Rifles / I dont understand the 307. Why?
« on: January 06, 2024, 04:35:51 AM »
I dont get why they made this it's just a 700 action why not use a mark v action? Your weatherby not remington if people want a 700 action why not buy the remington for a cheaper price. It's the same price as a mark v for a complete rifle. It could just be me but it doesn't make sense. Plus the Mark v is the smoothest action I've ever felt.

22lr would be my ruger 10/22 and may 22mag is an ar and shoots moa I love that 22mag I have one in 17hmr also and that's very accurate.

I'd like to know how fast a 27x300wby would go it would definitely be the fastest 277 caliber.

I've noticed that weatherby rifles like my 270wby 340wby and 300wby they like 2 things being shot and they like to be dirty. When I got all my rifles I had the same thing. They shot about 1.2 or 1.5 inch groups but after a range trip or two and just running a dry patch through it they went to a 3/4 to 1in group.

I was a NRA member for years but when I noticed years ago they just talked about helping the gun community but not doing it I made a switch to GOA cause I saw them in court battles every couple weeks.

 I miss the days of weatherby using the shoulder and belt. If you guys could make a new weatherby cartridge what would it be? I would make a 27x300 weatherby with a faster twist barrel so you could shoot a 170gr .277 going real fast. I'm excited to see what you come up with.

I have a 270wby in the accumark and I love that gun I'm shooting a 140gr and it's shooting well with those. I did just order 130gr for coyotes so we shall see how they shoot.

I load for three 270 wby's, and never had a lot of good results with getting the 140's to shoot in mine. With 130's the first powder to try is 7828ssc, and with 150's try RL25 frist. I have pretty much settled on the 130's for 270 Wby, with a modern stout made 130 gr bullet @ 3500fps, I have no problem using them to take game including moose and elk at reasonable hunt distances.


 thank you sir if I can find powder I sure will try them out. I like the 140s cause it's the best of both worlds of speed and weight. But if the 130s are better then that is what I'll shoot.

I'm a groundhog hunter. It's something I love to do it's great practice and I get to help land owners out. I had a farm I hunted hogs on for years but then it was sold and I was told by the new owners I wasn't welcome back. I must have killed damn near 100 hogs over the years farthest shot was 311 yards all with a 17wsm. Well I did stalk one and got it with a shotgun.

Well thank you maybe I'll have to go with a lower grain but I do love a heavy bullet

Reloading / 340wby needs help
« on: January 15, 2022, 08:59:33 AM »
Is anyone getting or exceeding factory velocity with a 250gr. Cause looking at load data nothing comes near the factory loads that I can find. The numbers in the books are just about a 338win and if that's the case I should have went with that over the 340wby. Any tips or load data would be appreciated.

Rifles / 2nd Mark V

Well guys I just bought my second Mark V. I got it in 270wby and I'm excited to see what it can do. I sold 2 vanguards in 270win and 300wby to get this gun. It's and accumark just like my 340wby. I'm putting a burris veracity 3x15 on it. Can't find ammo but have found brass and ordered dies for it. If anyone has this what's your load data if you don't mind helping out.

I bought 6 boxes of ammo I got 250gr 200gr and 210gr and so far it likes them all. I wanna try 225gr but I think im sticking with the 250gr I like a heavy bullet. I have a vanguard in 300wby and I don't know how much trigger time that gun will get now that I have a 340wby.
