Just for giggles, I posted the article I wrote for Texas Sporting Journal about the Weatherby hunt in Sonora, Texas. Hope you enjoy it.
I have am going elk hunting next year with this gun. I shoot lower grain bullets out of it at home on whitetail. My other 300wby my son will be using on this hunt, so I have to use this gun.
All the reloading data says the 1.12 twist rate in these rifles will not stabilize heavier bullets. I wanted to see if anyone had experience in relo...
I'm just curious if the Howa made rifles and the Mark 5 rifles have the same amount of free bore? I follow the reloading posts and wonder how one compares to the other.
What other possible differences could there be that might affect reloading?
I just bought a new Weatherby Stainless S2. I've always loved the cartridge since the first time I shot one, but this is the first one I've owned. I'm a reloader. I'm looking for pointers. I know weatherbys are known for having a lot of freebore. I usually start reloading other cartridges by first measuring its freebore. Then, I...
Idaho wildlife officials say it cost $30,000 to kill 23 wolves last month in northern Idaho.
Idaho Fish and Game announced earlier this week the money is coming from licenses the agency sells. The agency last month said USDA Wildlife Service agents killed the wolves using a helicopter in the Lolo elk zone near the Montana border to impro...
Having graduated with a BS in Wildlife Science many years ago, I'm pretty familiar with both sides of this issue. What I can tell you is, one of the biggest problems with this, and many other wildlife-related regulatory decisions is the abject ignorance of those making the rules and regulations. I don't mean the folks at G&...
Any chance they will ever make these rifles again ?

I have also been hearing about Chinas aspirations toward the country of Japan. I have been hearing about the recent hostile posturing of North Korea. ...
I was wondering if a 300 win mag round will fit a 300 mark v weatherby?
If you're just wanting to shoot the rifle some, there are cheaper 300Wby rounds available. Look at online retailers unless you live in one of the oppressive tyranny places run by statists. You should be able to find Weatherby's economical line of 180gr Spitzers for $35-40, or offerings from Hornady in 300Wby for $40-50. This should get yo...
Guy's, While down at one of our local gun shop's today, I was checking out the consignment rack, looked down and saw A Pre-64 model 70 in 243. It was real clean so I picked it up and the gun was like new, I figured it would cost $800.00 to $1200.00, I looked at the tag and about wet myself. It said $275.00, I skipped over to the cou...
