Can,t seem to find wood stock .270 wby.mag. in Alberta.
Thinking of going to 7mm.mag.can probably find alot easier.Not sure
whether or not making rt.choice.Just not sold on syn.stock.
Old school kind of guy and stubborn just don,t like the feel
of syn. Good choice of going to from .270 to 7mm. just going
to have to readjust kind of gun Ican get.

Trying to find any wood Weatherby in the tactical days were in is hard. Good wood is hard to find any day and its getting worse. I was looking for a DLX 460 and just got laughed at by multiple people. Told to look at gun shows and hope people loose their jobs and have to sell a few etc. Pretty grim. I gave up looking. I think if you want one its worth a hard hunt as some nice wood is way better in my mind than a synthetic. I wish I could walk in to a store and pic between two or three stocks though as some wood appeals more than others. Good luck with your hunt.

Yes,it is very hard to find wood stocked wby's in this area(Alberta and Saskatchewan),few dealers bring them in any more,because few people want wood stocks any more.Wholesale Sports and Russell Sports did have a few,but don't know if they still do.I have both 270 Wby and 7mm Wby,if your shooting elk and moose the 7mm is alittle better because of the 160gr and 175 gr bullets.But the 270 Wby really shines on those long shots on mule deer and sheep.Both are very good calibers.

    be a problem thought.
