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.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><HR> originally posted by S1: Careful Holmes, you are'nt implying that a .257 might actually kill something past 700 yards are you? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

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.

Re: The .275 Weatherby for LRH?

Now are you two boys done cyber boxing? Just kidding, I very much enjoy the information both DC and S1 share. I'm savvy enough to discern what I need to know and ignore that which does not pertain to my question. Both poster's have a great deal of knowledge and plenty to share. I hold no malace against either one. While they do take a few jabs at each other, it's certainly a long ways from how down and dirty things get on other boards....which I do appreciate. Thank you to everyone who has posted thus far and please feel free to continue as I have very much enjoyed reading what other have had to say. Btw S1, I sent you an email in reply to the NAM painting. Never heard back from you did you decide either way? If it would just be easier for me to send cash I can do that too. Darryl just out of curiousity did you end up hanging on to that 300 Weatherby? If so how did it end up shooting?

As a self proclaimed long range "Newbie" I have learned from both DC and S1. I respect both of your backgrounds and knowledge, but please try to argue based on facts or opinions. Ease up on the personal attacks - BOTH OF YOU. If you were my kids I would knock heads, send you both to your rooms and come back when your ready to be civil [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

This forum would greatly miss the information presented by BOTH of you.

Big Sky

I sold the 300 Weatherby but before it left for it's new owner he asked if it could be taken on out to a 300 Tomahawk. It left here as a Tomahawk and it shoots VERY well.
Ask Chris Jamison and Jake.


You just don't know "How" hard this German head is.

The info from DC and S1 is very valuable. Just wish when you guys but heads you wouldn't hit so hard. Info without all the BS carries more weight.
