    Hello there, I'm new to the Bolt Action pistol game. I purchased a Weatherby Mark V CFP in .243 Win, & mounted a Bushnell 2-6 x 28 ELR scope on it, about two months ago. So far i've had relatively good luck with it, shooting groups around the 1" mark @ 100 yds, with 55- 60 gr bullets of various makes. Does anyone have any advise to lend ? On loads or bullets. gun)Or even experience with other CFP's ?

    I don't have a 243 or a Weatherby SP, but I just want to welcome you to LRH and to the specialty pistol world.

    Welcome to LRH.
    Sounds like you are ready for some fun times. I've never shot a Weatherby SP but have looked at some at a local gun shop, very nice looking rigs.

    Welcome

    I owned one for a brief time in .223
    Best I could do with it was just around .75 inch @ 100yrds.
    The trigger was a bit heavy, so bought a spring and replaced it. I think it was made by Jarvis (?) not sure. It worked though.
    Good luck with it.
