The Weatherby MK5 uses a 1.062 Dia x 16 TPI thread and tenon length is .701.
Remington uses the same threads but tenon length is different.
As far as I know there is nothing that can be used to replace the Weatherby barrel
without Lot's of work buy a smith.
If you have a good barrel and it has about 3+ inches of straight breach it can be set back
threaded to fit the MK5 and rechamberd.
