i was thinking of trading my 300 roy for a 7 mm roy.i hunt deer now. a elk hunt is out of the ? now because of mony constraints.a mark v seems like a way to go.the 300 roy is getting hard on my shoulder any more.what are your thoughts on the 7 mm roy and what are your deer loads that you use.i have the delux version i got through the the bank of boulder back in the early 80s.it has a brown fiber glass stock and a # 2 26 in barrel.also does weatherby rebarrel there rifles,for this is a way i may go with.

given a 7 mm in the magnum ,what are your thoughts for its use on elk at long range,up to say 1000 yards as shone on the tv shows long range pursuit and best of the west plus extreme outer limits.i am told that it does not put them down like a 30 cal.

Rifles / long range shooting
« on: December 22, 2017, 06:09:02 PM »
I watch gunwerks show about working with a long range rifle.now, they shoot the rifle for a few days to see how it shoots at 200 yards for impack shift of the first shot.the groups our about 1/2 moa at 200 yards .this is used for shots out to 1000 yards on big game .do any of you do this with your weatherby rifles.my 300 weatherby has a #2 barrel and will put 3 shots of hand loads in 1/2 in at 100 yards.i am going to see if the rifle will stay this way in cold bore 1 shot on 1 day and not move for a cold bore shot over say 3 days to prove it can hit a deer out to 800 yards .
