So stinking pumped this morning. Me and another handgun hunter (Andyhunter on this site), drew New Mexico.

Not only did we draw, but we drew our first choice...the Gila.

Not only did we draw the Gila, this is our first year to apply.

Crazy lucky!

Congratulations!

Are you going to use your new .460??

Whit,
This right here, is exactly why I ventured off into the .460 and have been working since last summer on developing a platform and load. Just. For. Elk.

My goal is to be extremely proficient with the BFR (topped with RMR red-dot) out to 150 yards, off shooting sticks.

I'm already feeling really good with what I have right now out to 100, which is the furthest I've shot it so far. But every time I go to my lease, I spend a considerable amount of time working on this exact scenario.

Now that I have a load that I'm 95% sure I'm using, it's time to go beyond 100.

Thanks for asking!

Good luck. I hunted the Gila in 84 with a flintlock longrifle. I had a Bear, Deer and turkey tag. Saw a lot of elk near a place called Lost lake we found. We south at Reserve and just out of Pleasanton where you turn off the Highway to the San Francisco Hot Springs we drove up into the wilderness. Lot of turkey. Found one bear in 9 days. Saw several mountain lions in the canyons.
Good luck.
Mike
