    Bullet selections is still limited severely compared to the other calibers, so your chances of finding the right combination are hampered from the beginning.

    To answer your question--yes--as long as your gun shots a 115 berger VLD or 115 ballistic tip or maybe 100SMK very well.

    bullets are limited, but it can be done--257 ackley is probably the most efficient wildcat in that cal. then again you have the wssm coming out.

    I suppose you hunt varmints with a 50cal.

    Prairie dogs @ 2000 yards.That 750Amax fights the wind and you can spot the shot a lot better than most but the recoil makes for a long day [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
    Havent tryed the 25-06 yet,will a Savage barrel handle the 115grainers?
