Theyre about equal far as I can tell. ~3000fps +/- with a 300gr bullet. Brass definitely gone be better on the Lapua. Plus you dont use quite as much powder in the AX. I would go for the AX. Not to mention anything from Mr Allen is going to be far and away better and more accurate than something from Weatherby. No offense to Weatherby rifles/fans, thats just the nature of the business of custom vs mass-produced.
