Now there is a cartridge that I have always admired. That ought to be a real shooter with a bedding and trigger job.

comparing a 300 Winchester and 300 Weatherby is kind of like comparing a 308 and 30-06 .... while they are similar, the Weatherby is a bit stronger .... ours is shown below .... it is a Remington 700 BDL (shown below) built during the first year Remington offered the 300 WBY .... out of the box ours was the hardest kicking rifle I've ever fired .... I couldn't stand to fire it enough at a single sitting to sight in a scope .... many folks here have 45-70's and they can attest that when firing dangerous game level ammo, a 45-70 hard kick with ammo packing 50 +/- gr of powder .... 300 WBY ammo is loaded with 85 +/- gr .... the good news for us is, after some serious mods designed to reduce felt recoil, my wife who can't stand the recoil of a model 94 30-30, has fired it .... sending a 180 gr Nosler Accubond bullet down range with a muzzle velocity of 3200 fps, it shoots flat and delivers a wallop at long distances .... needless to say, its fully capable of taking game at distances I am not capable of shooting

Oh yes, a Rem 700 too. My first rifle after the Nam was a Rem 700 in 06. Very accurate shooters. I shot a 300 Weatherby from a Weatherby rifle that a friend of mine bought for Brown Bear back in the 70's. Back then I wasn't recoil sensitive like I am now. I didn't have the nerve damage then either, lol. I sold my 338 mags because I just couldn't take the beating anymore.

all too well understood .... back in the 60's, 70's and even into the 90's I could fire hard kicking long guns .... my Ithaca model 37 featherweight slug gun had a very harsh recoil but I shot it often .... back in '09 a heart issue requiring blood thinning meds drastically reduced my tolerance for recall .... a single round fired from hard kicking rifle or shotgun would leave me with a badly bruised shoulder .... I've never owned or fired a 338 and doubt I could stand shooting one today .... over the years I've wanted 2 very different rifles .... one capable of dropping large game a great distances and one capable of taking on an elephant hunt .... as noted, they are wants, by no stretch of the imagination needs .... the 300WBY filled the first and a Henry 45-70 filled the second .... even though the chance of me ever going on a hunt where either would be required, I've spent a good bit of money upgrading them both .... and NO, I've never regretted spending a penny on improving them .... I'm in the process of coming up with a Cowboy Action (low recoil) round for the 45-70 and can't rule out eventually doing so for the 300WBY

Let me know what you come up with for the 45-70 for a soft shooting round. I started to head that way with my Marlin Guide Gun but keep playing with my deer loads. I shoot 350 gr. Ranch Dogs and 405 gr. WFN bullets out of mine. I cast for both. I bet black powder would be a hoot.

I don't fire any cast bullets .... doing so gives you a big edge in bullet selection .... our CCH 45-70 really likes 300 gr Nosler Ballistic Silvertips ====> https://shop.nosler.com/nosler-bullets/ ... -50ct.html .... I keep an eye on Shooter's Pro Shop and when they have them in stock, I buy all I can afford ====> http://www.shootersproshop.com/loading- ... -50ct.html .... unless I was to ever have an opportunity hunt really dangerous, large game (which ain't likely) I'll load the same bullet for regular big game hunting .... weather permitting, I hope to be able to come up with a light recoil, paper punching load in November

Will be sending off my 223 to the recall shop next week. Comforting to read all the positive feedback. I'm having second thoughts about shipping in the origin box an wrapping paper. Anyone experience shipping damage on the return side?

Nice looking rifle, "wise is the man who covers the wife's couch lest gun oil be deposited thereupon", some of us were not so wise...

When I sent mine back I asked for the box to send it in. They sent a Henry Box and the the outside plain cover sleeve. I got mine back today no damage either way. But when I sent mine in I wrapped the gun with bubble wrap before I placed it in the white Henry box.

I like Noslers. Those bullets should really flatten out the trajectory of the 45-70. Recoil should be reduced greatly also with the smaller diameter. Some loads with my 405's are just to nasty for me to add anymore powder to them.Even my 350 Ranch Dogs are softer when shooting from the bench.

I have sent more guns back to the manufacturer in the last five or six years than I care to remember. If you have the original white box I would recommend getting it as tight as possible with bubble wrap or something similar then making an outer box out of heavy cardboard from a nold refrigerator box. (I pick the cardboard up at a local dealer) It seems like a little over kill but have never had a problem doing it this way.
