the one and only time i had the privilege to punch a nosler partition thru an elk..was 2007. i had shot jackrabbits for years and years. big 300-400 yard shots..the early (re: dumb) days, i used my cheap bushnell binoculars as my "bipod". DUMB!! like G..i had winny M70 in 30/06. so accurate with my handloads. rifle was topped with a 3-9 VX2..i upgraded to a 3.5-10x VX3..but essentially the same thing. elk bugled at 200 yards..stepped out and i laid prone. i looked thru that scope at full power and was blown away how big it looked...wah..after shooting rabbits all those years..it was a chip shot. boom! it died on it's feet..but stood there..i had just enough time to put a second round an inch away from the 1st bullet hole. ruined a tad of meat.. bummer. i think a 3-9 or so is a fine choice. the scope is still small and relatively light. i like that. shooting somthing the size of a VW bug at my range limit isnt a huge task for my scope.
