Hello All, This is my first post on the forum here. I recently purchased my very first rifle, a weatherby accumark in 300 wby mag for an elk hunt this fall with my dad and uncle. Long story short, there appears to be a problem with the rifle and I had to send it in to weatherby to diagnose said problem. The issue is, it is sounding unlikely that I will have the rifle back in time for my hunt. As you could imagine I am not too thrilled about having purchased a rifle (very expensive one at that) for this specific hunt (which will not be happening again for a long time if ever) and not having it. I live in MN so such a big boomer is not really necessary here for white tails (where I am from we can't even rifle hunt. I need to go further north to use a rifle). Anyway, I feel bummed and disappointed, but also obligated to purchase a new rifle (before the last minute) in case my weatherby won't get back in time. It is important to me to get comfortable shooting the gun I take on the hunt. To get comfortable, I need to shoot it. I have narrowed down the caliber to 7mm mag. I was looking at 6.5 CM as well, but I want a little extra juice for out west. besides, I can always go light grain and have it be quite effective for white tails. I have narrowed it down to the Sako 85 grey wolf in 7mm mag. or the browning xbolt LR pro in 7mm mag. I lean towards the Sako and would have already bought it except I have heard a lot of internet chatter about ejection issues when paired with larger scopes (I have a vortex pst gen II 5-25x50). The spent casing ejecting to high and hitting the underside of the scope/turrets sending the case back in the action. I am wondering if these ejection issues have been fixed or if they are still occurring. I know some may say its not an "issue" because the casing is ejecting. Or its as much the guns fault as it is the scopes, but the reality is there seems to be an "issue" or at least "design flaw". Would prefer not to get into this issue-- just whether or not it is still happening? Buying another scope is not an option. What I have is the set-up i need to use. I would hate to spend a bunch more money just to run into more issues.
