Thanks for posting Darrell! I was fortunate to take this Marco Polo ram in the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan at 14,446 feet elevation. The H-S Precision in 270 WSM shooting Federal 130 gr. BT did the job at 135 yards. Glad to check this one off the bucket list.

How did you acclimate to the altitude? Any altitude sickness?

I was on a regime of Diamox. Stayed in camp a couple of days to get acclimated. Altitude sickness can lead to serious problems.
