Just wanted to share yet another successful hunt using Hornady bullets. Yesterday, November 19, my brother and I took to the elk hills here in Montana in search of the elusive critters after a good fresh snowfall. At 7:30 AM, we spied 7 spike bulls walking over the ridge, and starting to feed in a big park. As 2 fed side by side, I ranged them @ 465 yds. My brother and I set our scopes for 450 yds, and dropped them in their tracks. My brother's bull fell to a single shot from his .270 Wby. Mag. handloaded with the 140 gr. SST, and mine fell to a single shot from my 6.5x284 topped with the 140 gr. A-Max. That's right, the 140 gr A-Max!!! The bullet was not found, but obviously did the typical Hornady Bullet one shot kill that I've experienced with the "hunting" class bullets. What else needs to be said...? Perfect!!!
