I'm glad you guys are pleased with the performance of your Weatherbys. I really like mine. The big MK V action in the Accumark configuration is very appealing to me. One of my all-time favorites. I wanted a 30 cal with more horses than the 30-06 and wasn't ready for another Weatherby mag. (I used to have a 30-378). I was tickled to death when I discovered that Weatherby offered the 300 Win in their Accumark. I'm going after a 30-06 in the Accumark when it comes up in the batting order. It's three or four back.
The Super Varmintmaster single-shot I have in 22-250 is mind blowing in the accuracy column. I don't have high-tech, expensive bench equipment and use modest, fixed-powered scopes and it shoots really tight groups.
I wish some of the gunsmiths appreciated the MK V more, but having so little knowledge of gunsmithing, I can hardly be critical. I will quickly concede that there are better platforms on which to build custom rifles
, but you could never get me to doubt the quality of the parts and strength of the Mark V's design.
Hired Gun, when I start handloading this 300 Win, I want groups like that with some 165gr or 180gr Accubonds! Very impressive!!
