Bob Beck 1380 yard antelope kill. 6.5-284

It looks like the wind got him for about 12" or so on the first shot. Second shot was spot on.

Lol. I know. The 6.5 mm and 7 mm bullets have the best ballistics for long range. That's why a lot of long range hunters are shooting the 6.5-284, 7 Rem Mag, and 7 RUM OR 7mm STW. Now for really big game like elk and moose there's always a crowd that has to use a 30 cal, but its not necessary. IMO. There is a video on YouTube of a guy shooting a huge bull elk at 900+ yards with his 6.5-284. Elk took 3 steps and fell over dead.

There is another video that ill post of another LR guru's boy killing a monster bull elk at 1376 yards with a 6XC. Which is a 6 mm bullet.
