    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good shooting.

    Have you seen the U Tube where the guy is shooting a 30-06 1.7 miles ?

    I am all for hunting with what you you want to hunt with.
    Diversity is the spice of life.
    Hunt what you want with what you want, as long as it is legal and you are competent with it.
    Spend all of the money you want.

    Trying to convince people here that a brand XYZ is special because of it's accuracy promise of 1" inch or better for three shots doesn't do much for me personally.
    I have seen a bunch of factory rifle of all different brands accomplish that.
    Howa makes the Vanguard, and it is a solid rifle for a good price. They shoot well too.
    Majority of the time I do not break a barrel in.
    If I was building a match rifle for 1K bench or Nationals or world's I might put about 10-15 rounds through it with some clean and shoot for the first three shots, then go to 3 and clean, just to burnish the throat area primarily.
    This is 15 shots at 800 yards. I kept thinking it was 750 yards, until went back and checked.
    I never broke this barrel in.
    My point is, you don't have to try convince us your gun is best.
    By all means post pictures, range reports, and hunting success.
    Be proud of your gun and it's capabilities.
    I have felt like the marketing department for brand XYZ is working overtime lately.
    Just because they are in Wyoming, I have been drawn to pick up a rifle for a spare for a loaner, for hunters to use, but I already have a Tikka 30-06 for that. Yes I do that!
    Factory rifle and ammo is better than ever-Enjoy what you have!
