My 300 Weatherby Accumark has taken a cow elk at 600 yards that is as far as i have had to shoot so far Was with 180 Grain Nosler Partition flat base bullet. My Weatherby does not like boat tail bullets. I also have one in 25-06 and have taken antelope at 500 yards. Quality gun in my opinion.
Every man needs a good woman, good dog, good horse and a good gun.

Re: 300 weatherby

The 300 wby is my favorite 30 cal, an accumark is nice but the weatherby is at its best handloaded with .060-.085" of freebore in a custom barrel, imo .360" freebore in weatherby rifles is useless. Buy a savage 111 or remington 700 sps and have a custom barrel installed, it cost about the same. Some weatherbys shoot boattail bullets just fine but some will not group the best with boattails and it is because of the excessive freebore, but if you use quality high bc flat base bullets they will outshoot boattail bullets in 99.5% of all rifles, the Ibs 1k world record is now held with a 187 grn handpulled flat base vld from a improved 300wby case.
