Rifles / Re: 300 Weatherby Mag
« on: June 30, 2018, 03:42:22 PM »
Talked to the Custom Shop middle of last week. #1 rifle coming back to them is the .300 for brakes. I'm on that list! Bought a mint 1972 West German Deluxe that looks like everyone that owned it was afraid to shoot it. I bore sighted w/ a Vortex 4x16 PST that came off my 30-378 Accumark. shot twice w/ a very light shirt on. Could feel the bruse developing, but the accuracy was phenomenal! Note- i bore site by looking down the barrel and tuning the scope to expected impact.
2nd rnd at 100 after minor correct was bull exact. But i digress, the stats that they list under their Accubrake page for recoil poundage is very accurate. @25#'s the 30-378 wasn't anything that made you flinch. The 300 w/o a brake at 39+#'s will take it's toll unless your padded. I elected to just get it over and have a brake put on it. When i hunt here in WI, it's usually cold enough that i have a lot of clothing on, but w/o a brake and lighter cloths, i could not shoot this rifle a lot at one time. I love this caliber and rifle! Wish it had a 26" barrel but not a big deal. PS, owned a .270 deluxe for 35 years that was handed down to little me. Reload exclusively with Norma or Weatherby brass.
Have fun w/ any decisions you have to make!

Hey if you can after launching some rounds, post what the recoil was like. i see there's no brake so i'm curious. I picked up a 72 W. German 24" that kicks like a mule comparable to the 40# foot pounds listed under the brake accessories.
Sending mine in for a accurbrake install.

Regards,
David
