Re: 264 Win Mag, Which Bullet?

In a few weeks when I get unpacked I can help you with quite a few loads because I will be shooting my 264 win mag, 264 STW, 257 STW and 257 wby head to head with swift bullets to find the most accurate one for a quickly approaching dall sheep hunt. I can let you know exactly what works best in those. I have some good loads for them now but hopefully will have some outstanding loads soon. I don't think I have done work with Retumbo and the 264 win mag. I would just have to look at my data.

All I can say is that the 130 Sciroccos retain 82% no matter where you hit an elk, and always have a perfect mushroom. I am shooting them out of a 6.5-06 with a very large jump in order to fit the magazine. My experience has been that they shoot well out of a custom barrel and hit or miss out of a factory barrel. They are the best lead core bullet on the market, in my opinion.

To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
