Long Range Demon TacKac,
I don't understand how you came to the conclusion "most are tring to be politicly correct but really they are all basicly saying the same thing!...they don't shoot for Sh%t and ther are a waste of money".
60% of us respondants that have owned and used them have been positively impressed by them. 40% were not happy with their experience.
Now if you want to argue "value" and making a semi-custom rifle
that can out perform a Weatherby you may very well be able to do so. But you may not too. Not everyone wants to shop around for a used action, find a reliable gunsmith that really knows his stuff and wait for 6-12 months to put together a gun that might be better than what they can buy off the shelf for about the same money. Remember, just because a gun is "custom" doesn't mean it will shoot well.
7Ultra, Which ever way you go I wish you the best of luck.
PS I didn't get a chance to test my 257 on a living critter. I only saw two doe in 5 days of hunting. The lack of snow didn't help any.
