Re: Ready for Caribou, Impressed with 300 WSM Again
I think caribou is better than elk. Driving up on do it yourself hunt. I usually fly up but driving this year. Always do it yourself and never an unfilled tag. We need another guy this year but leaving tommorrow.
I am using Magpro in the 257 wby with CCI 250 primers. Could not get consistent velocities with this one and the 215 match primers. I think it is 75.5 grains. I don't have my notes with me. Magpro has done very well for me in a number of chamberings. I found this rifle on the used rack at Cabelas at a steal and thought it would be a great deer-antelope round for my son. All I did was free float the barrel and bed it. Standard Mk 5 wby with brake. It is one of my best shooters always in the 1-1.5" range at 400 yards but yesterday it went crazy. That was a three shot group by the way.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
