Re: Does SIZE matter?
Poachers in Africa use .308's to take elephants pretty often. Probably a big percentage of elephants are taken with a .308. But it takes someone who knows what they're doing to kill one with a gun that size. That's what I've read anyway. I've never been to Africa. I just read a lot of web sites and hunting mags. I have since I was a kid (hunting magazines). Keep in mind that the poachers probably shoot the elephants over and over and over. They don't care about anything but the ivory. And I'm sure they know what they're doing because it's been going on a long time.
