300 Weatherby Accumark

Currently looking at a 300 Weatherby Accumark. It is quite a bit more money than the 300 Weatherby stainless synthetic I had initially intended on buying. Is this rifle really more accurate than the other Weatherby rfiles? All feedback appreciated.

Re: 300 Weatherby Accumark

I have a 300 wby accumark. It is an accurate rifle. Recently I was talking to a guy in the weatherby custom shop and he pointed out that on the synthetic and stainless synthetic, you get a plastic stock. He made it sound like this reduces accuracy. I am not so sure how much. I was asking about a 257 wby and asked which he prefered whether it be custom of not and he mentioned the accumark, lightweight or super big game master. Handloading, you can produce some very accurate rounds.

I have a 30-378 in the stainless synthetic and the stock is definatly the weak point of the rifle. Haven't ever had an accumark but the stock looks to be a much more solid piece than the stainless synthetic. Why not a sendero in 300 RUM? Much better cost to performance ratio.

I have an Accumark in 300 WBY and have been very pleased with it. Accuracy runs arround 1/2 MOA. The stock is very solid with an aluminum bedding block.

Re: 300 Weatherby Accumark

firemedic - are you using weatherby factory ammo? I am not set up for handloading and will be buying factory made shells. With the outrageous cost, I would expect them to be just as good as handloads.

cobra - do you feel the accuracy is better in the RUM?

Thanks for you replies.

Re: 300 Weatherby Accumark

wthby told my dealer that they are basicaly a max load of imr7828,..and hence the 1 1/2" garantee. You have 2 choices,..handload or rebarrel with no freebore.

or #3,..a sendero in 300wthby [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
