Rifles / Re: Japan made 378 magnaport barrel

It'll make your 378 even louder!

I'm no longer a brake fan of any kind.

depending how long the barrel is, you could possibly cut it down, and remove the mag.na.port

I would bet going from 26 to 24in would do no harm in the 378.

I would think those 265 Accubond would be a sweet setup.

maybe not the highest BC, but I had some 275gr Swift A-Frames, loaded for my .340wby

also maybe try that 300 Accubond.

Doesn't the fibermark stock have an aluminum structure in the stock already?

maybe I'm confused or we're talking about 2 different stocks,

Rifles / Re: 340 Wby brass question
« on: Today at 12:32:11 PM »
well, in my neck of the woods, new Weatherby 340 brass sells for > $2ea USD.  i picked up 100 once fired 300 Wby cases (mixed Wby and R-P) for $25 USD total.  seemed like a reasonable path to pursue with upcoming load development in mind.  we shall see about the wisdom of this decision as i work through the various loads.

by the way, the gift box of bullets was some Hornady 270gr. ELD-X.  anyone have a chance yet to try these out of the 340?  if so, results?

thanks all for your support and guidance,

I was gonna suggest the same thing!

Bushnell 4500 4-16x
Bushnell 6500 2.5-16x
with DOA600/800 reticle!

Hard to go wrong with the .300 Wby!

I also like Leupold VX3 and Zeiss Conquest

So many options, Weatherby does chamber non-wby cartridges too, options!
such as 7mm Rem.Mag. 270win, 30-06, 300 Win.Mag.

As for a Wby cartridge in a MKV...,
257 Wby.
6.5-300 Wby.
340 Wby.
Would be my top picks for a Lifetime Rifle!

Rifles / Re: Long or Short action question
« on: February 11, 2019, 03:03:30 PM »
I'm not sure about the vanguard models...

but my MKV in .243win is a built on a long action.

I would prefer a short action cartridge to be built on a short action, oh well.



I've been considering one of them in .300 wsm myself!

Still haven't figured out why other companies can offer synthetics as nice as weatherby does...? licensing agreements or something?

Montana Rifles will chamber any Weatherby for you I believe.
 ER shaw rifles...

not too many others out there that I know of, at least not as a standard.

Remington at least use to do the .257wby,

I think sako at one time had a 300 and 340wby.

I keep wondering why it seems no major rifle company offers a,  you choose it how you want it, and we build it option?

you pick the standard rifle package they already offer, ie, the ULW, the accumark, and so on...

and you could pick the barrel length and contour...

also the cartridge,

I see it all the time... love the rifle, but I want 24" barrel instead of 26", or I want the 243win with a 24" barrel, not a 22"

also I'd rather have say a #3 contour 24" barrel than a 26" #2 contour of the same weight...

Just seems to me, would be easy for a company to accomplish... without charging a full custom rifle price.

essentially mostly what I personally am asking for a is a choose the exact barrel you want... contour, length, cartridge, twist rate.

Would be awesome!

wink wink Weatherby...

200yard zero.

Elk / Re: need an opinion on best .300 wby bullets for elk
« on: February 03, 2019, 11:04:54 AM »
I'd want the 180gr TTSX or Accubond probably, or maybe even the 200gr Partition

The 338 option is interesting.  Was wondering if a 338-378 is overkill?  Maybe a 300 grain with a 215+ bullet. Agree with the thought of heavy and higher BC given potential conditions.

IMO the .340wby > 338-378wby

I think the .340 Wby. w/ 265gr would be pretty sweet.

Jarrett I believe has a rifle/cartridge suggestion for those type hunts...

I believe he though the 338 type magnums were where it was at for ideal.

big heavy high BC, long range, plenty of energy at 600+ yards.

Probably a heavy 7mm bullet, or .338

checkout jarrett's pet cartridges, I believe he says something about that on his site somewhere.

good luck!
