Blessed to get this guy this year ...

.30 Nosler in my Nosler Model 48 Long Range
Nightforce ATACR 5-25x56
180gr AccuBond at 3196fps at the muzzle
423 yards (Estimated 2400fps at this range)
Just about 19" of drop at 3000 feet

Scanned the area & saw nothing after bumping into a herd of 50 a few hours earlier & then saw this 5x5 bedded down 423 yards away oblivious to the world.

Not the largest of Elk, but very happy nonetheless!

Congratulations on your bull elk. The 30 Nosler is proving to be one heck of a game better.
Nice shooting.
