Reloading / Re: 257 Load with IMR 7828
« on: March 16, 2018, 09:08:40 PM »
just drop down 5-10% from the max load and use that for your starting load. Personally, I would drop 5% to start.  8)

There you go Ronnyj, like Para45 posted, since Weatherby responded, you should at least contact them.  8)

I'm unfamiliar with the AR's, what is the thing sticking up on the barrel? Can it come off for a Scout type scope?
LOL, don't concern yourself!  Can you even get one there, even if it's dressed up as a India Indian?  Cosplay from the P M and family?    ;D

Don't rub it in. :-[ :-[

These are AR's aren't they? I can buy one up at PGT in Avonlea.

Colt LE6920, 16" Barrel, 1:7 twist, Fixed front sight/Magpul rear, GI rear stock, mag
5.56/223
$1,349.99
Colt LE6940, 16" Barrel, 1:7 twist, One Piece Monolithic upper, Sights, Mag, Sling,
5.56/223
$2,499.99

What's the difference for $1,100?

Big Muddy, all you need is, that your PAL is the one you can buy restricted weapons, and a membership to a restricted weapon shooting range, and you can legally buy AR's in Canada, just like handguns.  8)

Rifles / Re: my vanguard is all over the target!
« on: February 23, 2018, 07:30:40 PM »
there are 2 service centers for Weatherby in Canada, one is in Ontario( Ellewood Epps) and one is in BC(I don't recall the name of it). I've had a lot better service with ElleWood Epps.

keep us updated on what happens

That is not a bad price that 257 now a days here in Canuckastan. New that rifle with the brake would run you between $2700 - $3000 depending where you bought it.

I was searching around the internet and found this website https://www.bullets.com/  and they had some decent deals on norma ammo and brass for Weatherby. Being from Canada I cant get anything from there, but maybe some of you US members might find something you need  8)

I seem to recall a few years back on here, that someone from weatherby posted on here, that the rifles that are very accurate during their testing are put aside. They get labeled RC, and packaged with the target and list the ammo they used, but I'm not 100% sure on this.

have a great time  8)  I agree with what Para45 posted, practice shooting off of sticks, and don't take too many clothes, I learned those lesson's the hard way when I went on my first international hunt  ::)

Ammo / Re: Multiple Weatherby 7mm Dud

I agree with everyone else, give Weatherby a phone call, and talk to them directly. I'm curious now, it's been 3-4 months since this happen, have you tried any other factory ammo in the rifle?? Just to see if it's just that box of ammo, or maybe something with the rifle, like Danno50 has posted? If you can post some pics of the primer strikes on the dud ammo, and the box they came in. We are a curious bunch around here, I'm sure a few of us would like to see a few pics of this.
