Perhaps some of the lack of enthusiasm comes from poor marketing. They are being marketed as entry level rifles and nobody wants to go hunting with their longtime hunting bud's with an entry level rifle. The fact that you could buy one at Walmart didn't help matters either. Walmart is out now so maybe they've seen the light. What also may be hurting them is folks tend to think of them as Howa's and not Weatherby's.

Decisions, Decisions, I was going to trade my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight .270 on  a Vanguard Wilderness in 270 but it was sold before I could get back to the gun shop. I know my buddy and some on here said to keep the Winchester so I decided I would keep it and give it to my Grandson when he comes of age as his Dad shoots the same rifle in 300 win mag.
 So I was keeping the Winchester but I saw a Browning BLR 243 used at the gun shop. Well that could do double duty as a deer rifle and a Varmit truck gun, swung by the gun shop on the way home from the dentist the other day, Dang the BLR was sold. I was coming down with a cold and was tired so I didn't look at anything while there. When I got home I was checking out what a couple other gun shops had on hand, nothing really interested until I saw a Ruger compact. Then it came to me, the place where I like to support had a Weatherby Vanguard Volt 243 Youth, it said on the listing.  It's a Vanguard synthetic compact that has the shims to change LOP but the Volt is Black and Green web stock. Well now I have a rifle for my Grand daughter when she comes of age.
 My buddy suggested a Vortex Viper 6.5x20 44mil, they were on sale for $469 so that's waiting for to get back up to pick them up, can't wait.

I filled out a  Application for accuracy shooter at Weatherby.com

Chris, Your welcome to hunt up here some year when you have time. $160 for a non-resident Wisconsin  deer license isnt bad and $20 for a bonus doe tag. Saw 5 does and 1 large buck, couldn't get the 340 up in time for the buck, he was hot on a does trail. Doe tag can wait a few days, 12° this morning with a stiff West wind.

Had mountain house last year. They take a lot of water, lots of salt and they are expensive. Lots of them are vegetarian. They do taste good and have great shelf life. MRE's can be eaten right out of the pouch if need be. So far, no real complaints about taste that I heard so often from others.  :)
He shot one and then let his brother take a shot at a doe. Guess he shot twice. Daniel told him if you had the crosshairs on it you hit it. He said yeah, I missed. Fyi, 100 grain NBT’s will create a 6” exit hole on the neck of a deer.
