the 270 Weatherby Mag and the 300 Weatherby Mag were cataloged items from 1988 through 2006 in the stanbdard "B" rifle.

I see enough of both that either demand just isn't very high OR they aren't uncommon little alone rare.

I just sold a 270 made in 1988 NIB for $750 and was glad I got it.

I was looking a few minutes ago and Cabelas had three #1B is 270 Weatherby all priced right about there.

The 300s have seemed to bring slightly less over time.

#1 prices are pretty depressed right now and frankly I wouldn't pay more than $700 right now for either and I'd want good wood to boot.

These two calibers are not rare/uncommon and therefore don't demand a premium for caliber.

I have kept one of the 3 in 270 Weatherbys I bought and I like it and it shoots flat but the reality is that for hunting it doesn't do much of anything a bunch of other things don't do.

I just figured with prices being fairly low right now I'd rather sell the two extra and start looking for a West German Saur Weatherby MKV in 270 to go with my 224 WBY and my 240 WBY rather than keep more #1s in non rare calibers or configurations.

All that said, if you get into them right they are both superb hunting rifles. Just NOT all that collectable.

the best

I got a ruger no.1 b in 270 friday for 575.00 with nikon ucc 3.5x10x50 scope.
I felt that was to good of a price to pass up.

I had a gun shop but gave it up years back.
I'm still sick over ruger no. 1 i sold.
It was about 10 years ago and a man and woman came in the gun show I was at and sold me a ruger no.1 404 jeffery with a box of shells for $350.00. The next day another dealer offer me $500.00, I said ok $150.00 profit in less than a day that was great.
I will I had that gun now.
