    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!)

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

    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.

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

    Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
