I live in Colorado. This state boasts vast wilderness and a long hunting heritage. The typical hunting game, for example, is elk (elk, or wapiti (Cervus canadensis), is one of the largest species within the deer family), which is a fairly strong animal that is resistant to wounds. Unlike a man, it lives outdoors, running every day, and it certainly doesn't smoke or drink alcohol. Therefore, in order not to have a wounded game you would need a bullet with a high kinetic energy on the one hand, and on the other - high accuracy and minimal sensitivity to wind and errors in determining the range...

Gear Review
The idea that you buy your hunting equipment from those that use it themselves has somewhat faded away recently. Too many big box stores sell things that none of the employees ever have used or know anything about. The 1ShotGear Team strives to crush this industry standard. We only carry the best simply because we won’t sell what we wouldn’t trust to use in the field ourselves.
