| | Favorite elk rifle
I have a Savage 111 in 270win using Barnes 130gr spitzers @3000fps. (Hand loads) Zero is 200yds. 1/2 moa groups out to 500yds, with a drop of 36.6inches @ 500yds. Trigger was cleaned up and lightened by a trusted gunsmith. My rifle doesn't seem to take to the 150gr bullets. I really love this caliber!!! Some friends say the load is too light for elk, but I have never shot an elk that wasn't an immediate stop with this combination.
