I shot a cow elk yesterday with my 30-06 using 165gr. Remington Core-Lokts. 70 yds. broadside heart/lung shot. She didn't go more than 10 feet and was dead when I reached her. Upon skinning I found a 3 inch wound on the inside of the ribcage and wound track that extended only to the middle of the chest. No bullet was recovered. Complete fragmentation? This load was obviuosly quite effective in this scenario, however, I think I will go with a more heavily constructed bullet in the future for elk. I used this same load on a 200lb. buck last year with complete penetration. Plenty for deer, but a bit light for elk I think. What kind of performance is everyone else getting with their hunting loads?
