    Bell & Carlson stock


    Weatherby Mark V reamed out to 25-300

    Default Sheep gun

    I am going to build a sheep gun out of a less fancy verson.

    Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic in 257 Weatherby,

    Bell and Carlson Medalist carbelite stock with aluminum bedding block
    from Midway USA

    Steel Talley one piece rings/bases

    Conquest 3X9X40.

    Its not as light as some rifles but has reach and I want something that can grill sheep out to four hundred yards with accuracy.

    My 300 winchester has not failed me but it probably has seen much and
    will go into the sunset with many fond memories, scares and nights in the mountains.

    Yes, the 257WBY is and outstanding cartridge for flat shooting and the 100gr TSX makes it even better. The TSX will hold up on close shots and will open up as low as 1800fps and it is a killer. Here is my hunting load group using a 100gr TSX in what was my 257 (now being reamed to 25-300WBY).

    It is not a one holer like my target load but this will do for hunting
