Re: Remington AWR II vs Weatherby Mark V ultra lightweight

My Weatherby Ultra-Light in 338-06 is a great mountain rifle and an easy carry. It shot .72 MOA right out the gate with 185gr Barnes TSX bullets but the barrel does heat up fast.

My personal observation is that the 338-06 is probably the high end for me with that rifle. Shot a 300 Wby out of a Super Big Gamemaster off a bench and it is not a rifle I would like to work up a load for unless I had my Lead sled with me.

Re: Remington AWR II vs Weatherby Mark V ultra lightweight

Heard the ammo pitch all my life, has never happened to me. I purchased my WULM to go Sitka deer hunting. As for everything in
AK , you carry a big caliber for bear. I love my Weatherby Ultra 300 mag- the ultimate varmint rifle. If it can't kill it, you probably don't want too. PS ; many things can / do go wrong in AK. It is REAL hunting.

I went with the Weatherby because it requires les rotation to release the borlt, the bolt is stronger, I like the safety and well, family runs Weatherby. But as far as stocks, detachable mags and aftermarket pieces the 700 wins hands down.

As a side note, the AWR is a custom shop rifle.
