Rifles / Re: Left handed mark V questions

I have 2 Mark 5 ULW. One a wood blued in 25-06 (my 1st Weatherby I bought 20 years ago and that started my love affair with Weatherbys) and the other a newer synthetic in .240 Wby mag. I love the lightweight rifles and yes one does need to wait for the barrels to cool while shooting as they do tend to heat up rather fast. However the light barrels do not seem to affect accuracy as both my rifles are genuine tack drivers as long as I do my part.

Cleared In Hot!
Please no 460... Ouch
6.5 C ? 300 ?

Why no .460?? There are a lot of people out there that love the .460 and don't find it that hard to shoot. Me for one...
I think with the .505 and .500 being chambered in factory rifles now then Weatherby should bring out another big hitter to compete with them. I know i would grab one lol

Yes I am lucky to have one of those missus's that doesn't care if I buy a new rifle or not. Just as long as she gets to come along when we go to shoot it lol.

Poor little fish, what did he ever do to deserve the name "Crappie"?  ;D

Yep I'd be up for buying a limited edition Weatherby.

I'd also like to see them bring out another big hitter. Something like the .460 Wby necked up to .50 cal. I know it's been done by wildcatters, but a factory round would be great.

It is probably where you left your Weatherby pistol too. ;D

Sweet! It came up real nice.

Send some Down Under would yas! We are having quite a drought. Have never seen it this dry in my area. Terrible.

I really like that rifle Lady M. May ahve to look for one myself in the future... :D

Yep I'd be happy with that seeing as it's her 1st time shooting the rifle. Good work.

I want a .340 also but will have to save more money for that.

Keep saving and get the .340. You will love it lol  :D

I think most of us would suggest the .257 me included. As others have said, it would be a better all round rifle for her and can then be used for the occasional elk hunt using something like the 115 grain TSX.
Or you could go the standard .270 win (yuck) or as 257Shooter said go the .270 Wby which won't have much more recoil.
But after saying that I'd still go with the .257 Roy  ;)

She looks great. Hopefully it'll like those 140gr Corelokts. That is exactly what I use in my 7mm-08 Camilla. I had great success with them on feral goats and pigs out of my Camilla on my last hunt with it. They are a very underrated projectile and work just great.

Ammo / Re: Weatherby/Norma 300 Wby ammo -- field results, anyone?

I was going to reply to your post as I have that ammo to use in my .300 Wby. But I have not taken it out hunting to see how they perform. I too was hoping someone would of had some input on them as that is what I am going to use in mine for general purpose hunting.
