Re: The .275 Weatherby for LRH?
Toss S1 aside and I think we all lose something valuable.
He and I disagree on numerous topics, however, his input has value to me and must be considered given his background and experience.

I am.... especially given the Weatherby velocitiy of 3400 fps with the heavy-for-calibre pill. It's not something I would try with my 25/06, but this is also due to my not having the necessary skill at that range yet. The prairie dogs of Wyoming will attest to the fact that I'm workin' on it though! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Whatever range I am able to take prairie dogs with 90% consistency on the first shot is my working distance for the game season.
I keep a logbook when varmint shooting for my TRR, (Tactical Rat Rifle), and this insures my efficacy. I'm really looking forward to my goal of a first shot 1K prairie dog. I may have it mounted [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I've actually enjoyed this thread as there are few that deal with the 25 calibre.
Thanks to all.
