    Sorry nvairborne308
    It is a 26'' contour #5. I had to send it back to my smith to adjust the floor plate. It had trouble feeding. I should get it back this week. I'm looking forward to breaking it in, when the weather gets nicer.
    It weighs in at 8.7/8 Lbs

    Slush,
    Thank you!! I have been torturing myself on barrel contour. When I saw yours it looks great. I hope you don't mind that I am going to steal your ideas a bit. :D Thanks again and don't forget the range report.

    Another WBY!

    Looks great, and you/your smith did a good job with weight/barrel length/contour/stock/colors. Yours is a great "blue print" for a LR Wby carry rifle.

    Be sure to post up on how it shoots for you.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I will be shooting the 168 grain SMK for practice and breaking it in, and Berger for all of my Colorado hunting. I’m going to load with Retumbo powder. As soon as things slow down and I get a nice day, I will head to the range for the break in.
