Never been much of a Weatherby fan, you may have changed my mind. Very nice rifle, and the pictures are very persuasive. Thanks.

I have an old Mark V in 300 Wby, rebarrelled after a horse accident many years ago in the high country of the Madison Range in MT packing out an elk. This thread wants to make me re-barrel fit or a 338 Edge or Lapua. Great Thread and information. Show us more when you can.

Re: Straight Shooter Supply 338 Lapua Mark V

300 gr OTM, 88 grains of H1000, F215M, COAL of 3.705, 5th firing, annealed, SS media tumbled, loaded round concentricity held to .0015 or less. Charges trickled to a single kernal on a balance beam. ES of 14 fps for 5 shots.

Tried everything I knew to get the 300 Accubonds to go...but my lot of 'em and this rifle didn't like each other. Only thought to check 'em after the first 50 flew like frisbees.

First three loads with the OTMs...winner winner chicken dinner.

200 yds. Bipod. Rear bean bag.


100 yds. Bipod. Rear bean bag. 6 shots. Two shooters, three rounds each. One shooter has never shot off a bipod/rear bag, this is his initial group after some brief instruction. The other shooter shoots like a rookie, but has many rounds downrange at distance now (me LOL) No break between shots or shooters. Probably 90 seconds to shoot all six rounds.


With the 10 MOA cant of the Near Base, I run out of Elevation knob with this load around a mile with South Central Alaska enviros.

So all in all...pretty darn happy with the way this rifle turned out. The 15-16 lb LMAI and Excalibur are still easier to shoot at 1000+ for first round hits...but this rifle makes a great compromise for it's weight and overal length.

Straight Shooter Supply has my nod as a very capable Mark V precision rifle smith.

Re: Straight Shooter Supply 338 Lapua Mark V

I hope to have a ELR worthy digiscoping solution figured out shortly...have tried all kinds of different combos...and am close to a budget minded/smart phone easy solution for the Vortex HD with the 30x MOA eyepiece. It's nothing mind blowing, but the MOA reticle to size/spot targets and corrections, and the use of a smartphone to capture video...it's what I've been after. So hopefully in the next month or so, I can get some sub 1 MOA rock video at 1300-1700yds up in this thread with this rifle.
