I priced the Weatherby's also....$399.99 and You will probably only get it in a synthetic stock,I priced a Savage 7mm-08 with the Accu-trigger in a nice wood grain in a bolt-action for $500.00.I'm probably going to go with the Savage because I have heard so many good things about them.I already have a Browning A-bolt Hunter in a .243 with the wood stock and matte black barrel and it shoots great,just want a Savage to add to my collection!


If You do get the Weatherby tells us how it shoots and what You like about it over a Savage...You may change my mind before I spend the extra $100.00 on a Savage.

check out E.R. Shaw...

I believe they're building rifles using a savage action, you get your pick of stock...caliber, barrel is an ershaw to your specs for I think $625...

a vanguard or howa is an excellent rifle. Triggers could be better but other than that they are good guns. Keep in mind savages are american made, the vanguard and howa's are japs. Nothing wrong with that I own both. Come to think of it though, none of them have factory barrels on them, my oldest howa was a 308 for probably 20 years and a couple of years ago I decided the barrel was shot out so I changed it.

The .243 and .30-06 have no use for a 26" barrel IMO. Are you set on 26"?

22-24" in either is more than ideal.

Weight for weight I'd rather have a shorter stiffer 22-24" barrel on either than a 26"'

a 24 in would work fine,i hunt the desert and am getting old but your probably right.i checked out some barrel builders and they said 24 is all i should go and they know more than me for sure.i would like a longer maybe 26in for my 22-250.that burns country is open and my favorite place.
