    Boz,
    Thanks for your reply. I had already looked at the pictures - very impressive! Very nice bull. What did it weigh? I believe if I get an opportunity to go on a bison hunt I'll use the 215 and do my best to place the bullet in the heart. I believe bullet placement (assuming your using the appropiate bullet) is the key to recovering whatever animal we're hunting and would definitely be crucial in bringing down a bison. Besides the two whitetail bucks I have taken a cow elk with the Berger bullets but the elk was taken with a 190 grain VLD instead of the 215 hybrid. The elk was DRT.
    If I do have an opportunity to take a bison with this bullet I'll post pictures.
    If anyone else has any opinions or advice please reply.
    Thanks again.

    That's the plan I would have if I were shooting buffalo, 215 Berger just of the elbow! A local buffalo rancher shoots them there with a 243 so I would think a 215gr bullet would get it done, the buffalo I've been around were much easier to kill than an elk IMO.

If you do go with the RUM I would definitely go with the 230's.

    How many rounds you get before your 300wm barrel out. Thanks

    Haven't had one wear out yet. But I have had one at 2000 rounds it still was in the game.

    Just rounded 3100 yesterday. The first 3000 were with 208 Amax's, and then Broz got me interested in the 215's. The barrel is a 28 inch Rock Creek Mtu. I Gun Juice it every 400 rounds when I clean it.
