    I was talking to a gun nut friend of mine in Alabama who told me that Weatherby rifles were hard to sell on the used market there. Not sure why. I’ll probably offload a couple of mine when I quit elk hunting. For practical purposes, there are plenty of new rifles that shoot as well. So either you like them enough to pony up or not…

      I have not.
      Just under 3,000 yards is a poke for sure.
      I have not shot that far...Just hasn't been goal for me to date.
      If I start to play at those distances, I will get one of these:

        Well said.
        That doesn't surprise me.

          The thing that amazed me it was with a 30-06. Did not think it had the gas to go that far.

            I've even got Handi-Rifles that will do less than 1 MOA. And I'm not that good of a marksman.

            But I understand, some people just feel better knowing they've purchased an expensive item. It helps them mentally justify the expenditure if they think it performs better as well as being purdy.

            my whole thing with mentioning Weatherby is the new lathe turned bullets, nothing more, nothing less. I don't care what you own, I actually have more remingtons, Winchesters and Brownings and also some more expensive than Weatherbys. Enjoy yours and I lwill do the same with mine. I do wear a W on my hat though.
            Last target I put up was a Remington 700, 30-06,
            three shot one hole.
            I have shot more deer and bear with a Winchester and Ithaca shitgun.

              As long as it is twisted right, the bullet will stay stable after it goes subsonic.
              After that it is all about decent conditions-Just more drop and drift.

                Optic?
                What bullet were they using?
                Shooting it single-shot?
                If, so it was probably long-throated for the specific bullet without worrying about mag length.

                      I haven’t watched all of their videos, but they are the real deal.

                        Just watched. Assuming they would use the 230 Berger and load them single shot

                          Speaking of Handi-Rifles, my son has a heavy fluted barrel H-R with the target (?) stock in .223 Rem that shoots extremely well. Death on coyotes. I’m trying to “borrow it” for an extended hunt. 😂

                          Also thinking about selling a gun or two and buying a Ruger American in .223 or .300 Blackout for a truck gun. I don’t like leaving “modern sporting rifles” in the vehicle.

                          All but one of my Weatherby’s has a matte blued finish with synthetic stock. The other one is burnt bronze Cerakote with a camo pattern stock. None of them is particularly deluxe or purty.

                            I have several NEF receivers and more interchangeable barrels. .223, .308, .45-70, .22-250 and the muzzleloader. Note of caution, do not take trigger group apart - special align tool required to re-assemble. I understand it is a kind of a pin and can be made but have not seen directions. Also, closed barrel clearance is .001" To adjust a gunsmith adds or removes material from the pivot point on the barrel. I have already mentioned more than I know about them. Enjoy, they all shoot really good .

                            I do have one that opens after firing but never had the barrel fitted to receiver. Some have auto ejectors that kick the brass out of sight but I like the ones that just extract so I can save the brass.
