Good to hear mate. Yep although I am a dead set Weatherby man I too think you should get him to use the 257 Roberts!
I have a Remington 700 in one and it is a tack driver. It's one underestimated little round if ever there was one.

That's one sweet looking .300 wby.

Man I just drooled all over my keyboard after looking at that rifle! It's a beauty.

Haha what a great yarn. Made me laugh at the thought of a grown man hiding his whisky on his son. Priceless  :)

Welcome to the Nation. I use a powder here in Australia called AR2213sc which is sold in the US as 4831. It is a great powder for the .257 weatherby.

I'm with the guys that don't care for them. While anybody can appreciate reduced recoil, to me, the tradeoff is not worth it. The noise is insane and if anybody is standing to your side - poor them - a blast of crap in the face on top of the noise. I'd rather have the recoil. Most any rifle is tolerable on recoil for the one or two shots fired in a short time on a hunt.

Yep I'm with you on this one Tex. My thoughts exactly.

Gee you should here the anti's and Greens carry on if us hunters were to suggest giving game meat to the hungry and needy here in Australia! We are not allowed because of government rules and regulations that have been put in place because of all the anti hunters and vegetarians. It is a shame really because us hunters could go a long way to helping out those that need a little bit of help.

Wow great report. Congrats on getting a freezer full of beautiful meat. Sounds like the .340 done what it does best!

Well done Bad! Congrats on getting rid of the habit. I quite 10 years ago and have never looked back.
The hardest thing for a while will be when you have had a couple of drinks. But stay strong mate.
This my favourite drop. Blue Label Scotch.

Congrats on a good one Oscar. What ammo you using in your 7mm Wby? Do you have a photo of you with the deer in the bush? Like a trophy photo taken in the bush?
