    Nice animals! Kind of ironic that the animals taken with the 338 are half the range (or less) than those taken with the 25/06.

    Congratulations! Those antelope are both nice bucks and the first whitetail is a whopper. Have you scored that big boy yet?
    Oh, one more thing. You should smile in those pictures!:D

    Sambo thanks! I did score the big whitetail. He's 158 1/2" I had a shoulder mount done and he looks awesome. I was very lucky this year. And to to it off me and my buddy went out a couple days later and he dropped an awesome 140 with a big drop time!

    In the 25-06 I'm loading 100 gr tipped tripple shocks and rl22 I Used to shoot 110 accubonds with imr 4350but the ttsx groups way better in mine. I absolutely love my 25-06. And the Lapua is shooting 300 gr sm. And 92.5 gr of h1000 2750 fps. And it shoot almost one hole groups at 200 yards it was built by Dan groves a local gunsmith friend of mine.

    3100 if I remember correctly with a 22.5" bbl. I have found that ttsx shoot very well in most guns a lot of people don't like them but I am nothing but pleased with them. And what I really like is I use my 2506 for coyote and fox pretty often and the ttsx expands but doesn't blow huge holes just the size of a good mushroom.

    Never tried the Vld. I like bullets that retain a lot of weight for hunting. So I have stayed away from the vld in my hunting rifles. The accubond I liked great for hunting and retaining weight but would only shoot 3/4 " the ttsx give me about 1/4 "
