Weatherby makes make up for this drop with a higher comb. Since your shoulder is what absorbs the recoil the straighter stock of something like the Tikka helps to reduce the felt recoil by creating a straight shove versus a back & down shove.
And, like JaydenH mentioned, most factory rifles of decent manufacture are well capable of sub MOA accuracy.
I have not found the Weatherby stock configuration to be a problem. Actually it takes some of the bite off the cheek bone as the recoil shifts the stock rearward the comb slides down the cheek.
Yes, most modern rifles will shoot an moa and a few will shoot a solid sub moa. It is a buyers' market for firearms if a person choses carefully.
