325 WSM, they finally made it!! It only took two years to persuade Todd that the handgun in the WSM's would work. They will also make the 6.5x284 now as well. but they did advise me that inorder to remove a live round the bolt would have to be removed [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]that was a given.
I may have to think about that as the next one but it will be a while before that becomes a reality.
the 325 is shipped and should be here today or tomorrow.will post pics when it is here.
thanks Ernie, been working on the collection for some time. now it is time to sit back and shoot them. the sunshades are for the compact rifle scope, I pulled he info from the burris site. Doug first told me about them in WY last year. They fit the 3x12 perfectly
Do you have a 338 WSM? I think you would be very impressed, especially with the 180 and 225 gr Accubonds. Mine will get 2950 fps with a 180 gr in the 15" Lilja.
The larger bores really free up extra velocity by reducing baring surface for a give bullet weight.
The 338 WSM is an absolute hammer on big game out to 500 yards, well alot farther then that but that is as far as I have used it on big game.
Will be interested to hear how your 325 will perform. There are some very good new bullets out for that caliber as well!!!
Also, do you have a 6.5mm WSM???? Another hell of an option in an XP. near 3100 fps with 120 gr Ballistic Tip. Just getting ready to test the 130 gr Accubonds out as well. Mine is actually set up for the 140-142 gr class bullets but it shoots the 120 gr Ballistic Tips so well I never got around to testing any longer range bullets!!!
Keep us posted.
