Shotguns / Re: Anyone use the SA459 for coyote?
« on: May 27, 2018, 02:08:21 PM »
I'm in central Utah . I use hand calls and I have a Foxpro Fusion as well. I feel naked without my rifle, but now I have to have the shotgun no matter what too. So I carry both now, it's a pain to do but it pays off.

This has quickly become my favored weapon for coyote hunting. I kept having them run in charging hard to my call and then exiting twice as fast and me bumbling around with my bolt action was pathetic at times.

I agree with your trigger assessment, I would like to do something about mine as well.

Not sure yet what scope it will be getting? Most likely it will be Leupold. I had a friend who once bought a 300 Weatherby and asked me to help him sight it in. We mounted a Tasco world class 3x9 on it and proceeded to dial it in. 6-8 shots later the reticle looked mangled/canted in the scope?

Luckily, Cabelas took it back no questions asked and he put a Leupold Vari-x IIc 3x9 on it and we had it dialed in quickly and he had no more reticle problems. I had always been a Leupold fan but this experience just re-enforced that even more.

It will be used mostly for Elk here in Utah, but may be used for Muley's as well (have a .243 for that). Also, you never know when a coyote may line up in the sights!

I just checked my email, Weatherby cs got back to me and stated this rifle has no recall issues and that it left the factory in 2006.

I wonder how many gun shops carry stock for 12 years before making a sale?

There is no SS by the serial, but it looks like a bead blasted matte finish.

I just picked this up new in the box from a local gun store. But found that it is old stock and I'm wondering when it was manufactured ? Serial # is VS217xxx and it says Atascadero , Calif on it. It falls into the serial# range for the bolt recall, however when I entered it into the registry it says that it is not affected.

When did Weatherby move from Atascadero to Paso Robles?

It's a 300 Weatherby by the way, I went in looking for an ought 6 but when I saw the wood on this I had to have it!

Did I make a good buy? $650
