Looking for suggestions for 200-400 yard  shooting when hiking and stalking Elk with my 06. Thanks all.

Rifles / Weathermark sight in
« on: September 08, 2018, 07:19:07 PM »
Completed break in  of my weathermark and started shooting for groups. Very pleased that my 30-06 shot a  5 shot group that  is less than 3/4 inch at 100 yards . Can cover the holes with a  quarter. Likes Nosler ballistic tip 180 grain. My first weatherby. Stock and trigger excellent. I'm  believer.

Rifles / Sand bag placement for accuracy test
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:29:40 AM »
Has anyone noticed a difference in accuracy dependent upon what part of the forend contacts the front rest or sandbag? For example, at the end, middle or close to the trigger guard.
Is there  best practice or just see what the gun likes? It always seemed the gun shoots slightly high when the sandbag is at the end of the forend.

I read the FAQ's. When cleaning after each shot is that a full scrubbing with nylon brush or just running a few patches? Thanks

Rifles / Start a discussion on Mark V Weathermark

Just retired my 40 year old rem 700 BDL '06  in favor of a Weathermark  '06 topped with VX 3i. 3.5-10  x 40mm. The Rem was MOA out of the box in 1978. Fit and finish on the Weathermark is superb. Will break in soon per factory recommendation. Happy with my  made in USA rig for NE whitetail. Any Weathermark folks want  to share experiences good or bad?

Rifles / Scope mounts for weathermark 6 lug 3006

Looking for recommendations to mount Vx 3i 3.5-10 40 mm on Mark V Weathermark 3006.
Trying to keep weight down. Gun shop says 2 piece bases and fixed ring set up may not provide sufficient eye relief adjustment. Never used ring base combo and want to avoid a rail. Thoughts appreciated.
