because it's very popular with western hunters that I know. From the survey's that I have seen the .257 is the #1 caliber for taking antelope with the .243 a very close second. The early data on the .25 WSSM does keep in near the .25-06 but in a shorter, lighter action and rifle it may well find a home with the western plains hunters where crawling and walking is the norm. Only time will tell. LawdogThe problem is the 25 is not all that popular to begin with so I don't see a 25 WSSM lasting too long.
