Extreme Wyoming

Extreme Wyoming

Finger-numbing cold, horizontal snow, oceans of sagebrush and a multitude of antelope and mule deer. Wyoming in the fall is a place of extremes. OL Editor Andrew McKean hunted mule deer and antelope near Glenrock earlier this month.

Looks like a great hunt!!! The .300 Weatherby is a great round... it's all about bullet placement when you're hunting antelope... I used my .300 Weatherby Mag on my antelope hunt this fall and with two well placed bullets I didn't lose any meat and each animal was down immediately.

I just noticed that Weatherby loads a 130gr Barnes Tipped TSX for the 300 Weatherby. I bet this makes a great open country muley and antelope load.

One man's cull is another man's trophy. No sense in getting riled up about it.

I can't stand it when people say "nice management buck", any of these deer would be damn nice for most of us that hunt public land.

And then you can shoot squirrels with a 50 Cal

If you shoot only 1 rifle as I do, there's nothing that can beat the .300. Pretty much covers all of North America and then some.

the bullets can be loaded from 110 to 220 grain is they were using handload the weatherby part of the name is just a different case size the .300 is actually .308 exact same as a 30-06 or a 300 win mag and many others. when your a great bullet like the barnes triple they will not explode they will simply expand really fast and just punch holes through antelope and muley's i would suspect they uses 125 or 150 grain

Im not familiar with the weatherby round but I have seen the .300 win mag do nasty things to bull moose.Now if Mr.McKean only had 1 rifle to hunt both mulies and pronghorn, possibly I could understand using it,better to have 'enough gun' for both species but this isnt specified.How light of a bullet is offered in the weatherby, Ive never seen anything lighter than 150grain offered for the winmag, but around these parts its a gun geared for moose and caribou not small pronghorn.

Why not a .300 Weatherby. Shooting extreme ranges coupled with a light load makes the .300 a perfect open country rifle.

Isnt a .300Weatherby Magnum kinda overkill for a pronghorn? Cant say I've ever heard of anyone using anything bigger than a .270 on them
