I hope yall are right...  I'll pick up a box of 50s or 55s or something similar tomorrow.  i was melting down...  Still might go critical if the lighter bullet doesn't solve it!

rest easy my friend most and i mean most of the gun manufacturers that mass produce guns which wby/howa would be included in this use the 1:12 in a lot of .224 caliber rifles this would include the .223 you are currently fretting about, my 22-250 is a 1:12 too and it wont shoot a 60 gr bullet for sh*t, 55 and less are great

It says 1:12 on the weatherby website, so unless they made them differently 10 years ago, i will assume that it's the same on that rifle.

Actually I believe it will shoot pretty darn good. It didn't shoot the wrong bullets weights half bad. I would look for some tight groups with some 50's or 55's. Good Luck

Problem solved!!!
 
 
It's hard to see the writing, but the upper right group of 5 ROUND holes is remington 55 gr. FMJ.  The very nice, if I do say so myself, middle group is a 3-shot, one-hole group of 40 gr hornady AMAX.  I meant to put a dime in the pic for reference for you micrometer types, but one hole is only .223, so pull out a set of dividers if you're so inclined and tell me what that measures! Big%20Smile  Anyhow, long paragraph to say THANKS to you guys for your help.  Glad it worked out.
