That's a great way to hunt, I agree. I'm biased of course, but the standard S&B softpoints in 7x57 and 6.5x55 (or 6.5 Creedmoor) are just plain clean killers. They're that perfect combination of medium velocity cartridge and reliably expanding bullet. They won't hang together for pretty marketing magazine photos, but they absolutely kill game quickly and cleanly. It's all I use for plains game up to kudu and wildebeest. Put it in the right spot and the animal's going down.Tango, thank you for that feedback. I feel a bit more comfortable now. Looking forward to using this rifle in my favorite method of still hunting deer.
We bring in as much of the 7x57 as possible, but recent market conditions have made it impossible to keep up with demand. We don't have a retail sales program at this time, however we have several good online resellers/dealers that stock all of the S&B loads as they become available; SG Ammo, Target Sports, Lucky Gunner and Midway. SG Ammo probably stocks the widest variety and all of the unique loads when they come in.I wish the SB importer here would bother with taking in 7x57 with the various bullets,but apparently no or little interest at their store for it.
That i forgot to post, here its mostly the 6,5,.308,30-06,8x57 ,7x57R, x64 and x65R ,and somewhat of 9,3s.Just noticed the Norway location, I'm sorry I can't help or comment on that market.
