300wsm
 
How many of you guys out there shoot a 300wsm? I have had one for a few years now and its still my favorite rifle. On another note, how far are you guys shooting with it?

I've shot them a bit. Only out to 300 confirmed yards. Hard to find space here. Shot a coyote at 250, ballistic tip. Stretched about 2.5 feet.....

Very nice. I've still yet to get me a coyote with mine. Farthest I have pushed mine is 700 yards (on paper, not hunting), but I hear of people shooting past 1000 yards. My dad borrowed it for an elk at 400 yards last year though, as he ended up having a prob with his gun.

I bought one an hunted with it a few times. I shot two sambar stags an a fallow hind . Its an Abolt an is actually for sale now.. I found it a very hard hitter.. At both ends. I cant comfortably shoot it at ranges i intended..
Great round macimum killing power.

I've heard a lot of people say they don't like how it barks at both ends, but with a limbsaver pad on the end of mine I can't tell the difference between that and a 30.06. I have the tikka t3.
