Now one needs a cannon cause too many think 500 yards is a close shot... RC 20 (post #4)
Well, it seems a 243 is good for nearly 700 yards.

Still yet, I'd prefer something with a bit more bullet than a 243. IMO a 243 on elk is analogous to using a 223 on deer. It'll work, but given the option I'd prefer something starting at 26 caliber with bullet weights of at least 130 gr.

But no, a cannon isn't required.
