Weathermark or Accumark??

Weathermark or Accumark??
« on: April 18, 2018, 03:26:53 PM »
Looking to purchase a new Weatherby. I currently own a Accumark 300 and going to purchase a 257. Love my Accumark but like the idea of the Cerakote barrel on the Weathermark. Any thoughts??

Canít go wrong! The Accumark is an insanely good rifle. I have a Weathermark in .257WBY and it is my go-to deer rifle. It has been sub-moa with all 3 loads I have run through it. I also like the cerakote.

Iíd say it'd depend on the kind of hunting/shooting you plan to do. The Accumark has a heavier and fluted barrel which makes it great for shooting lots of shots on the range, but a but burdensome to carry. If you have a stand you're planning to hunt out of rather than walk around a bunch, I'd go with the Accumark.

The Weathermark is about a pound lighter, and the cerakote will protect against the weather/perspiration on the outside, but the metal is chromemoly, so if the rifle gets soaked or the cerakote gets damaged, it'll still rust faster than the Accumark on the inside/under the damaged coating.

Personally, I just bought a stainless rifle and am having it cerakoted. I guess I'm a belt and suspenders kind of guy...

 If you go through Buds Gun Shop, the difference in price between the two is just under $400 dollars and in 257 Wby the difference in weight is only 1/2 lb.(not much to gain) I'd vote with BB and Cbloom, Accumark and Cerakote lol.
