I also dumped my weatherby's for good 'ol rem's. have never looked back also. Your problems sound all to familiar. I was laughed at on this site for stating that a rifle that is half the cost of a weatherby would shoot as good or better than the weatherby the majority of the time. So, where are the weatherby guys now? sounds like one more un-satisfied weatherby customer here. Just for arguments sake I am not saying that they don't shoot at all, or, that they can't shoot 1/2 MOA. I have seen them do it before. Just not as easily as a rem. IMHO.
you cant dump'em if you don't pull the trigger!
