Re: 300 Weatherby Accumark

I have a 300 Weatherby accumark with a Swarovski BR scope and accuracy is outstanding (less than half minute of angle) Shot two whitetails this past year at 510 yards using 165 gr Hornady and hot load. As always the important things for accuracy are there to include an excellent crisp and light trigger, careful, scope mounting without cant and windage adjustments with the rear mount screw (Leupold) before fine tuning with scope adjustment. The less correction with the scope dial the better as all reticles "like" the center as close to factory setting as possible. If good scope mounting techniques are used with careful bore sighting (mine done visually by eyeing the bore and moving scope (not the crosswire) to as close to center of bore as possible) very few shots needed. Mine zero'd in 3 shots. At the first shot--don't move the rifle from the bullseye. If shot is 1 inch and high and two inches right for example--move the crosshair to the bullet hole. Then put crosswire on bull and you'll be real real close!
