First off let me say hello as I am a new user here. Lots of good info out there ,however im looking for some info on the above mentioned rifle. Ive been on the fence for the last 2 months about getting a .223 in varmint barrel and finally a weatherby has popped up for a reasonable 600 canadian pesos.
Barrel is a 1/9 twist so i think it will cover an array of ammo including bulk crap i plan on shooting alot.
Whats your luck with accuracy out of them? Whats best ammo youve shot etc..

Thanks for the help

It depends on the rifle but that twist is not conducive to the bulk ammo out there IMO for varmints.I passed on one recently for that reason.

Thats interesting Terminator, as almost everything I read, people favor a 1/9 over the 1/12.
Heres hoping to hear from someone with this rifle to add some input

.257
