Hi All, New to the forum, and thought I would ask a question. Does anybody know of any 'smiths that will do a custom build using a Weatherby Mark V action? Will they blue print the action and true everything up? I've heard that the Mark V action can be really difficult to do this to and that is why not many poeple use them for accurate custom builds. Never been a real fan of the remy actions because of the bolt throw and I've shot Weatherby's for years and years and its what I am used to...freebore and all. I would be open to another custom action type as long at it doesn't have more then a 60 degree throw. I'm looking at building up a lightweight mountain rifle for backpack sheep hunting and cross canyon shots. Not too interesting in lugging a 14 lb rifle around given the way I hunt and the type of country. I was thinking of something of the lines of 300 wby or maybe a 30-378 wby with a ABS carbon barrel to reduce weight. Maybe you guys have another opinion of flat shooting calibers as well? The problem is that I have the urge to build something up, but don't really know what I want other then a lighweight backpack mountain rifle. Maybe I should just keep it easy and go with the 300 wby utralightweight...... What is the concensus?
