Re: Mossberg or Weatherby?
I think the previous responses are a clear indication of the attitude you'll find across the spectrum of rifle owners. With the long run of success at the entry level, and the recent improvements to the triggers, it's hard not to recommend the weatherby S2 vanguard(S1's aint half bad either, I'm very pleased with the two I own). Whether justified or not, it's tough for newer products at the entry level to overtake seasoned veterans like the vanguard line. Weatherby bolt actions are as respectably recognized as just about any gun manufacturer, even though Howa produces the vanguard line. The Mossberg should be cheaper, and you can find plenty of satisfied 4x4 customers on the net, but you can expect to find similar responses to the ones above on any forum. I would guess after market parts may favor the vanguard as well.
