Here is a few pics of mine, that I have on this pc. I will get more pics of some of my other weatherby's, on my next days off, if I have time.  8) 

The first one is my 460 Wby, my 416 Wby and 378 WBY look exactly the same. The next one is my 375 Wby, next is my fibermark 270 Wby, next is my fibermark 7mm Wby. The next one is my synthetic 30-378 WBY that until last summer I totally forgot I had for 5-6 years sitting in one of my safes :o The last is my CFP in 223  8)

Funny story about that synthetic 30-378, I brought it at a local gun auction for around $600 if I recall correctly, 5-6 years ago, maybe a little longer. It was unfired NIB, but the muzzle break that came with it, has no serial # on it, and it a different color, but it for a 30 cal. Who know's how that happen. I was going to use it for a donor action for a custom built 500A2, so it didn't matter about the different color brake. I put the rifle in the back of one of my safes, until I needed it for the project I was going to do. Plans change, I didn't do the 500A2, and I totally forgot I had that 30-378 in the safe, until last summer, I was looking in that safe for another rifle, and found the 30-378.  ::)   :o  My gf, told me I was likely the only person, that would forget a 30-378  ::) Till this minute, that rifle is still unfired, I haven't decided if I should change out the Tupperware stock for a Bell & Carlson, scope it, and spend the time working up loads for it. I rarely use the other 30-378 I got.

You have a great stable of guns Catskinner.I'd have to try out the 30-378 even if left it in the Tupperware stock just to see what it will do. ;D

Well, I really hate to brag and show off my Mega dollar Weatherby but here goes. This is my Weather-or-not-bee that shoots every caliber you can think up. I've used it to shoot numerous wall mounted bucks and even wall mounted elk. I've even used this high dollar rifle to shoot deer right through my TV screen. It never misfires and so far has never missed. Another thing I've noticed about it is that I never need hearing protection while shooting it, how many of you guys can claim that? Please try to keep this special rifle our little secret, I'd hate for this to get out to the rest of the world, I don't want to have to respond to the millions of emails and phone calls I'll be getting if this goes beyond us.

looks like an awful quick bolt throw... must be a WSM.

  Nothing is legal in MD., you know that. That's why I have it. The ATF and Liberals haven't figured out how to classify it yet. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to tax it, after all they gave us a Rain tax and a Flush tax. (tax us a fixed amount each month for having a flush toilet). Only in Maryland.

  That was installed by Weather-or-not-bee's Customless shop. I like the way they used orange so the feds would think it's some kind of toy.

Those are both sweet looking rifles. What type of Vanguard is that? And did you put a different stock/have work done to the original on the MKV?

Thanks. I painted both stocks though each rifle has a set of stocks nothing else done to the MKV except I hand honed the bolt lugs. It was a bit sticky when I got it. The Vanguard has been Cerakoted a silver grey color.

Ah. You did a good job. I was trying to remember a Vanguard that was cerakoted like that. What scope do you have on the MKV?

Nikon Monarch 4x16 or something close to that.

fuonlynu, those Vanguards are sharp looking. 

BB, love the look of that DG 375 H&H.  Well done my friend.

Firstly I am taking it on a hunt for Texas longhorns down here in March. A bloke has had them running wild on his property for several years now. So hopefully it will get blooded in. I will be using either 300grn Woodliegh PPSN's or 300grn TSX's. I have both loaded up ready to test.
Title: Re: Show us your Weatherby!
Post by: BB340 on January 16, 2018, 01:49:13 PM
Nice BB.The 375s have a little muzzle rise don't they. :o


Yeah they have a little bit of oomph to the shoulder and muzzle rise. But I find them rather comfortable to shoot. Especially the Weatherby DGR. It controls the recoil really well. I was consider rechambering to .375 Weatherby but think I may leave it as is...
I have another .375 H&H on a ZKK 602 action and that thing wallops me a bit because the stock is way to big for me and doesn't fit me properly.

Haha yeah well they also must of been good swimmers to make it all the way down under to Australia  :D
They imported them quite a few years ago and have had them running wild ever since.
