Just got back from our annual black bear hunt and harvested a nice 2 year old. The weather was terrible with rain and high winds for the first three days but on the last night we finally got a break in the weather and one of our younger members harvested his first black bear estimated at 150 lbs. All in all another great hunt at Burks Falls with some awesome shore lunches


257 & DW;

I wouldn't expect less, I've been dealing with this close to a year now.  The funny thing is that this buck was bigger than some of the 7 & 8 points that were being delivered at the butcher shop.   ;D

In all seriousness, we think this deer was not going to be anything, and my friend was happy I took him our of the breeding pool.  He did remind me today.  >:(
Reloading / Looking for Reloder 26 Load Data for 300 Wby Magnum.
« Last post by Rob41256 on Today at 01:07:08 PM »
Hey folks,

Anyone have load data for Hornady ELDX (178 or 200 gr) and/ or Nosler 180 AB bullets and Reloder 26 powder?  I found some on the Alliant site for the Barnes bullets but not the ones listed above. 


I appreciate the feedback and will use it wisely. By chance I did locate i think the last 2.lbs of MRP in the Midwest.  I am anxious to compare with the RL25 and IMR7828.  I will post results in the reloading section later this week.

Bud, T
Welcome to the nation! Have you tried different weight bullets?  I would try it without the brake, too. Good luck with it!   :)
Love my Weatherbys, but recently purchased a .300 in the ultra lite, an older model from 2000 with an accubrake. Doing everything correctly using Weatherby ammo and it has groups no better than  1 1/4 inches? According to Weatherby this series of rifles only come with a 1 1/2 inch group Guarantee? Anybody ever take the time and money to dial one in or change its zip. Ode?

I think I'm going to put it on my 300Win. since it's a rifle scope and not a pistol scope it should stand up to the recoil.
I can't imagine Burris making a rifle scope that won't take some punishment and the erector has double springs in it to help with that.
Granted it's not a S&B, Swaro, Lieca or other big name high dollar scope but even Leupolds break.
I will find out what it's made of.
I've seen this data a long time ago also, and I got it again from Grizzly340 a few years ago. Grizz is right some of that data is quite hot, so be careful using it. I've tied a few of the MRP loads and they were alright. I find MRP very similar to RL22.
