Re: weatherby mark v vs remington 700 sps ss
Everyone stating weatherby's cant shoot under 1.5MOA with factory loads must not have done much shooting. I am by no means an experienced pro but I have seen many vanguards, let alone mark Vs shoot right around 1MOA or a bit better with certain factory loads.
To the original poster...YES there are cheaper and more types 308 Factory loads making it EASIER to find a better shooting factory load in a particular gun, HOWEVER, if this is your friend you are trading with and not a gun shop...you are getting ripped off unless he is throwing something else in with the deal. A Remington SPS tactical goes for like 650 new...your Mark V goes for like 800 USED for a basic mark V...even more if it is a higher end mark 5.
SELL your Mark V and buy a NEW SPS and pocket the difference in cash.
OR Better yet...sell your MARK V and with the cash you might be able to afford a brand new Remington Sendero in 300 WIN MAG which also has readily available ammo and will be an AWESOME long range gun... lots of guys on here buy the senderos. They are great rifles.
