Here is one by an Aussie named Steve Lee. He has 2 albums out all about guns, hunting etc.

I have been told to have wet towel to lay on the barrel between rounds at match shoots
Of course l haven't been to one yet, but getting advice from those that do

I've done that and it works quite well. Just remember to re oil your rifle afterwoods.

Nice one! Look forward to seeing the euro mount.

I ran three loads over the magneto speed with 200g BT and RL26, 90g 3144, 92g 3212, 94g 3275. The gun did not like ballistic tips or accubonds so I tried the old stand by 210 partition and got a 1/2 inch group with 92g. After the weekend will try 93 and 94g and then try 225 part. and accubonds.

Looks like your on your way to getting her to shoot. Looking forward to the end results.

What next? Heartened by a successful bullying tactic, will vegans hold a "die-in" for beef and have Publix stop selling meat, chicken, pork and fish?

PC is SO nuts!

Damn Straight you got that right! And it's worldwide that's the scary thing.

Yep that's it Rob. The .500 A Square with Weatherby Headstamp would be a great round. I know a bloke here in Aus that has the .500 A2 and loves it.

I have 2 Mark 5 ULW. One a wood blued in 25-06 (my 1st Weatherby I bought 20 years ago and that started my love affair with Weatherbys) and the other a newer synthetic in .240 Wby mag. I love the lightweight rifles and yes one does need to wait for the barrels to cool while shooting as they do tend to heat up rather fast. However the light barrels do not seem to affect accuracy as both my rifles are genuine tack drivers as long as I do my part.

Cleared In Hot!
Please no 460... Ouch
6.5 C ? 300 ?

Why no .460?? There are a lot of people out there that love the .460 and don't find it that hard to shoot. Me for one...
I think with the .505 and .500 being chambered in factory rifles now then Weatherby should bring out another big hitter to compete with them. I know i would grab one lol

Yes I am lucky to have one of those missus's that doesn't care if I buy a new rifle or not. Just as long as she gets to come along when we go to shoot it lol.

Poor little fish, what did he ever do to deserve the name "Crappie"?  ;D

Yep I'd be up for buying a limited edition Weatherby.

I'd also like to see them bring out another big hitter. Something like the .460 Wby necked up to .50 cal. I know it's been done by wildcatters, but a factory round would be great.

It is probably where you left your Weatherby pistol too. ;D

Sweet! It came up real nice.
