My 300Wby has given up the ghost. The throat is gone and accuracy has gone out the window. Had it confirmed today. That leaves me without a back up rifle for my Arizona hunt.
So I decided to take my Ruger Mk II 338Win Mag out of storage (it was in a friends business safe that was climate controlled) to use as a back up for my hunt.
It has had 15 factory rounds through it before I put it in storage. I was so busy at that time with my Weatherby's like my 257-300Wby that I did not have time to play with it.
I do not have time to work up loads with all that I have to do at work before I go on my trip. I will purchase some Double Tap ammo loaded with the 200gr Accubond so I can really reach out there if I need to in a certain open area, that is if we hunt that area. So if my 358Win gets damaged I will have the 338Win Mag as a back up.
Here is the 338Winny with the scope off the 30-06 a VX-III 2.5-8x40mm.
