Weatherby action vs. Remington action
Is one better than the other? A lot of you here like the Remington 700 action. Is it heads-and-shoulders above the other production rifles? I had a Weatherby Accumark and thought it was a fine piece of work. It was a .30-378, so I never found out how accurate it could be. What was I thinking? Ammo=$$$$ Well, you might guess what I was thinking..."bigger is better!" That younger fella has become a more conscious and frugal person (I still don't mind shelling out for the rifle itself..nothing over $1500). I sold the Accumark and am now in a position to buy a new deer rifle for hunting here in the southeast. I also want to do a little target shooting with it too. That's why I'm wanting something that will take care of the deer and also have a chance at being a tack driver. I thought about going with Weatherby's Super Varmint Master in .308 or maybe 7mm-08. I like the stainless, fluted, 26" barrel. I wonder if Weatherby would do a 26" barrel in the Accumark for standard ammo? I know more about the .308 as of now, so that's where I'm leaning. What about the Remington? I liked the looks of the Sendero with the bull barrel, but they no longer make it. I'm not a custom kinda guy, but I would like to start re-loading my ammunition. Does anyone know where I can read-up on some more info to help me decide on a rifle? Can anyone explain the action differences?
Sorry if the post sounds long-winded!
