Not interested in semi-autos @ this point. Thanks.
Hey, r u da guy I red about in what was it? Zane Grey, North of some thin'??
Ubetcha!!! The 250 is plenty for wolf. Especially with the fast twist and heavy for cal bullets. The only real benefit of the heavy projectiles is longer range and improved wind handling.
Any bullet the 250 will shoot well will do the job.
Shot placement, as always, is king. But, keep in mind that their heart is just behind the last rib. If you want to take one home move the shot a bit more forward. Think bait about that one.
A local just received his Montana Rifle in 220 Swift as his wolf rig.
Good luck on your Woofin'.
