First load with this combination and grouped 5 shots well at 100 yards. Using 4x scope so larger magnification could improve performance.

The 250 gr Nosler Partition makes a good load for moose and bear.

Weatherby SBGM 24". Sierra 250 SBT, WBY brass. 100 yard 3-shot bench avg 0.83", 200 yard 3-shot bench avg 1.0". Velocity at 65 F. over Shooting Chrony, SD 8. However, W760 is temperature sensitive and velocity will vary +/- 4 fps per 1 degree F. temperature change. Took several heads of African game with htis load, including two (2) 1300 lb Eland in which the bullet penetrated both shoulders. No recoveries, full penetration on all shots. Good killing power as well.
