Re: McWhorter Rifles 6.5 Wby Mag.!!

All right. Starting over. I posted this to simply make people aware of this caliber that Tim developed. I never stated that it was the best thing since animal crackers. I never stated that is was far superior to any other caliber. All Smiths have their pets. The .257 - 7mm WBY cases just happen to be Tim's. He has his reamer right. Load development is a cinch. The cases feed well, etc.... I asked Tim many of the same questions that were brought up in this thread. I talked to him on Friday and asked "Why not the 264 win mag?" He said he has built many and they shoot well but not as well as many of the rifles he has built on the wby case. I have a McWhorter 300ultra, 300wsm, and 270wby. All of them shoot 1/4" groups if I do my part. If someone is in the market for a fast .264 they should consider it. That's all.

Re: McWhorter Rifles 6.5 Wby Mag.!!

I have shot the 257, 270 and 7mm wby's for many years and they all shoot very well so I am sure the 264 would also shoot just as well. When I worked with the 264 wildcat off a wby case I did the 300 wby case so I wasn't duplicating the 264 winchester that I also have. If your looking for a fast and fun to shoot 264 off a wby case the 300 would be the one or off the STW case. Both are about the same. Very fast and my personal favorites for long range deer and antelope. When you get a .571 BC bullet over 3500 fps it is quite amazing shooting antelope on the windy prarie. That 264 STW is an extremely accurate long range rifle.

Re: McWhorter Rifles 6.5 Wby Mag.!!

many that buy a 4k dollar rifle are not concerned about an extra 75cents to a dollar a round.

And many that toss 4 G's in the wind are hung up on a name and a good marketer also.
Kind Regards
