I agree but I use the 143 ELDX. I shot 2 deer and a Antelope and all were dead before the hit the ground. I hope in 2022 to go on a elk hunt and my 6.5 will be with me. I will not shoot an elk over 600 yards and I will make sure it's a shot in the ribs.I’ve killed elk with it. The 142 ABLR does a fantastic job.
There isn’t any hooved game animal in North America I wouldn’t feel totally fine putting that combo into within 600 yards. Black bears and hogs, too.
I wouldn’t choose it for the big bears, but I don’t hunt them, anyway.
