Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Re: 7 mm on 300 weatherby

I have a hunch we may see a new 7mm of sorts coming from Weatherby in the future.
I agree with the current 7mm being a great Cartridge and not needing replacement, however with Adam confirming that Weatherby is working on a few new cartridges, the 7mm is about the only popular caliber Weatherby can’t claim “top dog” status and has me wondering if that’ll be one of the new releases?

Personally, I have my fingers crossed for a Varmint round, 20-224, 220 Rocket, etc. offered in a fast twist heavy contoured 26” barrel.

That is a Beauty BB!
Photos never really seem to do justice, and as nice as yours looks in the photos, I can only imagine just what that beaut looks like in person!

Pretty sure they were the 24’s, be surprised if any of the 26” Vanguards have found there way to the stores yet.
buds gun shop has some like the 6.5-300 with 26 inch for $512.00

I got one last week from Buds 8)

That’s cool that they’re out and about already, didn’t think they would be quite yet.
I’m pretty sure they were 24’s though because there were some other rifles sitting next to them that were sticking up a 1” or 2” higher that I’m guessing were 26”. Maybe that’s why they’re on sale, they’ve got 26’s coming?

Can’t go wrong, all three are absolutely great-proven Cartridges!
You have it narrowed down to three, so I hate to mess with that, however for Whitetail and wanting less meat damage, the 240 Weatherby May deserve some attention also? An absolute hammer on midsize game way out past 250 yds and with the Barnes TTSX you won’t waste much meat! Seeing you have a 300 for the big stuff, I thought I’d just throw the 240 in the mix and in the Mark V platform a 240 will weigh a full pound less then the other 3 Cartridges.

I was in the Owatonna MN Cabelas the other day and they had 5 NIB 257 Accuguards all lined up on a shelf on sale for $799 each if anyone’s interested. Not sure if all the Cabelas with Accuguards in stock would be running that sale or not, just thought I’d let the Nation know, seems like a good buy.

Accessories / New Wearables!

Just browsed through the accessories section on the Weatherby site, been a while, glad to see some new items in there! Probably old news for most of you, but recommend checking them out if you haven’t!

Thinking the Hoodie and Long Sleeve- T will be finding there way to my address.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

I’ll check when I get home on Thursday Para, I may have a couple extra if I can find them, I had a few stashed up and slapped a couple on my truck along with a Weatherby license plate frame. If I find a couple I’ll sure give em to ya.

I’ve been thinking about a 10mm also. Seen last year Colt updated the Delta Elite with a few new features and looks pretty tempting.
Had a Remmy in my hands the other day with the 6” length and felt real nice also. Little scared about Rem quality lately though.

I wonder if we could see a return of the CFP once settled in? I know there was some issues manufacturing it in Cali. and was told once the name was changed from Center Fire Pistol to Compact Firing Platform for legal reasons out there. Maybe that is why it was eventually discontinued completely?

They are coming to Sheridan Wyoming..
That would be cool!
I would think it has to be much easier to build a firearm in Wyoming then in California.

Like I said earlier, I bet real world prices come in closer to that $3000 price, the $4100 is retail remember. Don’t take a whole lot when building a Custom Rifle to climb up to $3000.
Don’t want to argue with anybody on here one way or the other, just saying, a bit unfair to be criticizing it for costing $4100 when I know it won’t be anywhere near that with a reputable dealer!
For example without even looking long online Weatherby lists an Accumark RC for $2800 retail and I can buy one right now today in 6.5-300 for $1895 and retail on a Ultra Lightweight of $2300 and buy one brand new today in 257 for $1609.

Definitely has me intrigued! The "once" in a generation thing is what really has me wondering? I was originally thinking another hot new Cartridge was on its way when I read "big announcement at shot show", but seeing the 6.5-300 was just released a couple years ago, that doesn't seem logical with "once in a generation"?

Just looking at some of the other Weatherby Mark V's such as Accumark, Terramark, Deluxe, etc, I can get real world prices from "good" dealers anywhere from $700-$1000 off of MSRP's ranging in the $2300-$3000 range, so I would bet that with a $4100 MSRP on the Carbon Mark, you will see "real" prices of around $3000, maybe less? Still a lot, but sounds way better then $4100.
