Sniper :)

 I meant the performance of the 325 is higher then the 300 Win Mag not the recoil as you correctly stated.

In my never humble opinion ;D
I could see some need for a 30 cal bore that fits between the 30-06 and the 300 Win Mag case. Performance wise the 300 H&H would fit but being a long case it isn't practical these days and we don't need a belt on it for sure.

Good stuff, eh BC? ;D The .22LR/Mag have been around for a long time and have been popular for during most of its life. THAT is why I own and enjoy my Marlin 60 and Ruger Mk II. It's not going anywhere. I may still get a .17, but for now the .22's I have meet my small game, rimfire needs.

As for the RUM's, we won't even get started. Those fairly well died the moment they hit the market. I've never even seen a single RUM chambered rifle since they first came out. I just found the parent case for the WSM/WSSMs... and it kinda explains why they are so expensive. They're based on the 404 Jeffrey brass, which you don't see a lot of anyways and run around $2 each. If I were to get a WSM, I think the newer 325 WSM fills its niche quite well as it is comparable to the .338 with a good deal less recoil. I also think the new line that Ruger put out will have mixed results and looking at the ballistics, I agree with you there BC. I doubt any but the 375 will survive.

hunter, if you decide to keep the quarter bore there, then be prepared to treat it like any other wildcat. I do think that the .243 WSSM will survive though. That means that it will be a relatively easy transition to neck up the .243 to .25. Let us know what you decide. O0


Just wondering how that 22 thing is working out now ? Who would have ever thought that that 22 rimfire would be so hard to find and 17 hmr slightly easier to find.

Yeah on that, MO! And now the .17 WSM is in the mix, people dissed the future of it. Well, I can tell you, it's alive and well. I bought one as soon as they hit the stores and I love the round and rifle.

In fact, it's all I used for my squirrel hunting last season, and with great results.

And to top it off, I whacked a feral tomcat the last day of squirrel season with my .17WSM.  :twisted:  :) Cat received an angled body shot that dropped the varmint right in its tracks. Distance was 80-100 yards or so using 20gr VMAX ammo.

I am finding plenty of .17 HMR and .17 WSM ammo at one local store.

My Savage .17HMR sports a custom lefty curly grain cherry wood stock. Some folks (BC)  ;D would consider it lipstick on a pig but the rifle is a one holer at 100 meters, stacks the bullets.l

I admit it... the .17 is here to stay. I have to admit, going back over this thread from the beginning has been fun. I think I'll be getting a .17 WSM, now that I can reload them. I know a fella with a ton of potguts that need to be thinned out and this would do wonders at the longer ranges. O0
