Ok for those who are lucky enough to know me You will know I was and still am a huge 25-06 fan. Now at this time Im getting a twitchy funger... and with that Ive put a plan in place, and a check list of things to get and a rifle is on this list (again!!!!!) I dont regret selling up infact not having a shotty or a rifle was great, Ive spent some real quality time with the wife. At this time Im back with a shotty and in a wee syndicate which Im enjoying.
Now here goes the punch line!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ive no intention of shooting smelly stinking Reds ever again!!! highly over rated and too much work once they are down!!!!! I plan on sticking with foxes, Roe and Does for the most as Im too busy from may onwards with the Sea Trout and Pipe Bands. I was thinking of a 243 to start and running a lighter load with it, plenty enough for Roe. But with being a huge 25 cal fan I kept on going back to this again and again.
Then a wssm sprung to mind!! Mmmmm that was that a 243 wssm just to be different Thatll do I thought. But whilst trawling the WWW I stumbled over the 25 wssm. Now a decision has to be made.
the 243wssm still floats my boat but with my huge love of the 25-06 the 25wssm is and seems a good choice.
Now I know the 25wssm isnt that ballisticly different from the 25-06 but the shorter case floats my boat. And if Im correct it uses less powder. Against the 243wssm the only real difference I can see is that I can use a larger bullet.
Now what are your thoughts on the 2 rounds. Please dont post mines is bigger than yours etc. Im am only interested on a good discussion between the 2 Ive mentioned.
