There are some that have never owned a Weatherby that condem them because of too much free bore. There are some that condem them as over priced. There are some that own them that are very satisified with them and have had great sucess with them. There are a few that have had them and had bad experience with them, pretty much the same as any brand. If you are planning on having it customized there is a lot more options for a Remington or Savage.
I have a 257 Wby. and found that with the 115gr. X-Bullet I could consistantly get around a 3/4" group, some times less. When I had a Rem 700 VS-SF in 22-250 I ususally got groups ranging from 1/2 - 3/4" depending on ammo, wind and the loose nut on the trigger.
