300 whby

I have owned my 300 whby for 6 years now and have killed 5 elk with it. All the animals where one shot kills from ranges of 80 yds to 328 yds. I use a 180 grain weatherby factory barnes x bullet. The ballastics for this combo are fantastic. It is a very flat shooting gun for a magnum rifle that also delievers good down range energy.
You wouldnt go wrong with owning that gun.

Re: 300 Weatherby Mag

I have experience with moose, caribou, bear, but not elk, but tpdoff gave you great information. This combo with the x-bullet will take anything in north america as long as the shot presents itself.

The 300 Weatherby definitely has the edge for the type of hunting you indicate. Your effective range will be further with it than the 338 win mag, and it is still going to do just fine on moose at closer ranges.

If you shoot it well, there's not much you can't do with it on this continent.
