No, I would say that Weatherbys are more like Ducatis or BMW motorcycles. Allen Mags, Panda, Bat, those are your Harleys and custom motorcycles. I own a few currently and have owned and sold a few. I love my 7mm Wthby Mag in Mark V Deluxe. German made, was my dad's before mine. It goes boom, animal drops dead. I have NEVER failed to loose an animal shot with that rifle. I also currently own a 30-378 Wthby Mag in Mark V Accumark. Love it. Haven't had the time to play (defined as work up loads) yet, but the rifle shoots extremely well. Bought a .243 Vanguard youth model that would shoot 1/2 MOA but traded that for a Rem 700 22-250 with a heavy barrel. Mistake.
So, for those of you who don't like yours, let me know, I have plenty of room in my closet for another Weatherby (or several). But seeing that "it doesn't shoot well" (for you) I will offer you a discounted offer!
