Re: Sheep hunt turned into wolf hunt. Success photo included.

Very nice photo of a successful stalk, I'm very envious, we hunted our wolves to extinction 500 years ago here in the UK....
Would you mind sharing your load for the 155 Amax? I shoot a Rem 700VS in 308 & use the 155 Amax. At the moment I'm using 42gn of a milsurp 308 powder for 2800fps, accuracy ~0.5" at 100m.

Load is 42.5 of BENCHMARK, federal GMM 210 primers seated to 2.830" OAL. Velocity is 2840 FPS. BC is .474 in my barrel.

Hope that helps!

Congradulations on the wolves, and good luck in your quest for the 160 ram.

Are the AMAX bullets your usual sheep load? I've been trying to decide between either the 162 grain AMAX or the SST for a sheep hunt in 2008.

Yes the AMAX is my ussual sheep load. Hair splitting accuracy, ultra high terminal performance and low velocity expansion for the long shots.

Wolf hunting isn't illegial in Idaho until you get caught! lol
Just do the 3 s's in Idaho shoot shovel and shutup. I wish they would become open in our hunting areas. They are a land pehranna.
They have ruined 2 of our favorite hunting areas and the big bulls are gone.
Great shot and great story. IP
