    Re: Burris XTR 6-24x50 scope

    I owned two, had to send back both. The reticle wouldn't take the abuse from my 300 Weatherby with a brake on it. I've switched to vortex.

  4. Question on labeling on the rifle barrel...

    I came across a weatherby that was older... It states on the barrel... "USE ONLY WEATHERBY .300 W.M" Is this Win Mag? Or Weatherby Magnum?

    Thanks.
