There is a picture of a kid with a dead moose in the new AK Hunting Reg book. The caption says he killed with a .243.

The .243 is a favorite with a lot of native hunters and I think it's great for caribou, sheep, goats and black bears. It would do the job on an elk with a good bullet at 300 yrds and under with an emphisis on under.

But 535 yrds? Done by a 12 or 13 y.o.? Nah...........someone is either blowing smoke or got overly ambitious with their range estimation.
