    Default What do you guys think of the 6.8 special?

    Do you guys think it can take a blackie?Where would your shot placement be?How close?I know it can take a caribou at two hundread yards,and a moose,but it would have to be within fifty yards (which is likely).What do you guys think?

    150 to 200 yards tops, same as with my .300 win mag. Shoot them in the vitals (lungs/heart area).

    My dad killed a blackie with one a few years ago. Went 10 feet and dropped dead, left a massive wound channel! I killed a moose with that round as well, did a great job, 90-100 yd shot. Aim for lung/heart.
