And while we're on the subject, I've spent the last four years studying human nature and psychology. Reading the books is like going to lectures in college, but this forum is the best lab for actually watching human nature in action than any other place I can imagine.

One reason is that people will say things on the internet that they will never say to your face. The internet will also put groups of people together that outside of one tiny common interest have nothing else in common.

I typically don't hang with anyone that would bash another person's stuff. Life is too short to be bothered with people who are missing chromosomes, which impact the ability of their brain to keep up with their mouth. However online I often find myself with these exact "hater/jealous types". So I have learned if you put it out there for commment, be careful you just may get what you wished for.

Whatever you do, do not put a Leupold on an Ithaca Deerslayer. Parts of NY are shotgun and my Deerslayer might as well be a "scope slayer". Two Leupolds, a Simmons and a Zeiss Conquest all went back to the factory for rehab after shooting 385 gr. slugs at 1900 fps. Nikon Slug Hunter seems to be holding up.

Not really. My Grandpa put that Leupold on that .30-06. He just passed it on to me a few years ago.

Quoting you now per letter....."But if the are hit will they rise form the dead too?".....Unquote......."The are hit?" and "form the dead?" laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh

Here`s the correct way to type what you wanted to type.

"But if THEY are hit (a comma should go right here btw), will they rise FROM the dead too?

Wow, you and bigsqueeze , found two guys who like Weatherbys?
On this site, and http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=657592
...they HATE the Weatherby MK5, well my post here & there was for choosing a DG rifles, the Weatherby being one of 4, ( others CZ Safari Classic, Sako 85 Kodiak & McMillan Prestige ).
They say PHs in Africa loath Weatherbys and they fail miserably when stressed and mildly tossed around, they are only good for the range?
ONLY CRF is suitable for a DGR, not the cheap inferior PF of a Weatherby or Remington ???

.....They say PHs in Africa loath Weatherbys? And who might they be?

And under "what type of stress" exactly do Weatherby rifles fail miserably? And exactly under what type of "mildly tossing around" do they fail?

A Weatherby fail miserably while under stress and after being mildly tossed around?....Yeah! Sure!

Yeah! Maybe if operated by a complete and total incompetent moron.

Haven`t been to Africa,,,yet. But I wouldn`t hesitate using my Accumark under any condition or on any animal where the 338 caliber is legal.

Just read that highroad.org site. I do read where some have preferences for the CRFs, while others use, don`t mind using, and have not had any issues with their Bee push feeds.

Unless I missed something, there were no descriptions offered on that thread as to what type of stresses or under what types of being tossed around the Weatherbys fail.

If an African PH ever tells me someday that he won`t accept anyone using an Accumark, then I use another PH.

I've heard plenty of African PH's say they don't have any time for Weatherby's. It's generally always the cartridges though and not the guns. And that's generally because a lot of guys run the wrong bullets. You need a pretty stout 180 to hold together for a 50 yard shoulder shot with a .300 Bee. A 200 is a much better choice.

Wow, that's bad. I use cheap Bushnells and have never had a failure in my slug guns. I did have a cheap Simmons get the reticle rearranged by heavy turkey loads. Maybe I'm just lucky.

...........Oh good! I was really worried there! Not the fault of the round, the Wby rifles, but instead the bullet selection.

Too light a bullet moving too fast upon impact because it is fired from a much shorter range can cause some "holding together" problems.
