    Looking at the new Mark V Backcountry... I cant help myself. However, with a kiddo on the way, I have to sell something to buy the Backcountry.

    My question is simple: what Weatherby caliber would you use if you could only have one for the foreseeable future?

    I only have one rifle chambered for a Weatherby cartridge. It's a .340, so I guess that's my favorite by default.

    If I were a hunter, I'd probably find out what happens when I stuff that case full of Trail Boss and top it with a 160 grain Barnes.

    I’m at my blind with it right now.
    257 Weatherby. Had a 300 for a short time they are good for elk and moose but absolutely not necessary.
