I started buying Weatherby's because they were local. Turned out to be a very good decision.
I was at Weatherby a while back. I asked them about actions. The response was 'we got burned' so no actions. I was told barreled actions are available. I did not ask the price at the time. I guess I now have a reason to visit the shop, oh darn.
At the moment there are 3 Mark Vs, 3 Vanguard (s1), 3 Rem 700 long actions. Now I am always on the look out for Mark Vs.
