I am here to find out more information on building a long range 300 weatherby off a mark V action that I just picked up. I know a 700 is probably better to build off of but I didn't want to take my 300 H&H apart and didn't want to shell out the money for one either. And I happened to come across a 300wby mark V german made for a steal. I will be reloading for the gun, I plan on getting a Lilja barrel, trigger, stock, scope, and break. I also plan to have the action bedded and blue printed. If anyone has any great info they are willing to share I am all ears!! Gun Build: .300wby Mark V action 28 in Lilja Barrel (do I need to go longer? also what contour?) Timney/ or jewel trigger Bell & Carlson stock (would like a mcmillan but to pricey) Leupold scope (would like a vx6 but not going over $1k) Vias break I know this is a super long first thread but if you have made it this far thanks in advance for the patience and time regarding this matter. Please let me know anything that I have missed or that may help. To credit my shooting so no one takes shots at me....I've taken probably 20+ big game animals between the reanges of 400-550 yards with one shot (all with tika 300wm). So I do know a little bit about shooting. That being said I am still very young and have a lot to learn.
