Nice looking rifle

I have heard of folks hanging animals head down but we have never tried it. Beef farmers will tell you that the longer they hang beef in a cooler the better the meat will taste but I have no experience with it.

I am looking at possibly purchasing a Mark V Accumark in 270 Weatherby Mag and only want to purchase one type of ammo to take whitetail, black bear and moose. I have cut it down to two choices, 140 grain Accubond or 150 grain Partition.

I am not interested in reloading so it would just be factory ammo, what are your thoughts on the best all around bullet.

I watched a documentary on the bombing last night, some of the footage was unbelievable

Sorry can't help you with reloading 25-06 but I do use, with great results, Winchester 90 grain Positive Expansion Points factory ammo.

DW5
Good luck on the hunt with your dad, you both must be off the wall excited. The .240 sounds like a winner.
Any thought of bringing the .270 WSM just to mix things up.

I would guess that at the speed the 6.5-300 generates a Barnes, Hornady GMX, Winchester E-Tip type bullet would be a better choice to withstand the speed.......IMO
Welcome to the nation, you have come to the right place to gain knowledge. These guy are a wealth of information

That is some seriously good shooting DW5, looks like the .257 is dialed in

Are you sure you didn't use your .257 Mag Roger....the little .204 vaporized those dogs.
Thanks for bringing us along on your trip

Think of it like this the larger case/chamber needs more powder (larger case) to get the same pressure a (smaller case) does.

Great explanation purplefox.
I am not a reloader so when you folks get into a discussion about reloading I find myself scratching my head.....lol
I plan to get into reloading when I retire in a few years so maybe by then I will be able to chime in...
Until then I will continue to enjoy your threads and learn

I wonder how many staff will be making the trip and how many new hires they will have to take on. This must be a very stressful time for the Weatherby family and there staff.
I wish them well....
Thanks for the update Roger
