I want to buy a Weatherby Ultra-light rifle in 300 wby mag. Has anyone ever shot one of these rifles in the 300 ? Im left handed and the only two choices Weatherby offers for this rifle is the 257 wby mag and the 300 wby mag, I would like the 300 for elk and bear, but just want to know if the recoil in a 6lbs rifle will be too stout to shoot. I love the ballistics of the 257 and I know it kicks around the same as a 270 win, so if the 300 is too much I would buy the 257. What do you guys think ? I hear the 257 wby is enough gun for elk.
