Thanks guys. We took a 25WSSM AR15 on an elk hunt with us this year. Unfortunately, we struck out. We saw a lot of animals though and I had one really good opportunity at a shot, but I just wasn't able to put it together.

I was very impressed with the 95gr xp3. At 350 yards it still was able to pass clean through the elk. Pretty good for a 95gr bullet!
