Dave Young of Young's Gunsmithing is very well versed in Wby Mark V rifle rebarreling. He is in Tracy Montana east and south of Great falls. But I think his mailing address could be SanCoulee (sp?) Just don't be in a hurry, I always ask for a completion date...

I've only heard good about Dave Young and He's doing a 300 RUM build for me on a R700. He likes Mark V actions and has probably worked on hundreds of them, maybe thousands, and he is also 30-378 fan. He tried to talk me into one but I opted for the 300 RUM. He probably has as much experience and knowledge of the Weatherby's and Mark V's as anyone.
