I don't believe in Weatherbys that aren't Mark V's.....But I'd own an original Vanguard over a Savage, anyday.
Seriously, I just don't like Savage. I'm not gonna say they're bad, b/c they aren't.....But I just don't like them, and refuse to own one. I also don't like ANY of the short magnums. I like standard-length magnum cartridges.
The .257 Weatherby is a smokin round! I have a Mark V AccuMark in .257 Wby Mag. One of my favorite deer rifles I've ever owned. I do also like the looks of the new Vanguard S2 Deluxe in .257 Wby. Looks to be a shooter.
