Via 6.5-300 Wby, 3520 FPS, 320 yard. Big cow, she had her head turned behind her shoulder, bullet went through the head, broke rib going in, lodged offside shoulder. Pretty good performance. Cow was killed Wednesday on a damage/depredation permit. Enjoy

Those Scirrocos are about my favorites if they shoot. They are the age BBCs with some shape.

I know there's one guy who used that bullet out of a .260 for an Alaskan grizzly, but he's pretty much of a stunt-shooter.

The 150 from the 7 Mags and Mashburns has worked real well for us.

I didn’t kill it bud, saw it get killed. I would run those 130’s in my 6.5 Wby on anything. 👍
