Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Re: Some More Game Cam Pics

Here I have several deer back at this location in daytime hours in what seems to be a decent while. Especially with this spot, which is my main "hog" spot, I seem to notice a sharp drop off in deer activity when the pig numbers swell. What are yall's experiences with pigs effecting deer behavior? I've seen it where it doesn't seem to matter at all and they mill about together, and I've seen (more so lately) where the deer seem to scoot off right before a pig comes out. I've also seen some instances, this particular spot included, where long term pig presence seems to greatly diminish the deer activity in the area. The mature boars seem like they definitely run them off more. (SD card 2 of 3)

I just checked my other MarkV's a new 340 Weathermark and a1982 vintage 7mm WBY. and they both have 6 grooves. Maybe someone who knows barrels can chime in and tell us why a 4 groove would shoot slower and more accurate.

Well he must be mistaken or don't know what he is talking about because my MarkV ULW has 6 lands and grooves and no I DID NOT miscount and I marked every one and counted 4 times. So apparently it is just the Vanguards. Mybe someone else with newer MarkV can check theirs.

Rifles / Question for owners with 270 Winchester Weatherby
« Last post by cp506pZ#7 on July 16, 2018, 10:35:26 AM »
I just purchased a new Mark V Deluxe in 270 Winchester caliber.  For those of you that have a Weatherby Mark V in this caliber what ammunition you have found shoots the best in your rifles?

I asked about the Mark V. He said those changed also. I took it that some original barrell were fine, if not great but too many weren't making the cut running up costs. Count the grooves in your bore. Mine is a 4 groove.

Was this rifling groove change just on the Vanguard or o In the MarkV also. I bought a Accumark and a ULW when they first came out and they both shot good with certain loads and at published velocities. My ULW shot a 3 shot 3/4 inch group at 350 yards with my 140g accubond load going 3400 fps., a fourth shot made it a 1 1/4 inch group. I think there are other members who are getting published velocities and good accuracy.
