Safe travels when the time comes. Your moving further away from that black bear hunt you always wanted to do. To bad Roger wasn't still with us, he'd be looking forward to meeting you.

Talk about timming Mike.
I have my 1st varmint leauge shoot of the year this Sunday.
So once A year I clean my target rifle real through.  I used a bronze brush 3 times. Even 1 oversized. Over a 2 day period ran 100 or so soaked patches with BTE. 2 applications of J B bore paste. And still can't get it completely clean.
I never can. Every year I just say good enough for who its for.  We shoot 25 rounds per match. And I shoot 6 of the 7 matches. So about 150 rounds A year.
I almost started my own post on what does it take to get A rifle clean.
We are allowed 5 sighters. I will use 3 of those just to foul and heat up the barrel before my 1st shot for score. That seems to work for this rifle.

Mark if your using a Bronze brush with BTE it will give you a false positive reading, switch to nylon and you'll notice a difference.
Mike I usually do a complete cleaning after a 50-60 rounds or so with my rifles, except for my 223 and 5.56-those I clean at 200 rounds. I can't say I have ever noticed a drop off in accuracy, I just can't stand the thought of a really dirty barrel. I always put a patch with Marvel Mystery oil thru the barrel before I put them away before winter, just because that's what my Dad always did.

Welcome!! And yes some have done that with both good and bad results, but it voids any chance of Weatherby fixing your rifle for free if there is some kind of problem. All my Weatherbys are sub MOA so why take the chance, I just play with the ammo until I find something that rifle likes.

Which One???

Thanks for sharing!!! What a cool video, it brings a person back to better days and much happier times!!!

She got elected because the District she comes from is called little Somalia, I think it is the most densely populated (% wise of them) in our country. Hopefully she doesn't get elected again.

I wouldn't pass on him either, hope he is still around in October. Good luck.

Not only will I not watch the NFL or the NBA, I will not buy anything advertised there. We can hit them right in wallet!

+1, I'm done with both of them!!

Mike I don't think I've ever had a reason to go up in Caliber, about the only reason I can think of would be hunting Grizzly bears. A 257 Roy would not be my first choice for elk, but I see no reason not to use a 6.5-300 Bee or 26 Nosler and I consider the 340 to be the perfect elk round. As far as black bear any whitetail round will do just fine. While one of the Inuit's on FB hunts polar bear with his 6.5-300, that's definitely under gunned if you ask me. Now Africa is a completely different story!!!

Iím still using the factory 127s, I ordered 6 boxes with my rifle when it was announced and will use the brass eventually. I have not tried 8133 either. I would suggest starting with the length of the factory ammo and adjusting from there. If you canít find any when you get to that point PM me and Iíll measure my 127, I know it has been mentioned here in the past.
