My statement is not 'anti Weatherby', as you say. It is simply stating that some 'smiths don't care for the Weatherby actions, largely due to the 9 lug configuration.
I hear you and don't have a problem with the fact that some smiths don't like them but to
say there is something wrong with them Is a different story.
There are actions that I prefer not to use but I don't say there is anything wrong with them
I just prefer something else.
And if they don't like them they just need to say that.
Most of the time I hear this it is because someone wants to sell another type action and try
to convince others that there is something wrong with what they want.
Actually I like the fact that some people don't like the Weatherby because it makes it easier
for me to find them to use or build on.
As far as I know there is not an unsafe newly manufactured rifle out there and the Weatherby
is undoubtedly the strongest (9 Lugs and all) Years ago white laboratories tested all of the
commercial actions to destruction and the only action that they could not destroy was the Mk 5
Weatherby all of the others failed including my favorite action (The 700 Remington).
So it only leaves me to believe that "those Smiths" cannot make them shoot or they simply don't
Sorry if I offended you but I would recomend believing nothing you hear and only half of what you see
.Enough said .
