First of all, I couldn't get to the topic, "Ask John about the 300 Weatherby" so am making this one. Finally someone has rediscovered the 300 WBY! Thank you Mr. Barsness. I must say I have never owned one, but have shot a few in the Mark V and Vangard, and also in a Winchester Classic. The Weatherby's have all been as accurate as John has said and IMO easy to shoot. I was actually surprised by the lack of recoil. The Winchester was borrowed to shoot a mule deer at approximately 200 yards in a high wind situation. Thanks again

I own a 300 Wby barrel for my Encore. As you say it is very easy to shoot. It is highly accurate and not many critters escape its terminal knock-out punch. With its very effective muzzle brake it is like shooting a 7mm-08.

I truely have fallen in love withmy Vanguard 300 Wthby. A 200 grain bullet at over 3000 fps is an amazing hunting tool.

In my opinion, the .300 Weatherby cannot be beat.

Mine delivers 4000 foot pounds, has a point blank range of 300 yards with 180 grain Partitions, holds four rounds, shoots to 1.0 MOA, and weighs only 6 3/4 pounds plus scope and sling.

Nothing else--not a RUM, a .338, a WSM, or whatever--can do all that.

Recoil is acceptable if you work with it. I do not use muzzle brakes. My last eleven kills have each been 1-shot kills, ranging from 150 pound Impala to a 5000 pound Hippo (yes, the latter had been wounded with a .458, but died with the first Wby. shot).

I would not hesitate to use this rifle on Alaska Brown Bear with appropriate loads, or on African Cape Buffalo if it were legal.

Rick:

Thanks to both you and JB for this monthly column. It's great.

Just curious, and I have no complaints, but how come it's not on the home page with the other pieces? Or is this a new thing you're trying out? Or have you just given up on the regulars ever seeing the home page after having bookmarked the forum pages? \:\)

We're working on a new set of articles for the Home Page. We're evolving the system and working on various options.
