Why not??? Can't think of one good reason not to.
I've owned and own... many of the Weatherby's models and calibers over the past 45 years.. from .22 LR's to .340 Wby. made in South Gate, Ca round the world back to Paso Robles, Ca.
Their economy line is functional and nice looking, there has to be a physical appeal involved.
The higher grade rifles like Mark V's in wood is were Weatherby made it's bones. I'm a giant fan of the Wearthby Mark V in wood, as well as their Mark V Accumarks for out and out shoot ability and accuracy out of the box.
I don't think anyone would argue as to the Weatherby developed cartridge(s), an their out of the boxe power for an off the shelf loaded cartridge. The re-loaders can; in most cases'.., put a little more giddy up in Wby case, using the Mark V's action due to their extremely strong action.
Sure ammo is expensive in the Wby case.. but they do chamber the good old standby in standard case's & calibers as well.
So again... can't think of any reason not to; Roy had it right.
