Re: 300 Weatherby at 1000yards?
I dont want to ''hi-jack'' this mans post, so Ill be brief. I own a Model 70, Winchester xtr sporter, cahmbered in 300wby mag, factory from Winchester with a 24'' bbl 1;10 twist.
Because of the short''pipe'' and the fact that i handload, my 300wby isnt as fast as what Roy Weatherby intended.IMO. although I dont yet have a chronny to prove just how much slower I am, common sense tells me Im not even close to most wby's, but probably still squeaking past a 300 win. Anyway Im new to handloading, and still following the recipit's out of Hornady's 7th edition trying for accuracy.
My best loads have grouped 5 shots of the same load in anywhere from 3/4'' to 1 1/4'' groups at 100 yds usually I get about 1 1/8''.(my best loads too date) Some of the variation ,Im sure, is all me(the shooter) thus I keep loading and shooting as often as I can to achieve better performance from me and my rifle.
As for ''Special markings on special rifles'' Ive hered of this, but know nothing of its credibility. Neat if its true though.
