Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Re: My Conversion to Weatherby
« Last post by catskinner on Yesterday at 09:38:47 PM »
I used to think a vanguard wasn,t a real weatherby until i shot one. They are just so dam accurate out of the box. And they are so well made. I now prefer a vanguard over a mark v because you can get a 26" barrel.

I still think, they are not a real Weatherby, don't get me wrong, the couple that I have are good shooter's. But I'm not the biggest fan of them. Everyone has their own different likes though.

I guess my wife 357 lever gun isn't game legal anymore.
 Talked to a wildlife federation member this morning, said they did a survey of states that allow different calibers for different species. The allowed the 20 calibers but forgot to differentiate species.

Typical government

I'm guessing you have a Japanese-manufactured Mark V, and on the barrel, it's stamped "7mm Magnum," correct? If so, that's a 7mmWby. At the time, Weatherby didn't chamber the 7mmRemMag, despite starting to do so later in production. And when that occurred, the standings were changed to "7mm Weatherby" or "300 Weatherby," or so forth.

Does it have a stamp on the barrel or action?

Great choice the .243 shoots flat and accurate. Very mild recoil and you can drive tacks itís it.
Excellent Grampa.  :o

I have plenty of very nice rifles, but they donít get out much. I like the Vanguard because it is a good quality field rifle. Iíve often mentioned that my rifle that gets the most use is a Weatherby Vanguard S2 300 Win Mag.

Donít dismiss Howa rifles...they are good quality rifles as well...I have 3 Howa rifles.

I was given a rifle from a distant family members wife. She has no idea hat chambering the rifle is or any old ammunition. It is a Weatherby 7 mm Magnum. The rifle was available in either Weatherby Mag or Remington Mag.
The Weatherby Mag is 2.218 from base to the top of double radius, the Remington Mag is 2.228 to the top of shoulder.
How can you determine which cartridge is correct?

Iím confused here guys!

The .243 is a rifle. It will kill and do it promptly. Easy and inexpensive to shoot. I gave my neighbor one that I put a pink Boyd's At-One stock on. She loves it. That on has a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x42 on it.
