    Elmer was a "bigger is better" man and in some cases he was right. But, I never read or heard of him saying that the .375 H&H was the only elk rifle. Elmer was opinionated of course, but his opinions were based on actual experience and not from reading other peoples writings. I personally knew people at one time who took elk with the 30-06 and had no problems doing so. Range and bullet placement is key. He championed the .333 OKT(misspelled probably) for anything on the NA continent except for grizzly/brown. I corresponded with both Elmer and Parker thru letters way back when and they always answered my letters with questions. I should have kept those letters but did not. This before computers of course. james

    at one time #2 son was known to shoot guns with lots of recoil. 454 Casull, 44 Desert Eagle, 300 Win Mag and other such guns. One day a bunch of friends were at a public range that would rent you private ranges. We rented one. #2 was shooting assorted large bore rifles. 375 H & H was not too bad. Then he shot a 378 Weatherby. Pulled the trigger once and said thats twice, first and last time I am ever going to shoot that gun. When the owner of these two guns passed away I bought the 375 H & H for my son. He has one box (20 rds) of ammo for it. His current favorite hunting rifle is an ultralight Tika in 6.5 Creedmore.

    Yep. That's him. I tell people I'm crazy, not stupid. I think he's crazy AND stupid.
