Reloading Service
 
Does anyone know of a reloading service with accuracy in mind? I have been shooting a Weatherby Mark V 300WbyMag with a 6.5x - 20x Leuopold for years. I had it customized to improve the out of box accuracy and it shoots less than 1/2" at 100 yards with factory loads 150grain spire point made by Weatherby. A friend did some reloads for me...165 grain Sierra boat tail hollow points. The accuracy was less than optimal and it would throw a bad one in every 6 rounds. I do not have a reloader, for now. If anyone knows of such a service, I would appreciate the information. I am a stickler for accuracy.

thank you

I don't know of anyone (commercially) that reloads Weatherby cartridges. The best thing for you would be invest into reloading yourself,that way you can make ideal loads for your guns.
You can get started rather inexpensive with single stage presses,and if you are just loading one caliber that is what I would suggest.

"...it shoots less than 1/2" at 100 yards with factory loads 150grain spire point made by Weatherby."

If you're getting that you best stick with it. And buy up all that ammo you can get in case they change something in it later.

I have hand-loaded for many years and anyone who can shoot a 300 Weatherby Mag. into "less than 1/2" at 100 yards", and is looking for better, is not in the real world. If you would put in the years, and $ for learning custom loading, you MAY perhaps do better for yourself? This is doubtful.:eek::p:eek:

yeah .5" with a weathery mag is amazing.

I'm taking it YOU don't want to learn how to reload. The problem here is you need a federal license to manufacture ammunition for sale. Not to mention liability insurance costs.
