    Styled,

    Tell me about the barrel on your Cooper .26-06 AI. I am curious what kind of barrel does well with the Berger 115s.

    What powder and primers do you use with the heavy bullets. Have you tried MagPro, Ramshot Magnum or VV N-560?

    it was about lighter bullets killing varmints

    My relation to the subject is my favorite 25,is my pet the 25 Gibbs,living in Yukon and allowing for some long shots for caribou and black bears and sheep.At 5.3 lbs with a 4.5 x14 Leopuld I have taken caribou out to 883 mtrs with a 85 Nos BT,Rifle was my old worn out 270 M77.Black bear don't have a clue where and why their dead.A little on the light side for the rest of the game here besides wolf and coyote.Any way that my input
