    Help Needed - 280 AI, 140 accubond, Re23,26?

    I want to take this winter and try to really maximize my LAW 280 AI. The 140 nosler accubond was great in it as a factory load this fall so that is the bullet I want to play with. My goal is to find accuracy, safely in the 3250 FPS range which should be doable. I had my mind set on Re 26, but...

    Last second 375 h&h work

    2017 Idaho Fall Spot and Stalk Bear Down

    Bear Selfie Saturday? I surely earned this one. Found him heading down for a drink 4 miles in, in some nasty country. 215 yard shot with the 375 H&H and 260 Nosler Partition at 2800 FPS put him down for the count. However, like all bears, he found a crap hole to die in...my pack was as heavy as...

    3 weeks out - 375 moose/grizz rifle ready to go...

    Leupold knocked it out of the park and had me a new scope in hand in a week (VXR 2-7X33 went bad on the 375 H&H) after explaining I had a moose/caribou/grizz hunt in BC coming up very quick and this was the rifle I was taking. (Much Respect to Them) So I got it mounted in a little better system...

    .375 260 partition

    Am I the only one having a heck of time finding these? Everyone is either out of stock or back ordered? Is Nosler cutting production on them? I finally found "the load" for my 375H&H (260 Nos., 77 of n540, cci 250) for 2850 FPS and 1/2-3/4" accuracy, but I am out of bullets and cant find any...

    Tikka 22-250 1/8 twist

    So tomorrow morning I will head down and pick up my Whittakers Special - Tikka 22-250 1/8 twist. I have some talleys and for now (just so I can shoot it) will throw a 3-9x40 zeiss conquest on it.

    Customizing 375 H&H for Hunt

    As of today, I am officially 90 days out to my Northern BC moose hunt. I will be taking my recently purchased Weatherby Vanguard DGR 375 H&H rifle on this hunt. Being that I am a rifle tinker and for me this is a very expensive hunt, I am trying to customize this rifle to provide the very best...

    New VX6 on my baby - (the 270)

    Talleys came in today so I was able to get the new scope mounted on the 270. Its a VX6 2-12X42 Plex CDS. This scope replaces the 3-9x40 Zeiss Conquest it had before. I did this in an attempt to better utilize it's capabilities as a mid range (out to 600 yards) big game rifle. (Even though I have...

    Barrel Gaining Speed after Break in?

    Is it common for a barrel to gain velocity after proper breakin? Last summer, I put a new Shilen Barrel on my .270. I finished it at 24.75". I put approx 100 rounds down it (Barnes, Accubonds, Partitions) to break it in and develop a load for 2016 fall hunting season. I ended up settling on...

    375 Range Day - feedback needed - strange results

    Was able to get out to the range today to shoot my new 375 H&H. I had it bedded by the gunsmith and wanted to see what she could do. All my loads were Hornady Brass, CCI 250 primers, RE-15, and 250 BARNES TTSX and 270 BARNES TSX. With the 250's, I started at 72.0 grains to get sighted in and on...

    New Rifle - 375 H&H

    One of the dumbest things I have done in the last couple years was sell my Ruger 77 Afican 375 Ruger...It was killing me not having a 375. So when Sportsman's ran this on sale, I had to have it... Weatherby Vanguard DGR in 375H&H. Has B&C stock, NECG sights, and a very crisp trigger. Gun is 7...
