The gun is sided with incredAble accuracy and the range of a 22-250 the rifle can put some of the biggest and heartiest of game down flat. The rifle is sided with unbelievable knockdown power and penetration and not being limited by range or accuracy, this rifle is the king. But the rifle is limited to certain ammo. The other rounds make the rifle almost a .223 but when this rifle is sided with the 117 grain round nose it is almost comparable to a 300 Winchester short mag but with the trophy saving capabilities of the .243. If your looking for a perfect all around
Gun then this gun can take out just about anything you can put in front of it.
Do you work for Weatherby? Cuz that's awesome. Don't take no sh!t from nobody. Awesome man. Just awesome.

The 300 Weatherby is the most popular but the founders favorite was the 257. He dropped a lot of African game w it. By today's std it was way too light but he hit them where the neck joined the head and they dropped like stones.

Callin' BS here! Your missing a few. In Africa anything under .375 is a no-no except the 9.3x62 for dangerous game. Many still use the 7x57 for plains game. It is about what you are hunting. For a guy that owns Weatherby's they are cartridges, but if you actually were a hunter, you would know that. Time to go back to MW2.

Thx it was way past time for some one to call this BS what it is. Anyone who has ever hunted big game and claims a 117 gr .25 bullet is the ultimate big game rifle is. Lets say very suspect. And the Africa comments sealed the deal.
