If you havent seen it yet, Weatherby just released a new Mark V Apex model with a vertical gripped stock. Very interesting.

I agree with you guys about needing to handle one prior to a purchase. We were in a Cabela's store last year and I noticed a Fierce Rival with the vertical grip stock. I asked to see it and after mounting it a few times, I gave it right back. It didnt fit me at all. Length of pull and grip feel were way off for me.

I got in trouble with a slingshot when I was 10. Seems I was the only one who thought launching cherry bombs from my Whamo a couple hundred yards and then trying to look innocent was great fun.

I like this as a long range option, something cool about banging steel targets from a long ways off!

I looked at one yesterday here in Casper, in 6.5 300, I liked it. Not sure if its worth going to the 6.5 over a 7mm though.
