I would like to hear the results of that hunt!

I JUST ordered a box of the new 123 gr ABSOLUTE hammers for my 6.5 BEE. According Hammer it can do 300-400 fps better due to the slickness of the bullet.

123 at 3800 fps?? Heck yeah!

I'll have to try them in the Creed and 260 and their shorter than the 124 Hammer Hunters. Loaded up some 124 to test but my buds rifle needed some love so worked on it then switched to hunting Dove that day.

Lead off rifle will be 7 x 57 in old bubba-ed Mauser...... 150 gr Partitions, mild load

On deck will be back up of 300 Savage in 99 feather weight.......150 gr Hornady

On reserve is 270 Win in pre-64 Model 70...............130 gr Hornady

All 3 shoot well enough for my location in East Central Minn.

Always have at least one spare ready. more fun that way. Sometimes I switch during the season.

My hunting is mostly in brushy places. Shots longer than ~100 yards are rare.

All Winchester M70s...

Elk - Extreme weather in 300WSM, back ups could be Featherweights in 300WSM or 325WSM
Deer (in no particular order) - Featherweight in 7x57, XTR Sporter in .25-06, Ultimate Shadow in 25WSSM

I've always got the AR-15 in 6.8 SPC at hand for pigs

Rocking the M7 SS in 308W and for the first time in over a decade I'll shoot factory ammo in it. I bought 2 boxes of Hornady American Whitetail 150 grain IL's and they shoot under 1" 5 shots at 100 yards. I set the scope and put it in the truck.

I will of course have the old faithful BAR Safari 30-06 with 180 grain handloads handy.

If little man shoots this year, he'll use a Ruger SR-556E with TSX handloads. He still has some proving himself on the range to do.
