Re: Which Weatherby

Hey Freebore,

What is your recipe for your .257wby and what size groups are you getting.
I'm also curious, what optics do you have on your rigs and what is your opinion of them.

Re: Which Weatherby

The .270 Wby is a fantastic caliber and rifle. I recommend
130 grain pointed soft points for medium to large deer. My
accuracy load is 69.8 grains of H4831. My Mk V Delux shoots
3/16 groups; it was accurized by Kleingunther and this is
his old load. He no longer loads ammo for accurizing. I
do not recommend ballistic tips for a .270 because they shoot straight through the deer, do not expand, and come out
the other side the same size as they went in. PSPs often
do not come out and the deer usually drops in its tracks. I
make heart/lung shots and don't shoot through shoulders or
hind quarters.
