Whitetail Deer / Re: Looking to add a new Weatherby
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:00:12 PM »
Thanks for the feedback!! Wouldn’t a 257 devastate more meat than a 270 or 7mm?

depends on the bullet you use, if you use a monolithic bullet(barnes,e-tip,gmx) in any caliber,you will have less meat damage.

Rifles / Re: Looking to add a 6.5-300 wby

Would it make sense to get a 6.5-300 Wby, when you already have a 270 Wby and 300 Wby, and the shots are under 200 yards?? realisticily nope, it would not. But if want to get another rifle, why not, got for it, never can have too many Weatherby's   8)

First, make sure everything is tight and looks good on the rifle and scope mounts. And if that don't help, you will have to try working up some different loads, until you find something the rifle likes.

There's really no need to get a 240, if you already have a 257, but I don't know a person yet, who has a 240, and don't like it.  8)

 I prefer the 270 and 7mm over the 257, but since you already have a 300 Wby, I would suggest the 257 and loading it with barnes, e-tip, or gmx bullets for less meat damage.  8)

cool pics  8)  I have always preferred mule deer over whitetail, in hunting them, eating the meat, or even just having them around the place, and watching what they do. It's funny watching them trying to hide, and their antlers are giving them away.  ;D

That would be a decent little rifle for bears over bait, where a long shot is under 100 yards.

Rob

What about treed Cougars?

yea, your right, it would be good for that also  8)

+2 on calling them, maybe they will just send you the spring. I've had a couple of mag springs break, and when I contacted the weatherby service depot here in Canada, they had a new spring in stock, and they just sent it to me. I fixed it myself.

I had my gf copy this from a weatherby catalog, and send it to me last night. Like I said in my previous post, it shows the 6 lug synthetic in 7mm-08 having a #1 contour barrel.  I'm not saying some didn't have the #2 contour barrel, just every 6 lug synthetic or stainless I've seen,had the #1 contour barrel, including the one I own. It also show, your stainless carbine having a #1 contour barrel, just compare them both to if there any size difference in barrels.

not to argue with purplefox66, but I'm pretty sure your Mark V Synthetic 6 lug in 7mm-08 will have a #1 contour barrel, the same as my 240 Synthetic 6 lug. The 6 lug accumark's had the #3 contour barrel, and the 9 lug Synthetic's had the #2 contour barrel(except for the 30-378 and 375 H&H with had #3 contour barrels)

Funny story about that synthetic 30-378, I brought it at a local gun auction for around $600 if I recall correctly, 5-6 years ago, maybe a little longer. It was unfired NIB, but the muzzle break that came with it, has no serial # on it, and it a different color, but it for a 30 cal. Who know's how that happen. I was going to use it for a donor action for a custom built 500A2, so it didn't matter about the different color brake. I put the rifle in the back of one of my safes, until I needed it for the project I was going to do. Plans change, I didn't do the 500A2, and I totally forgot I had that 30-378 in the safe, until last summer, I was looking in that safe for another rifle, and found the 30-378.  ::)   :o  My gf, told me I was likely the only person, that would forget a 30-378  ::) Till this minute, that rifle is still unfired, I haven't decided if I should change out the Tupperware stock for a Bell & Carlson, scope it, and spend the time working up loads for it. I rarely use the other 30-378 I got.
