Howdy...1st time poster....but a long time lurker Lots of great info on here. I've done quite a bit of searching on here, before posting my question below. I ran across a bargain of a buy a few months ago I couldn't pass up...and now find myself the owner of "new" never fired rifle listed below: Weatherby Synthetic Stainless 26" #2 Contour barrel 300 Weatherby Mag I'd like to squeeze the most performance I can out of it as a Western hunting rig, and wanted to obtain the boards opinion if I'm headed down the right road before I start spending some money. Stock: I like the idea of a Bell Carlson Medalist stock for the features/price point. I've called, and it sounds like I'll be able to drop my receiver/barrel assembly right into this stock. Am I going to need to glass bed this despite it having an aluminum bedding block to get the most consistency out of the rifle? Trigger: Can anyone recommend a gunsmith that could work a Weatherby trigger down to 2 to 2.5 lbs? I can't seem to find the thread that referenced a gentleman in Montana....I hate to replace it with a Timney, when I've read that these can be reworked to be great triggers. Barrel: Contour #2 and Weatherby pressure points....am I going to go backwards accuracy wise with the Bell Carlson Medalist free floated stock? It's not really in the budget right now to re-barrel it...still scope shopping! Thanks in advance for the replies.
