Mossberg or Weatherby?

Im looking for a new rifle and have narrowed my caliber down to a 270 WSM. now im debating on the gun. My decision is between a Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 sporter or a Mossberg 4X4. Both are wood stock, both have a 24" barrel, and both look to be quality guns. Unfortunately I have never owned neither a Mossberg or Weatherby rifle so I don't know which is better or the qualities both hold. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

I would go with the Vanguard.

Just my opinion

Weatherby, hands-down.

I don't particularly care for Mossberg products, even though I have an 835 Ulti-Mag for turkey hunting. Had it since I was 10.

I love my Weatherby Mark V Accumark .257 Wby Mag...It's a slick shooter.

I have to agree with them, Vanguard/Howa.
