Why do people ask directions if they already know where they are going?

some times people know where they are going, but lack the confidence or knowledge to get them there;and rely on others to convince them of it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    That is true. But when everyone says south is the wrong way wouldn't you go a different direction?

    Funny thing was that the 300WM was fine for his needs all along and certainly better that the 257 wby.

    .270 Winchester or .257 Weatherby. Any observations on these choices?

    I doubt that you will see acceptable 600 yard accuracy from your choice? The problem with all Weatherby's is freebore, in a factory rifle.

    Good hunting. LB

    I appreciate John M. point of view, but I had not madeup my mind when I originally posted the question. I also understand the some (maybe most) would not agree with my purchase of a .257 Wby (though RBrowning may). What have the responses contributed? Well I am looking a ways to improve my 300 Win. Mag. to make it a decent long range gun. I will give more attention to wildcat options; thanks Fiftydriver for your kind responses. I have always been a factory type of guy, but it seems I maybe missing some the most interest aspects of hunting. The .257 Wby may become my mid-range deer rifle;I will give it a try to see what it is able to do. Thanks again everyone. I am sorry for upsetting anyone.

    Paulinus, I don't think anyone is upset. I'm just a ballbreaker at times.

    Although I don't think the 257 wby is a good choice for 600yrd deer. I think for 300 and under it will be fine.

    As far as wildcats calibers go, I would avoid them if I were you since you are pretty much a factory guy. Black Hills has good factory ammo thats a step above department store ammo. black-hills.com is the website. Get a nice krieger or lilja for that 300wm and some good 180 or 200 grain ammo and you've got it covered. You may even consider going with a 7stw or some other caliber.
