Re: Weatherby to release rifles in 338 Lapua Magnum
Weatherby does need to drop their prices. I have an AccuMark .257 Wby Mag I bought new in 2008, and I only paid $1,365 + tax, even as a special order. Went back to the same store last year looking to buy an AccuMark in .30-378 Wby Mag with an Accubrake. They wanted $1,997 + tax, so I walked on it...
Granted, an Accumark is basically a custom rifle, and has been trued from the factory. They are great shooters, but in my opinion, a bit too pricey for your average Joe hunter who just wants a good quality gun. Plus, putting a pretty good piece of glass on top, and your up to $3,000...
Just my opinion.

Ignore everything I say, because I have a reading comprehension and memory problem...
