Oh, and quit shooting 5 shot groups.

2 or 3 would be best. This is a large magnum and you are wasting barrel life and getting it too hot.

Thanks Broz.
The trigger already has the different springs in it. I'm not sure if the action is bedded or not. I'll have to check it out. When I shot the 5 shots I shot 3 then let it cool for a few minutes then shot the other two. I will stick to the 2-3 shot groups though. What did you get for barrel life?

I did wear one out at about 1200, but was hard on it. My other two I sold before they were gone. I know one of them has about 800 or so through it and still shoots good. The new owner only shoots about 50 rounds a year so it will last him a long time.

Ok. This one is supposed to have about 300 rounds down it, so I should be good for a while.
Where's a good place to get a rail for one of these?

Thanks again for all of the help.

The top of the line for a Mark V is Near Mfg. Expect to pay $150 to $174 for the rail. But the fit will be second to none.

I just got more good news. I emailed the guy I got it from, and he said it is already bedded and free floated.
