This question was my first post on this forum
Here is the thread and here is what the guy said after he bought the gun.

Back to the .300Wby. I started testing the .300Wby and with factory 165gr ammo it shot 1.5 groups at 100yds. Just within the guarantee. I tried some hand loads next. I finally settled on MRP-84.5gr with 200gr Nosler Accubonds. This gave me .875 3 shot groups @ 100yds. Not the tightest but it should hit the kill zone on any elk. I tried 180gr bullets of various makes and it definately likes the 200gr bullets better. Each barrel has its own frequency, so they won't all shoot the same.
I shoot from a home made gun vise that takes the recoil of the rifle off my shoulder. I do this to take myself out of the accuracey equation.
Just for kicks I shot it out of the vise, on my shoulder. I wasn't sure how hard it would kick so I held on tight. At the shot, the scope came up and touched my eyebrow. It didn't hit but just made contact. Man this thing kicks so much harder than my .257wby or my .270wby. I should have got the Accumark. Oh well, now I am looking to put a muzzle brake on it. I feel I need it to be able to shoot it comfortably. Normally when I shoot, I use a rest and hold the rifle very lightly and just let it surprise me as I gently squeeze the trigger. The surprise factor with this rifle is great. It surprises the hell out of me every time. I decided on having the SG&Y 11 deg. brake put on. It is supposed to reduce recoil by 60-65% and the muzzle blast is angled slightly forward to save your eardrums.
