Buy a Vanguard 2 .257 Wby. I paid $425 for mine with one of the decent stocks on it.
I paid $299.99 for a nib Vanguard, chambered in .257 Wby, @ my lgs last year. True, it wasn't the latest "2" version and it came with a synthetic stock and a 24" barrel (I would have preferred a barrel a trifle longer to take full advantage of the Weatherby cartridge but I think the same can be said for the 25-06 cartridge) but, like some others who have posted previously, I think getting a new rifle, chambered in the .257 Weatherby Magnum, makes more sense (at least economically), than it does to rechamber and modify your present rifle to take the same cartridge.
