My 300 WSM Sub Moa has lived up to its name and then some. I did install a Timney trigger to improve the break and weight of trigger. I also fire lapped the barrel with David Tubb's Final Finish, using mostly the 3, 4 and 5 grit bullets to improve the rifles accuracy. My reloads that have been most successful on paper and game have been Hornady  BTSP 190 grain, pushed by 60 grains of H4350 extreme, ignited by Win Large Mag Primers.. I have a Leupold European 4-14 scope with a custom Leupold mil dot reticle that is mounted with Leupold QR bases and rings. This is a one hole shooter with this combo, very accurate to my effective range of 400 yards and in.

I have a Vanguard Sub-MOA in 7MM Rem Mag. It lives up to its name but I did have to work on the trigger. It does not like lighter bullets with 160 gr proving to be the most accurate. Its really not picky about what type or brand of bullet but Sierra Game Kings and Nosler Accubonds are the best, shooting a .5 inch or smaller. Its funny it does like the cheaper factory ammo over the high priced factory stuff. Federal, Remington and Winchester, power soft point type ammo works well. I couldn't ask for a better mule deer and elk rifle.

My SUB-MOA is .338 Win Mag. It took me a bit to find the right load for it,but the gun performs as advertised. The Barnes 225gr. TSX is the most accurate,so far ;D.  I`m very happy with the trigger,too.   Well done,Weatherby!

270 WSM SubMOA,.... Mine shoots the dingleberries off flies!  I want to upgrade the glass this year to a 3-9x40 Nikon Monach from the Nikon Prostaff that I currenlt have on it.  I do handload for it, the commerical 270 WSM from Federal shoots well in the 140 gr.  I have 130 gr. SST's  doped in and touching each other at 100 yds.  I also had it hydrodipped by Bell & Carlson Realtree HD Green.  It looks good and is better in the Northeast than the tan siperweb is.  I did shoot w/ an Accubreak for a while, but its really not needed for the 270 WSM (recoil is no worse than a 30-06), it adds length and a whole lot of decibells.  I have a photo of it in Trophy Room.  The round itself is a whitetail slayer.   
There are as many answers to that one as there are reasons men hunt, fight, skydive, gamble or take up with redheaded ladies.

I bought my new 300 Mag Vanguard SMOA a new Christmas present and it was 1 of the toughest buys i have had lately but it will now wear a new Swarovski 5-25x50 Z5 BT Plex and i have that grin action going on again? This rifle should be set up nicely now and all i need is some Warne bases and rings!

I a word outrageous.  I had mine a bit customized.  The stock was hydro dipped by Bell & Carlson in Real Tree Green, it has an Accubreak (which I do not hunt with) and I have it topped with a Nikon Monarch UCC 3-9X40 BDC with Talley Bases and Rings.  I worked up a load with Ramshot Magnum powder, CCI 215 primers, Federal Brass and Sierra Gamekings 130 grs that drops whitetails in their tracks.  This is the ultimate hunter.
