    Weatherby Mark-5 Accu-Mark .338/.378 with Kahles 3.5-10x50 Multi-Zero Scope An amazing long-range elk, moose, and bear rifle! The factory muzzle-Brake completely tames the recoil. This is the ultimate North American Big-Game rifle. It's been devastating on elk! Kahles 3.5-10x50 Multi-Zero...

    Hey guys, I have a, what I consider to be, very nice Weatherby Vanguard Series II Sporter (Blued + Walnut Stock). It's got a leather sling and a Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40 on Leupold Low Rifleman Scope Rings. It's been a pretty good rifle so far with 1 exception. I get a really crummy cheek weld...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Has anyone bought one of the series 2 yet? I heard about this rifle a couple of months ago, and still havent found a decent review on it. I find it almost unbelievable that Weatherby is offering a sub-moa rifle for $489 msrp. Cheaper than dirt has them for sale at $440, but I havent seen them...
