Keep in mind that RL22 is fairly temperature sensitive.   :)

The move won't be complete till sometime next year. I'd be interested in a Wyoming rifle.   :)

Funny story, my dad and his friend were headed to do some ice fishing in Wisconsin during late deer season and hit and killed a deer with the car. Upon entering "deer camp", the same argument about best caliber for deer was raging. My dad said the best was a 88, Oldsmobile 88.   :)

Good story, MM!    Deer hunting on my dad's place near Crapo MD. , we heard one of the hunters shoot a number of times after we had all got back to the house at dark. I waited a bit and then went to help drag the deer back.  I saw the drag rope over the hunter's shoulder but could not see what he was dragging in the calf deep grass. We got it back up to the house and when we all saw the fawn, jokes were he shot Bambi. My dad went into the house without a word. He came back out with 2 slices of bread and asked if he wanted to eat it there or wanted it "to go".  :)

Sounds like a plan! Good luck!   Mine will be close to the first of the year.  :)

5 year old thread and notice how many posters disappeared in that time? It seems we all have our own "best", just like scopes, calibers, and whatever. LOL! Zonie and "what's in your gun" is the best answer. I remember deer hunting in the 1960's and you had the choice of Remington or Winchester ammo. They worked just fine!  ;D

I have taken more deer with Remington CorLokts than anything else. Lately, my best hunting bullet is the 140gr. Barnes TSX out of my Model 70 7mm WSM. It works well at both close and long shots and is real close to 1/2 moa.  I really want to try out the  220gr. Woodleigh out of my 325 WSM on a hog.   :)

After 13 go rounds with skin cancer, going naked is not a option for me.  LOL! Stuart is not very far north of me. Besides, at my advanced age, I would be charged with "assault with a dead weapon"  ;D

The flight time of the bullet at those distances allow too much time for a critter to move, IMO.

Finished his back yard today and proceeded to get a lecture on how I should have done 5 days of work in 100+ heat indexes from a total non participant.  Wanna guess which 2 words I used?

Somebody was crazy enough to marry my ex?   ;D

I'm not sure that Weatherby is in a position in the middle of the move to answer questions about it right now. I sure would give them a call or a email when they can answer. Hope it shoots as well as it looks!   :)

Amen on each rifle has a mind of it's own!  I keep notes on such things!  :)

I am a WSM fan!  The serial number should hold all the answers. I don't think they made a Mark V in 300 WSM, only Vanguards.  :)
