Re: McWhorter Rifles

I purchased a McWhorter rifle a month ago, and boy does it shoot! I topped it with a Zeiss Victory with the Rapid-Z reticle.

It think they have a 1/2 MOA guarantee. That suits me just fine.

One day Jim Borden and McWhorter will build me a rifle. I just have to decide what. For Borden, it will likely be a 300 WSM because he likes that caliber so much.

McWhorter and Rovig seem to like the Weatherbys, the 270, 6.5 (270 necked down), and the 7mm.

I'm just not sure I want the brass Weatherby shape on the shoulder. Have no experience with it.

Mine is chambered for 300 WBY. Weatherby's are not any more difficult to reload for than anything else.

Re: McWhorter Rifles

Well that is good to know.

Just curious why you would opt for a Weatherby over a non-belted RUM? And, is it a good idea to neck size only the Weatherby cases?

I guess I'm just a Weatherby nut, its been one of my alltime favorite calibers. I always FL size without problems.
