I just purchased two new hunting rifles-one was the new weatherby Vanguard S2. Weatherby says it will shoot 1 MOA right out of the box. After taking it to the range this New Years weekend, I would have to say mine lived up to it. Bought it in .308 and it did kick a little more than I was expecting, but this was my first synthetic stocked rifle so that could have made some difference.
The other new rifle was a Mossberg 4X4 in 7mm Rem Mag. I fully expected the Weatherby to shoot well, but was really surprised at the Mossberg. It out shot the Weatherby hands down, and with the factory muzzle break on it the recoil was much less than the .308 Weatherby. I really like both rifles but the Mossberg was a definite good choice.
