.416 400gr solid. Shipping is what ever it is. More boxes cheaper it is.

shut down due to gun sales  "up for discussions" posts.

shot a gen 5 model 19, the gripfor me was great trigger a little better and that is all. But as far as going to a rotateing barrel don't see the need, other then the German police.

If you want to go to canada. The guide i used normal is high 90 to 100% sucess (the ones that don't get a bear can't shoot). He started hunting a new area of his 188,000 acre lease and had 4-5 500+ on trail cam. At least 1 boone and crocket last year.

The blade changing does not bother me, but they are not strong blades but sharp.

Para the outfitters is Trophies Africa. I will check that forum out. My friends dad can answer most questions. He has been a PH for over 25 years and this year will be topping 70 trips to africa. His 6 year old grandson is hunting this year. Hence i have handled his  weatherby's for 40+ years and just bought my mark V dlx last year. He is also the reason for my love of weatherby and swarovski. Had several of his older AV series out side at dusk blew my Leupold away, could not believe the clarity and brightness at dusk. In a store any scope looks good but must be tested outside.

well 1 thing i cant work in the firearms. Opinions are way too strong. Some one would want a lesser cost weapon and i would tell what i think of it. You get what you pay for. Had the guy in the gun library  tell me Weatherby barrels don't get shot out. LMAO friends dad has shot out 2 of his .300's. But yes  he did do major hunting with them also and has the mounts on the wall. With my job of service HVAC/R 2nd job not a chance. I already have a S2 vanguard in .257 but i do want a Mark V w/26 barrel in .257. i can handle not getting that 1 right now. South Africa next year then Newfoundland after i can hold off. After it slows down in the store i will be there once a month tops. Have most of what i need.

Nope closed now till the grand opening on Aug3. I need to stay away, and it is 3 miles from the house and pass it going to work. I also got a case of Fiocchi speed steel 3in #2 for duck hunting. $93 for the case and it was a vortex ranger 1500 range finder.

Did good walked out with no new toys other then a new range finder. The Mark V .257 DLX almost came home. It was new 26in had chips in the stock from the gun library marked at $1100 + 10% off and maybe more discounts. hard to pass up but got trips to pay for.

I work most of the time right by one. still high priced.

On a bear hunt i was one. 1 guy had to do the toilet paper roll trick. His tree stand face the sun and a river below him reflecting up at him. 1st day he had a big one in the bait but he could not see it in the scope, never came back. He shot a smaller one later in the week. He now has bought a sun shade for his scope. He also learned the lesson to make sure you have your trigger lock key with you LMAO.
