Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / The 22LR
« on: March 18, 2019, 05:10:23 PM »
More than likely most of us has shot, owned or still own one or more of these. What's your story;
I started out with a l think old Stevens pump 22, to say the least it was used but l could hit a  squirrel in tree and that's all that mattered. From there it was a Remington bolt action target 22 with a peep sight. Won a lot of turkey shoots with that rifle. To now it is a Ruger 10/22. I have no idea how rounds this rifle has shot. It has taught both my daughters to shoot and countless neighborhood kids also. It still sets by the door ready to protect the ranch

What are your top 3 favorite caliber's past and present

Mine are
.257 Weatherby
6.5-284 Norma
.340 Weatherby

The 28 Nosler is a very impressive hard hitting big game round, doesn't make the top 3 but is a strong 4th

Winter storm warning posted for Colorado. Front range 6"-10". That's not a lot of snow but on the front range with this many people it becomes a big deal :o

This caliber has been out for awhile now. And many of you have bought one. Is anyone getting close to 1000-1200 rounds and if so what have you noticed in accuracy and velocity loss?

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Customer Service
« on: March 07, 2019, 07:14:01 PM »
I recently emailed the Custom Shop, the email went out at 8:26 am and I had a reply at 9:44. I sent another reply back and had a quote by 1pm.
I think the customer service that Weatherby is famous for is coming back. What more can you ask for.
Also a friend emailed the Custom Shop in the morning and had a reply in early afternoon the same day

Rifles / 28 Nosler
« on: January 27, 2019, 01:32:35 PM »
This rifle is new to me but not new.
First time to the range
Hornady Precision Hunter 162 gr ELD-X factory loads
10 shot group at 100 yards 1.38"
I called the one to the right so really it is a 9 shot group under 1.25"

Reloading / .257 / Barnes bullets
« on: January 20, 2019, 03:27:19 PM »
Pictures, 3 shot group at 100 yards 2 1/2" high, 1/2" left target. 3 shot group at 200 yards 3 inches high 3/4" left on plate. 2 shot group at 300 yards in the green plate. No adjustment of scope. The .257 is very flat shooting
Also l don't think Barnes bullets blow up the way it looks!
