At .264wm velocities it should.

Re: .264 win mag

I been hunting with 264 Win Mag for about 10 years. I've hunted Antelope, mule deer, and Elk. I use 140 gr XLC excellent round for elk. I never had a problem taken Elk from 50 to 400 yds. I used factory load Winchester 140 grain and they were coming out at 3,200 fps but I have a 26 barrel on mine. Remington are quite a bit slower.

I have owned a 264Win since 1963 always have hand loaded. I have used 100gr for wood chucks and fox. I have used 160gr round nose for moose and deer. I have mostly used the lowest power reloads as I do not get shots at more than 100yds.

I have downed a lot of deer with the 85 & 100 Ballistic tips with my 264
hit them above the shoulder and below the spine drops them where they stand every time.

Re: .264 win mag

My friend is helping with the Reloading right now. I used to have Alabama Ammo reload my ammo for me but I don't know what happened to their website. They did an excellent job helping find the right load for my first 264 win mag I owned. Now that I had my weatherby Vanguard in the 7mm Remington Magnum rechambered for 264 win mag I got the bug again.

Re: .264 win mag

Hey Guys,

Check out the new Cabelas shooting and reloading catalog. They have resurected the Winchester .264 Magnum Westerner. It is on the post "64" action but should still be one fine machine. Has the 26" barrel and all. Who sez this calibre is fading away ???
