I also like the new WBY..........BUT I already have a .300 & .257 Wby and shoot a 30-06 & 25-06 too. At my age I would like a lighter rifle, but I think I'll carry around the extra weight and save the money for hunting trips.I bought a model 700 Remington Special in 300 Weatherby back in 1988 I think it was. Cost me around $400. I saw this video and it got me curious - so I looked it up on gunbroker.com. $3200 and some change. Really nice gun, but I think I'll carry the extra 3-4 pounds for a while longer.
