I have owned tons of weatherby's, if your rifle is not shooting well you need to try a different bullet or clean the heck out of it with bore tech eliminator. I will add I have owned two ultra light weights and I am not a fan of them, especially in 300 wby. They can shoot good, but you need to wait 15 or 20 minutes between shots. That thin barrel with a magnum cartridge heats up fast. Most of mine would shoot good for the first shot then send one flier.
As for the accuracy of the Mark V action. It was my choice for my custom build in .338 Lapua and I am very pleased with its accuracy and took a WT doe at 1137 this year.
