyoming. Dialed at 450 and 1 shot on the elk. Going to mess with load after we smoke a white tail this weekend in our south texas opener.

3050 it is.

I'm pushing a 180 gr 3080, and that's all I can do. I wouldn't be surprised if you exceed 3100 fps.

Real nice bull and the rifle looks great too, what kind of finish on the barrel? Let us know how the white tail hunt goes. I guess your having a big cook out with the elk and white tail, right?
