Not very pleasing to the eye.  ::) :o

Rifles / Re: Japan made 378 magnaport barrel
« on: Yesterday at 07:28:46 AM »
I happened to come across a Wby MK V Deluxe in 378 mag that had a 26" barrel with a factory Pendleton brake.( serial number was P27977 ) I was wondering if the Japan made 378 Wby you're asking about has a factory Pendleton brake, or if Mag-na Port did the work aftermarket. Is there any value in one over the other? I would assume that both the Pendleton and Mag-na Port brakes essentially do the same thing as far as being muzzle jump stoppers, (as Tom called them) but not much for the recoil effect? The 460 Wby made in Germany also had the Pendleton factory brake.(don't know how long Weatherby used the Pendleton)

Sounds like a great set up. How about some pictures when you have time? Congratulations!

Well Sir, My thoughts are that if he shoots his dads 35 and 9.3 he's well accustomed to rifles that pack a bit of a wallop, he may appreciate a caliber that is similar to his dads. The Mark V in 300 Weatherby is a great all-round rifle, and would feel right at home on an exotic hunt, a plains game hunt in Africa, or a whitetail hunt in Texas. You just can't go wrong getting your grandson a MK. V in 300 Weatherby. (wood, or synthetic) Good Luck

Here's a video interview with Travis Kaufman the victim of the lion attack in Colorado. I would say fast forward to about the 18 minute part of the video for the attack story.

Like the Duke said in the movie Hondo, "A man outta do what he thinks is best."

The problem is land development keeps expanding and encroaching on land that once belonged exclusively to wildlife, but thats been happening since the landing of the Mayflower.

Maybe there should be a coyote trafficker derby? ;D ;D ;D

Simply put, this guys views on unnecessary rifle calibers are Idiotic. He's an embarrassment to all hunters and the hunting community. Everyone understands that there is an abundance of overlap in standard calibers, and his argument may as well be, why use a 30-06 when a 25-06 will do the same job. It won't "Hurt" as much and the animal won't know the difference. More than a Weatherby heater, he's a MORON!

Another situation where urbanites are the minority and they win anyway.  ::) ???

Just what we need, another tool that makes it easier for inexperienced hunters/shooters(who can afford it) to try long distance shots on game they have no business attempting. Seems like the more technology thats added, the more diminished the definition of hunting becomes. This technology could reduce the number of wounded animals in the woods, but in a way, its still like using a scope with a duplex reticle, in that you could still get buck fever and move at the last minute, jerk the trigger, or input  the wrong information. How many bow hunters have ranged the correct distance to a deer, and then used the wrong pin on release? In the Research and Education section of the link it says,"Meanwhile, we work hard to learn what YOU want in sporting optics." Seems they're leaning towards the the long range hunting TV shows that make it look like anyone can do it. Maybe its just my mossback opinion?

DW, Maybe your groups are opening up due to the barrel warming up? I couldn't find the actual contour number for the barrel , except that it was a light hunting contour. If its a #1 contour, by the time you get off your 3rd shot it may be hot enough to slightly touch one side of the rifle channel and throw your group open. How many rounds did you end up shooting today? Wouldn't hurt to try a different brand of ammo and just continue the same regimen of shooting and cleaning, and it may clear itself up.

Juan, Excellent handcrafted work. I love the detail in the horse and rider on the rifle case. Gaucho :)? The holsters look very sturdy and they are well finished.  Kudos
