Re: Going elk hunting this weekend

What kind of bullet would you be shooting out of the 25WSSM? I assume yoou are getting about 25-06 velocities?

    shot was quartering to hit just in front of the shoulder and bullet stoped in off side shoulder taking out both lungs and top off heart. i was pretty pleased with the way the accubond preformed. entry hole was about the size of a 50 cent piece with no exit hole, not alot of meat damage, but kind of expected that from such a small bullet and such a big animal. makes for a good round if shot placment is right and within range.
    gun used was one i built myself:
    25 wssm
    26" shilin match grade bbl
    blue printed remington 700 short action with sako extrator
    HS sendero style stock
    leupold 6-18X40 vx-II
    110 gr accubond, 43 gr imr 4350 at about 3100 fps huntinfool18
