Re: The .275 Weatherby for LRH?
6.5.. you missed the point of the person who started this thread, and his question was directed at the capabilities of the .257 for Mulies and smaller. Your bud DC told him not past 700, that is bull$h_t.
There are several example of bullets that will bring over 900 ft. lbs. of energy to 1,000 yards, and anyone who does not think that 900 ft. lbs. will do the job effectively on a deer is either in denial, or on crack. By your logic a 6.5 is not acceptable because there are 30 cals, and a 30 is not acceptable because ther are 50 BMG's around, certainly more optimal than a 30 for killing at 1,000 yards. Why not just drop a MOAB on his horns and get it over with? How dead is Dead? If 900 ft. lbs. is not enough to kill a deer efficiently, then you and DC have a huge number of Brown Bear guides to email before they get their customers or themselves killed!
