    Good caliber, good ballistics. Maybe a barrel burner because of the over bore. Because it's aWeaterby it's not readily available and definate hand load cartridge if you want to shoot it much. What do you want to use it for?

    My old man ended up getting it in the ultra light model he's taking it to Montana next week on a deer hunt. Sucker shoots fast and the handloads my cousin made for it are impressive

    I have had one for a number of years

    my cousin shoots his almost exclusively

    he took a monster mule this year at 325 yards and shot a cow elk last year at 300 yards

    Ive seen a lot of Ca bucks and pigs taken with that round. Its probably my favorite weatherby cartridge
