    Default .460 Weatherby Magnum - A Big Game Hunter's Best Friend

    Hi , every one . I'm new to these forums. But definitely not new to Weatherby rifles. My only rifle for the past 10 years has been a Weatherby Mark V chambered in .460 Weatherby Magnum. And Boy , does it do it's work ! I have never seen anything drop a Cape Buffalo or an elephant, like a .460 Weatherby Magnum Solid. While l own only one rifle , l have fired MANY in the last 25 years. The sheer stopping power of the .460 never ceases to amaze me.
    But l was recently reading on the internet , that detachable box magazines also exist for the .460 Weatherby Mark V . Is this true ? If so , then where can l get one and how should l configure my rifle to use detachable box mags ?
    Appreciate it ,
    Hoss

    Welcome aboard Hoss, Back in 2012 there was a guy making detachable mags & bottom metal to accommodate them. Not sure if he still is but here is a link to the thread he started.

    Here is another thread with more info & other links for the detachable mags.

    He last visited this site in June of 2018, so he may answer a PM
    Hope this helps

    Does anybody else here see the amazing connection of a man named "Hoss" who loves .460 Weatherby's? I think it's fantastic. Outstanding!! It doesn't get any better than that.
