Re: Hunt swap.....swap Hunts!!
i'm just south of durango in aztec.
i have 2 - 300 wsm's the above one was my first.
i used 68 gr's of imr 4350 behind a barnes 150 tsx.
the bull was broadside, and it blew right thru the chest.
it left about a quarter sized exit hole and shredded the top of the lungs. it only hit about 9 inches low from the top of the back, my hold, with the gun sighted in 2.5 inches high at 100 yards. then i rechambered another gun to 300 wsm, and have yet to kill with it.
i also have a 300 rum, new build, and a 338 edge in the owrks.
all for elk and lr deer hunting.
i like the 300 wsm, it doesn't recoil very bad, and velocities with the 150 tsx's are about 3200 fps.
i am trying out a load with imr4064 that runs a bit faster with less powder. can't remember the charge iirc it's 61.5 grains. i was getting about 3260 for an average.
