    For the people not aware of what 358 STA is.
    It's the 8 mag or 375 H&H necked to 35 cal. and fire-formed to less taper and 35 degree shoulder. I suppose you could call it a 358/375 Improved.
    250's run 3000 fps with 5000 ft. lbs. of energy.
    Recoil is invigorating.
    225's run mid 3100's. These don't have the BC of the bigger 338's, but performance is no slouch either.
    This cartridge has the ability to deliver the goods at any yardage an average person should be shooting to.
    I killed my Brown Bear with this set-up, and really don't plan on doing it again, so I decided to sell it.
