    I have a few different calibers in the safe but I have to say my .270 Winchester handloaded with Accubond 140s has to be my go to for deer and elk. Real thumper.

    I shoot a 25-06 on deer, antelope and feral hogs and love the caliber, but I don't think it has enough oomph (shooting a 117 gr bullet) for elk or moose.
    CC, it seems like I'm in agreement with about everything you post. I shoot a 300 win mag and a 25-06. Pretty much handles anything I hunt. 180 accubonds shoot real well from my 300. If you don't mind my asking, what do you shoot in your Wby?

    I shoot 86.5 gr Reloader 25, 180 gr Nosler Partition & Lg Rifle Mag primer. Getting right at 3200 FPS. I also have a load for 150 gr but don't remember exactly what I'm using powder wise. Bullet is a 150 gr Sierra Game King BT.

    For me it is tough to pick between my 7 mag shooting 160 grain partitions or my 280 with 140 grain accubonds
