Re: Looking at a 300weatherby
I have been shooting the 300Wby for a couple years now. Thanks to a buddy who is going on 20 years of shooting one. I have grown very fond of it. My current one is in an Accumark with an Accubrake on it. With 180 Partitions at 3300 it is almost recoiless. With 200 grain Accubonds at 3100 it jumps around a little but not a big kicker by any means. I had the Accubonds up to 3150 but started getting extractor marks on hot days. The 300Wby needs a 26" barrel to burn the IMR-7828 properly and just gets better the longer you make the barrel.
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.
Only accurate rifles are interesting.
