The .300 Weatherby, though not has popular as it once was,
is still a widely sought-after round for many big-game hunters. However, though
the recoil is moderate, many cannot handle the muzzle blast and noise emitted
.300 Weatherby leaves the barrel.
Roy Weatherby created the .300 Weatherby in 1944. Weatherby already had experience with other
custom cartridges, such as his own
.270 Weatherby Magnum, when he
.300 Weatherby. Like most of his other magnum cartridges, this is
based on a blown-out
.300 H&H Magnum case, using the signature
Weatherby double-radius shoulder.
It is often debated which came first, the 300 Winchester
Magnum or the 300 Weatherby Magnum; the Weatherby was first 1944 while the
Winchester was introduced in 1963 and the
.300 Remington Ultra
Magnum being introduced in 1999.
In recent years, Remington, Winchester and Ruger have produced rifles in
this caliber, and most major ammunition manufactures now supply factory loads.
It has, however, seen a steady decline in popularity, especially as shooters
tend to shift to more of an all-around rifle, such as the 30.06. However, this
round has truly killed every animal imaginable on the planet many times over.
For that reason alone, it is doubtful that the
.300 Weatherby will ever be put
our of existence.
Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.
It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
