Re: Long range scope base question
99.999% sure the Baer bases on the 700 long will work on the Wby Mk V. I had a wby mk V some time ago (accumark) in 30-378 w/Baer 20MOA taperd bases (2 peice) and to this day I use those same bases on my rem 700 and have used them on 2 different 700's. When I bought them the dealer told me the bases were the same for both actions but that one or the other needed shorter screws, otherwise you could damage something?? I dont know for sure if a 1 peice will fit due to length and such, but know for sure the 2 peice fits both actions perfect and am pretty sure the 700 long 1 peice will also work for mk v long. Hope that helps.
PS. I also know for sure that the baer bases disscussed here in this message will NOT work on any mk v that is the "light weight" or "super varmint master" versions. The front of the action is smaller.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
