I had a bunch of reloading stuff I bought from a buddy. I kept some and sold some. The 25 WSSM was the hardest to sell. It seems to be a fairly unpopular caliber. However, I did find a website devoted to the WSSMs. I believe it was www.wssmzone.com. Good luck.

The guy that guided for me Elk hunting loved the 25WSSM. But he is a quarter bore guy and had a 257 Weatherby as his Elk/ Deer rifle.
You should be able to find one in the new bin cheap. Check with your local gun shop. The only down side is getting the brass.
Guys that love 25-06 love it. At my club there are a few guys that have them. Recoil in nothing.
Good luck.

Quick, take that hunting rifle to a benchrest match - you'll clean up with groups in the ones! ;)

Been playing around with one in an AR. So far so good. Only tried sierra spbt and barnes x. Have taken elk, whitetail, mulie and 1 pronghorn. Didn't like the taste of the antelope, wont be doing that again, gave the meat to a neighbor.
Ballistically doesn't seem to differ a whole lot on paper from a 25/06. Being short and fat tends to give it an edge over the /06 though on accuracy. Shoots like a lot of benchrest rounds. Worth a shot if you have an itch to try.
