Rifles / Re: .257 mag not grouping Barnes ttsx

Frist thing I would do, is to make sure the barrel is clean, then make sure all the action and scope rings are torque to spec's. Then I would try shooting it again, but this time secure a piece of cardboard to the plywood, and then secure your paper target to the cardboard. This will show you better if the bullets are keyholeing. If they are keyholeing, try shooting 100 gr spire point ammo in the rifle and see what they do. If the accubonds are not keyholeing, then try a different scope.
Knicks on crown towards the outside of the barrel, like the ones shown in your pics, won't hurt nothing. If there is knicks, on the inside of the crown around the edge of the bore will have an effect on things.

Rifles / Re: Anyone had an out of the box MK V

Most of my Mark V's will shoot moa or better with certain factory ammo, and all will shoot moa with reloads. Most times when people are bitching their rifle wont shoot factory ammo moa, is because they want to shoot an certain brand of ammo they think is good, instead of letting the rifle decide what brand is shoots well.

or at least a 1/8.5 or 1/9 twist barrel in the mark V would be great.  8)

awesome pics, and sounds like a great time, Brett. I need to quit buggering around, make some time and plan an African hunt, it's been on my bucket list for awhile now.

Rob


All I can say Rob is DO IT!! But be prepared as once won't be enough. If it's on your bucket list then get it ticked off sooner rather than later. Especially because times are a changing so who knows how much longer hunting will be easily accepted and affordable over there.

your trip, has kind of lit a fire under my ass to get an African trip planned in the near future. I had one planned 4 years ago,but had to cancel it, the oilpatch crashed here, and so did my extra disposable income fund for international hunting trips. But the oilpatch is turning around again, and the hunting fund is also.  ::)

Unless your really attached to your 300, just sell it and pick up a 7mm. With Weatherby on the move, your likely looking at a 8-12 month turn around on a rebarrelling job. Personally I wouldn't buy a used barrel off ebay, but to each their own.

Elk / Re: what to zero 300 weatherby for elk out to 400
« on: October 14, 2018, 05:01:35 PM »
I zero my 300's in at 3 inches high @ 100 yards. Depending on the speed of your ammo, that would put you close to zero @ 300 yards and about 8-9 inches low @ 400 yards. Elk have an approx., kill zone of 20 -24 inches, so that sight in will put a bullet in the kill zone out to 400 yards nicely. But, practice shooting out to those ranges, and see what your ammo is doing.

that's a great looking and  shooting rifle you got there Fotis, hopefully someone deserving buys it. I have one just like it, my favorite rifle for mule deer and sheep hunting.  8)

your best bet would likely be an online auction of some kind(ex. gunbroker etc) maybe find someone interested in the boxes and old factory ammo.

224king would know about the 224 ammo, but any of that reload ammo is worth very little. Very few people will buy or use other people's reloads, (too many unknown factor's, safety frist).
