Re: Rem 700 Sendero caliber swap questions

Well, not postive if I'll be able to get it now....Just found out funds are gonna be coming up short for the next couple weeks. Hope it's still there when my money gets back right...Damn....That's a bummer.

Anyone wanna buy a boat? That would really help to kill my debt issue.

    Just curious....who makes a 142 gr 25 cal bullet? It must be a specialty hunting bullet.

    The name of the forum is Long Range Hunting.

    The general problem with the 25 cals is that the bigger bullet companies do not make any long range hunting bullets in 25 cal so everybody just makes do with poor choices of medium range bullets.

    From Left to Right
    257Wby with 130 gr RBBT HP Wildcat
    7mm 200 gr RBBT HP Wildcat
    257 cal 142 gr RBBT HP Wildcat
    257 cal 130 gr RBBT HP Wildcat
    6mm 115 gr Berger (IIRC)
