In a quandary and need some feedback before purchasing an Elk rifle

Looking at 3 rifles with a budget around $2,200:
- Weatherby Mark V Accumark - 300 win mag
- Christensen Traverse - 300 win mag
- Fierce Fury - 7mm

I hunt in Utah at 9,000 to 10,000 feet and generally have to make a 1,000 to 2,000 ft climb over 2-4 miles to get to my hunting spot. I also hunt in areas where 400+ shots are common (my furthest elk killed was 512 yards).

Weatherby Accumark
  • I've always wanted a Weatherby -- but am I being brand foolish
  • It's heavy. I pack a heavy rifle now and would like something lighter -- but, then recoil can be an issue w/o a brake
  • Have you found they will generally shoot sub-moa
Christensen Traverse or Ridgeline
  • Is the rifle too light to shoot in 300 win mag w/o the muzzle brake
  • Heard they have some real quality control issues and as many as 1 in 4 rifles have to be sent back for repair. Of course, that might be internet gibberish.
  • But, I've also heard they can easily shoot sub-0.5 moa when there aren't barrel issues
  • And, their customer support is excellent -- so CA will fix the issues
  • Seems like excellent value
Fierce Fury
  • Heard amazing things about the accuracy of Fierce rifles -- 0.5 moa guarantee and folks seem to be getting that
  • But, can't find it locally in 300 win mag -- can buy a 7mm rem mag
  • 6.4 lb rifle so nice to pack in and I think 7mm recoil would be very manageable w/o a brake
  • I think I'm OK with 7mm but have historically shot 338 win mag and 300 win mag with 200gr to 250gr bullets
  • All my reloading gear is 300 win mag -- so will have to purchase dies, brass, bullets, etc (this is the big hesitancy given how hard it is to find ammunition or reloading supplies)

These guys are local to you right?

They have a scoped 300 wm for sale. A bit above your budget I'm sure but ready to hunt...

Yea ... they're about 5-6 hours south which I really like if I need support!!!

But, the direct price from them is outside the budget -- wife isn't going to let me spend $5-6K. I can pick up the 7mm at a local store for under $2100.
