Nice looking rifle.

Got a email from Weatherby today, imagine most of us got it. New Camilla as well.

Mark V Camilla Ultra Lightweight looks nice.
But I was hoping to see the 7-378 announced too, maybe I was misinformed last spring.

I would like one but was looking at a Vanguard Wilderness at the gun shop the other day and talked to him about trading my Winchester Model 70 in on it. The Winchester is a beauty but almost to nice for me to carry in truck. It's got a lighter trigger then I like as well.

The Wilderness looks nice also. Sure you couldn't go wrong with either. What caliber are you going to get?

Love my Wilderness in .240WBY. I tend to shy away from getting the exact same gun in different cals but have thought often about how useful another Wilderness would be in .270win. I say go for it! (Maybe keep the Model 70 too!  ;D ;D)

I would like to see that in a .270 WSM. Reminds me a lot of my 300 WSM Browning X Bolt Hells Canyon Speed but less expensive. The only reason I can think of for now wanting one is I don't have room for a bigger safe in my gun room, LOL.

Yea I got a friend that figures I should keep the Winchester but it was just a nice rifle, no memories and it would bother me not to use it. ???

Thatís why you have to bite the proverbial bullet and go make a meaningful scratch on that gun! (I get what youíre saying though)

Why don't you give it to your Grandson? I am sure he would love it and be big enough to shoot it soon.

That is an idea, his Dad shoots the same rifle in 300 Win Mag, although I could start him out right and give him my Weatherby when he is old enough. :D
