I'm a big fan of 7mm-08. Kills Elk no problem. I'm taking my 6.5CM to West Texas. Hopefully the Accubonds will do the job. How far did the Ram go with 4 bullet holes ?If I had to do it all over again, I would have taken my 338 Sherman Shortmag instead of my 7mm-08 AI. I shot my RAM at an extreme angle 4 times at 350 yards, 2x in the chest and that tough critter still kept going. Was using Hornady 162 ELDx and they performed well, found two in off side shoulder and they had expanded well.
