If anyone has contemplated adding a Whelen to the collection, check out the new CDL SF that Remington is offering this year. Cool gun! With the new 225 Accubonds with a coefficient of .430, the Whelen pretty much duplicates the trajectory of a 30-06 with 50 or so more grains of bullet weight. In my experience they absolutely crush animals out to 400 yards and tend to be very easy to load for.----SS
My gun shoots 225's way better than 250's. I really like the 225 Accubonds but, at over a dollar a piece, they get a bit pricey to plink with. The Sierra's are an absolute hammer on wild hogs. I have had some jacket separations but no hog has ever survived a collision with them. Bears fall over dead pretty quick when shot with them too. ----SS
