Re: Building a custom out of a WEATHERBY MARK V
I have a old weather beaten MK V With a Med weight Douglas Match Barrel in 300 WBY, New barrell was added after rolling a horse in the Mtns packing an elk out 25 years ago. A friend with a known gunsmith in Colorado had it done for me. No consideration then, was made to Accurize it. I did have a muzzle break done when it was rebarrelled. It shoots to 1+ Moa most of the time. What can be done to get this to be better with, a better barrel, accurizing, Bedding, a new stock, Pillar bedding ect. I have never done anything else to this rifle, but shoot ok out to 600 yards, where it travels out too much to be an accurate 1000 yard gun at present. It seems in following this thread, it may be possible on a reasonable budget.
This is a great site, I am very new to it, and I see and am amazed with the experience and talent here!
Any advice would be appreciated, This thread is Just what I needed also!
I fully intend to also get a real long range gun in 338 - something soon. Looking at all my options now. I have talked to Shawn Carlock and may take his class and rent a rifle to check them out.
