"While I'm on the subject,I think I'd like to point out the advantages of Jorge's rifle and scope.

It is very light,well under 7 pounds scoped. In spite of the light weight,recoil will be very mild,less than a 270 for sure.

Despite the light weight and low recoil,this thing has a very flat point and shoot trajectory. Sight it in at 250 yards and forget it,just hold center of vitals from point blank to 350 yards. This trajectory allows you to take 99.9 % of the shots in the country where we hunt quickly. No need for rangefinders,christmas tree reticles that fade in low light,or dials that have to be turned.

Furthermore,the Partition is a perfect bullet for such endeavors because it will work on a little deer or a huge wild boar,and it will always expand violently for quick kills. It will almost always exit and leave a blood trail as well.

I can't think of another factory rifle that will offer exactly what this rig does. Maybe a Kimber in 25-06 comes close but the 100 grain 6mm bullet has better ballistics than the 100 grain in .257."

Rural Doc; what a well phrased, well thought out and eloquent comment.

All the best.

Fhuqking HILARIOUS Dumbfhuqktitude,extolled obliviously...by Couchbound Kchunts doing their BEST. Laffin'!

Hunnert NPT at 3400fps ala Whore Hey! Japperby. Hint.

A "lowly" Seex Kreedmire and a 108 ELD M(pardon my only having 3 rifles,so chambered). Pardon the NEARLY full ONE inch of trajectory "difference",at the "vaunted" 350yd line,by Plentyofcocs. I'm not even gonna mention BC or wind,a short action,or farrrrrrr less powder consumption,let alone vastly SUPERIOR brass and the Accuracy/Precision advantage,conjoined with much lesser ES/SD values or FUN. Hint. Laffin'

Prolly toted a Six Twat-Six a smidge today...though I'd not wanna knock any of the SWEET "Satisfactions" offa Whore Hey's! Japperby and The BIG "ADVENTURE",of it being schlepped from her Soccer Mom Bitch Mobile,to her fhuqking couch. If only because that's ALL "The Outdoors" it will ever fhuqking "experience"! LAFFIN'!

Perhaps you Do NOTHING Kchunts can "convince" yourselves,that Montucky's are "heavy" and there are Blued/Walnut "advantages",along with Retard Twist Rates and Dog Schit Boolits...not to mention scopes that track,hold zero,return to same,have a reticle that'll "only" reach the 1300yd+++ line and bolster a VASTLY superior mounting system to boot?!? You know,if only for fhuqking Starters. Laffin'!

So as to avoid confusion,for you fhuqking Drooling DUMB Fhuqks. hInt.

105 Hornie HPBT's at 3375fps(da' 8" Brux ain't anywhere NEAR 26 STUPID Fhuqking inches in length). Hint.

The ONLY thing you Whining Kchunts "shoot",is your mouths and Imaginations. Pardon Reality yet again colliding with your Fantasy,as I simply shoot it all and then some,so am afforded the luxury,of not being forced to guess. Hint. Laffin'!

Pluralcoc's sage "wisdom",was simply fhuqking HILARIOUS! Points awarded,for another Drooler "endorsing" same,as you gal's version of "knowledge","experience" and "results",is never not Fhuqking HILARIOUS +P+!!! Laffin'!

GREAT Time for you "Hard Chargers" to "quantify" your Imaginary Pretend Ignore,by reiterating that besides being CLUELESS Fhuqks,you are also Lying Pieces Of Fhuqking Schit! You go girl!!!

Trajectory is Physics...wind is Vudoo(pun intended,because I have a Brace) and them who only "shoot" their mouths and Imaginations,will hurriedly align to corroborate same(obliviously). Hint.

Awful lotta typing and masturbation to justify a 3 inch difference in drop at 700 yards and to extol the virtues of Kimber's stubby little PVC deckpost.

I think ol' Boxer must've given up on the 243. He's always talkin' this "Seex Kreedmire" up now. I'll Stick (no pun intended) by the now uncool 243 Winchester myself.

What does "japperby" mean I wonder. Maybe " Boxer" that I'm sure his only "boxing" had to do with a losing effort whilst trying to punch out of a wet paper bag) will splain the meaning of this term or maybe his husband/father/gnome of the year sockpuppet "Big (pardon me whilst I snicker at "big" anything with this midget) Stick will chime in. And OH! I forgot to add, just received a birthday present from my buddy Pugs consisting of Peterson Brass for my 243, I must say, BEST brass ever!

Well jorge, now that Boxer has weighed in, you can use that as a contra-indicator and know you've made the right decision to snag that .240

You know I'm not a Weatherby fan, but damn! That one looks nice!

I think Ingwe would like that one, who wouldn't.

If he had one, it would be his BIG gun... wink

No offense, Boxer, but did you intend to use a 257 100 gr partition in that first table or a 243/6mm?
