Remember Weatherby is not making and selling match rifles, they are selling hunting rifles, and, unless they give you a written guarantee then the accuracy you should expect is "minute of" deer/elk/caribou/moose, or what ever other big game you're hunting. If it doesn't shoot that well, you have a valid gripe. If it does, or even shoots better than that, you don't.
I had a 340 WBY mag MKV that the action was machined so far off centerline that I could not zero scope without using adjustable windage bases. At first thought just drilled crooked, for bases, but centerline of action was actually off. Sold it for $475, complete rifle.(buyer was informed)
Thought about putting it in lathe and "squaring" but not worth a custom barrel to do it.
