One of the first 1200 rifles Roy Weatherby made. Mauser action, 26 inch barrel “Roundnose”(in reference to the shape of the stock fore-end). The stock was refinished and the recoil pad was replaced with I think a Limbsaver. The rifle is wearing a Leupold VX3i 3.5-10x40 with Butler Creek flip up caps. I have the box and neoprene scope cover to go with it. Also coming with the rifle is some vintage ammo. 35 rounds of Weatherby 180gr soft points and 32 rounds of Winchester.300 H&H 180gr Silvertip rounds that will fireform to .300 Weatherby.

Trade for a quality full-size 1911 such as a Kimber Stainless Custom TLE II (or a Glock 41 or 21 Gen 4 plus cash to even out the deal)

Nice rifle. I have a similar one, like yours built (1952) on a Mauser action. Roy W was importing those actions in the early 1950's. What year was your built?

What does it mean when you say the H&H will 'fireform' to the .300 wby? Are you saying it's compatible to this rifle and can be swapped out safely? Not a term I'm familiar with.

BTW thanks for the new pics, really helps. Beautiful rifle!

Yes, the .300 H&H magnum cartridge is the parent cartridge to the .300 Weatherby magnum. In the early days of Weatherby, it was the only way to get brass for reloading

More on my Wby memories


https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/weatherby/how-to-post-a-new-topic-and-posting-pictures-t28.html Great story about a rifle and meeting Roy Weatherby - Topic


I wrote a reply at the article above. Repeated below.


Dad and I were really into hunting and the rifles for that. But most of our shooting was off the bench. In a period probably less than 10 years we shot through two 100 pound kegs of surplus 4831 in our magnums and 270Win. I love how my 7 mag shot flatter than Dad's 300Wby.


reply to article:


When I was 9-10+ years old Dad and I went to the Southgate store very often. This was late 50s into 60s. I met Roy Weatherby more than once via the store worker named Max. We got the shop tour more than once. At a stockmakers shop not at Weatherby’s, I saw and even polished on the blue stock that was going to be on a rifle presented to Walter O’Malley.


Dad had a 300Wby but had it rebarreled to Douglas by a barrel fitter named Shook (I think). Also had a 378Wby. One other was a Mk V action with a standard bolt face that he made into a 270 Win. Come to think of it the stockmaker was named Shaw. Don’t hold me to that. It has been a long time.


And here is the O'Malley stock I polished on at the stockmaker shop.
