Default Gun for Xmas

I was thinking about a new gun for Xmas and one is was looking at is the Weatherby Vangaurd I was looking at it for whitetails. I live in the mountains but there are some fields and brush also. I was thinking about geting it in the .257 or the .270 Weatherby Mag. I wanted to have some input on the gun quality its self and which caliber I should choose

You should really look at a Savage. I have a .243, and I love shootin it, I use it for yotes, not deer cause it is not legal in Iowa, but it shoots great. The accu-trigger is cool, real easy to adjust trigger pull.I have shot a .270 Savage also, liked that too.

skip the weatherby calibers(unless you reload), ammo is very expensive. Instead get a 270 win or 243 or a 30-06 and shoot the hell out of it.
edit: vanguard is a good choice for a rifle. suppose to be good shooters too.

Either the .257 or .270 weatherby mag will do awesome for whitetail.
