Re: Weatherby Rifles

I've had a few, keyword here is HAD. I'll never have another!

(I did have a great shooting 257 (Japan version) for a while but generally I've been disappointed in them!)

Re: Weatherby Rifles

I'm not much of a LRH, but I have three. 2 Accumark's and a Vanguard.

Re: Weatherby Rifles

I own 1 Weatherby and it's a Accumark in 300 WinMag. I love it! Handles great, not too heavy to carry and is pretty accurate. Shoots 180 Nosler BT's 5 shots around 3/4" at 100yds, Just tried 220 SMK's last weekend and they went 3 shots at 1/2". I don't know if all Weatherby's are like mine but the bore is real smooth, doesn't foul, I clean it about every 30 rds or so.

Re: Weatherby Rifles

Dave King said it best. But that is just what I have found for me. I know other LRS and LRH that love them.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
