I personally, have never seen an Mark V Alaskan, just heard about them, they were not that common here.  But after doing a little research, I would agree with you about your stock.  8)

now that I think about it, some of the Mark V Alaskan's might of had straight cheek piece stocks, but the action, receiver and barrel was nickel plated.

This is pretty cool actually, I like the diesel, I wonder if it has locking diff's.  8)

How about pictures of the Weatherby end cap?

+1 ,  I never seen a factory weatherby synthetic stock with a straight cheek piece before, all had the monte carlo design stock. But there is a first time for everything.

great looking rifle,  8) and great caliber(I have 3, 270 WBY's  ;) )  I don't know what brand of after market stock it has, but as long as it fits both you and the rifle well, it looks alright.

 
After a thorough cleaning like that be aware you may need a couple of fouling shots before the barrel settles down. I would try the 2 you have now before getting the 140's. Good luck.

I agree with what Roger posted,  also since your moving back to California, you might want to try the factory Barnes 130 gr TTSX load. I found the old factory 130gr TSX load, accurate in all 3 of my 270 Wby's.

If you dont reload, and just use factory ammo, keep all your once fired empty brass. With a little research, there are people who will buy Weatherby brass for $1 a piece,  and it helps offset the cost of shooting factory ammo.  8)

I save them in a file on my laptop, then I click the "upload image and other options" link just below this chat box, select the ones I want, then upload them to here. I've never had any trouble posting pic's here.

The ammo that has Nosler on it will be loaded with nosler partition bullets as well. I have never uploaded pic from a phone on here, so I can't help you with that. I save the pics from my phone to my laptop, then click on the "upload image or other options" link just below this chat box, and then upload my pics to here.

That is one hell of a Ibex in your avatar pic  8)

looking at that pic in the link, that ammo with those darker colored primers, that's loaded in that rifle, sure looks like plain old Winchester Super X.

Optics / Re: 416wby scope
« on: June 10, 2018, 10:36:11 AM »
That 1.5-6x42 would be more than enough for a 416. In fact I would think it has to much magnification. I would rather a dangerous game scope on it something like a 1-4x20, or at the most something like a 1.5-6x32 or 2.5-8x36.
But hey that's just me. If you like the fit and feel of that bigger scope on it then that is what you should go with.

+1 on what Brett posted, I have 1.5-6 scopes on all my rifles 375 and larger.  8)

I don't think you notice the recoil, my only thought would be "RELOAD"

hahaha  ;D  I seen a side by side rifle in 30-06 in Europe, I don't recall what brand it was. They told me, a lot of them like using them for boar hunting. I never tired shooting it, but it would be cool to own one.  8)
