Hello to The Weatherby Nation

Hello to The Weatherby Nation
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:47:58 AM »
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am new here to the Nation but not new to Weatherby. I just wanted to say Hello and look forward to reading and learning all I can about the greatest rifle and calibers ever invented!! Bought my first .257 over 25 years ago (a Japan model with a 24" barrel) and been carrying some kind of Weatherby ever since.  I won't lie I have a prefrence for the .300.  I bought my first .300 not long after getting my .257, A German Southgate with a 24 inch barrel.  Didn't shoot that great but never let me down and started a love relationship that still burns bright today. I have owned and shot several different calibers through the years. 240, 257, 270, 300 , 340, 378 and a 460.  Always seem to come back to the .300 for everything.  Just bought my first 7mm from a Nation member here and looking forward to playing with it.  Anyway just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. 

Regards,
Elvis300 (Gary)
And on the 8th Day God created the .300 Weatherby and God saw the .300 Weatherby was good, and God divided the .300 Weatherby from the rest.

Welcome aboard! Sounds like you caught the WBY bug some time ago. Where to you find yourself deploying the Weatherbys these days and what kind of critters do you get after?

Welcome Gary. This is a friendly forum and a lot of good experience and knowledge is at your disposal on the nation. Pull up a seat and make yourself at home! What state or country are you located in?
Some like cologne, I like the smell of gunpowder.
