Weatherby has great customer service. They stand by their products and if it’s their fault they will fix it.

I wouldn’t think it could be that. I would think your holes were tapped wrong if it was that far off?

I have been using the slick tricks more lately than the Grim Reapers. I have really only been shootin 20-40 yards though. A couple people told me that the reapers tend to open early with crossbows. I don’t want that. I kept my open for Rage heads on clearance so I could give them a try but no luck there.
I would of thought that I would of noticed string stretching by now but I haven’t noticed any yet.

I have been watching for more reloads for the 6.5-300. I been wanting to try those out as well. I was upset how my 129 grain SST’s and my 140 grain Accubonds turn out. My best luck has been with factory 127 grain Barnes. Really want to find something to get the cost down a bit.

I have been wanting to get into flintlocks. You would think as much as I am into muzzleloaders I would have a couple. I guess I have found many good deals on caplocks and not to many flintlocks. Or have been late showing up for the deals. Thanks for sharing.

How stupid does those 30 round mags sound now lol

Must be cause i have purchased at three different stores very recently and with a beard I wasn’t even carded.

All I know is that Walmart had gave a lot to our family. Not that we have not sacrificed for the company but my wife started with a job there when we where scraping by and then made a career there. She has climbed the ladder of success there where many companies would of just took for granted her skills as an employee (associate) and then on too management. Walmart had made a good living for her and us. She doesn’t have anything to do with business practices that executives do and neither do the 2.5 million other workers they employ(just throwing a number out there). I know some people say they are evil because they are in buisness just to make a profit, well if you are in business to break even and not come out of head you are not going to go anywhere. They have stock holders that they have to keep happy.
I am sure Weatherby is about making a profit and none of us here are against that.
It’s just to easy to use them as a punching bag because they want to make sure they make money. If they asked me about the their practices on gun sales which they won’t I would suggest othet practices. They are doing this as a potential trend that they are kind of forced to do. Ole Sam wouldn’t agree but unfortunately Sam isn’t with us anymore.

I know the walmarts that we shop at you can still buy ammo before 21. I still shop there, I get a good discount when shopping there.


After shipping and and transfer still cheaper. Do do you think Weatherby is going to round up used rifles for a nation rifle, no. I am talking about a new manufactured rifle, it being chambered in .340 wby mag, made for a few of us here and limited public. The cheapest way for Weatherby to do this is with a standard Vanguard. I am not interested in buying a new to me rifle chambered in it.

I never have seen a Mark V in .340 for $495-$650.
I would think it would be a relatively low cost venture for Weatherby. If they don’t for some reason sell lets say 100 somewhat a limited edition rifle at a much lower cost than their Mark V action rifles to members as a “Nation Rifle” I am sure they won’t be sitting on shelves at a gun store long and no money would be loss. The price of the Vanguard rifles are very attractive especially in a Weatherby caliber.

I have thought about this before the latest thread but thanks to it the idea peaked my intrest again.
When I mean standard I mean a standard S2 with a 26” barrel.

I was wanting to try and get some of the important people’s attention at Weatherby and see if they would consider chambering a few standard Vanguard rifles in .340 Wby Mag as the next Nation Rifle. I don’t know if they would consider it or not?
I didn’t get in the last “Nation Rifle” because I was late to the game. I look at my 6.5-300 as a “Nation Rifle”. What do you guys think?
