I agree with KM, why don't we take a vote to get someone to cancel s1 and his registration. Having been a long time lurker I just find his comments useless and a waste of our time. KM is right, s1 is brainless and does not know when to shut up! I am hear to try and learn.

Re: The .275 Weatherby for LRH?


Never said it was a "BAD" idea.

Just a bit light for me, that's all. I like a larger bullet with a better BC. My ranges are usually much further and I need those features in a bullet.

I guess I shouldn't believe things I hear.
Heard a buck was hit and left alive for quite a while? None of my business how it was killed or even if it was.
That's why I asked about "quick Kills."
Thought maybe the 25 didn't do the job?

Don't really know if it was you guy's but, the word was, a 25 on a bigger case was used?
Thought maybe it could be you since it was in this area. Down 120 at the power line.

If it works for you, it was a great idea and that's all that counts.

Good luck and keep making those quick kills.

Sounds like you have some dandy's coming to experiment with.

Re: The .275 Weatherby for LRH?

See what happens when grown-ups leave the room!! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Here are some facts that we know.....
WE have used two different .257 to kill deer at long range..
1st we built a.25-270 ICL Ram (see P.O.Ackley's book) with a 32" barrel,it shot a 108gr jlk vld at 3730fps....no problem...

2nd we built a .25-.300win 40deg.imp with the shoulder pushed back to a 7mm rem mag lth.(.257 wby imp. basically)with a 32' barrel, it shot 108 jlk vld at 4085fps..

The rifle that I'm building right now is a .25-270 wsm 40deg.imp,it should be able to shoot a 115 berger vld around 3800-3900fps...

The numbers through jbm web site come out like this.....

A 115gr. with a b.c. of .522 shot at 3900fps.,S.H. 1.88",33.3deg.f,
50.%hum.,Bar.Pre.29.5in Hg,Alt.1800
At 1000yds...
Drop.......-14.7 moa
Wind.......5.3 moa
Lead.......5.4 (moving target at 3mph)
Time in flight.....1.08 sec.

Point blank range...
A 20" target can be engaged out to 611yds with a zero of 519yds.. This means you can shoot a 20" target with your rifle sighted in at 519yds out to 611yds.....Not too shabby!!

TO compare....A 300win.shooting a 210gr.berger vld at 2940fps.....
At 1000 yds.
Drop........-25.3 moa
Wind........6.0 moa
Lead........6.9 ( moving target 3mph)
Time in flight 1.376 sec.

D.C.you ask if the deer that we shot this year were Quick Kills......well D.R.T.(from the 5th marines snipers)DEAD RIGHT THERE!!!! got it all on video tape, be more than glad to show you!!!

P.S. JUST BECAUSE ITS NOT YOUR IDEA, THAT DON'T MAKE IT A BAD ONE!!!!!!!! [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
