Weatherby 30-378 with NightForce

Bought a Weatherby 30-378 a few weeks back. I took 3 deer with it, longest one at 325 yards. I LOVE THIS WEAPON, WITH THIS NIGHTFORCE SCOPE. I have many rifles, but I love this one. It has almost NO recoil witht he muzzle brake, and the scope is awesome.

This is a real deer slaying machine, if you have the means, I highly reccommend it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The NightForce 5-22x56 NXS....The new reticles, I believe the NPR-1?

While this is a stock rifle, and not a custom built monster, I have been very happy with it.

As a note, I ended getting the NEAR MFG. base and rings....VERY NICE. Someone on here suggest I give them a try, and I like them, and suggest them to others.

Re: Weatherby 30-378 with NightForce

At $5 a shot, it aint cheap to play with. After 20 rounds to zero it in at 100 yards, I put three shots within an inch, and called it a day.

Shooting 165grain BST, factory ammo.

1. Deer one, was a doe at 100 yards, lung shot, she dropped.

2. Deer two, a doe, 100 yards, neck shot, nearly took her head clean off, no kidding....very nasty.

3. Deer three, my buddy shot a 10 point a 330 yards, shot him in the hip (had to rush shot), blew a hole thru his hips...downed him, and put a finishing shot on him up close.

I say hit anything but the hoof, tail or ear, with this weapon, youll get your animal.

Ill post pics soon.
