Bump for a great setup.

Rifles / FS: Weatherby Mark V Accumark
« on: September 20, 2017, 06:10:49 AM »
Up for sale is a like new, 2016 model, Weatherby Mark V Accumark in 300WM. The round count is 20, it went out once to be sighted in and hasn't been touched since. It was capable of a three shot group of .383" at 100 yds with Barnes TTSX 165gr upon breaking it in and cleaning it. This thing is a laser. I have decided to run another gun I already had in my safe for my elk hunt so this is no longer needed. It'll come with a Vortex PST 4-16x50 FFP MRAD mounted in Talley LW rings. All of these items were purchased new and remain in new condition and will come with the original packaging. Asking $2100 shipped to your FFL in the lower 48. Willing to split up if the rifle sells first. Email me for any questions or for more pics.

Trades I'd consider:

* Gen 4 G19 in full FDE (non-cerakote frame) or in Battle Field Green

* KAC SR-15 Mod 1 Carbine 14.5" dimpled upper

* Labradar Chrono

* Leupold Mk4 spotting scope

* Really Right Stuff tripod setup

As expected, it looks like a shooter. Congrats Cbloom20!

Nice rifle and congrats on getting it home. Our rifles are twins, only difference is that I have the 4-16x50mm objective. Look back in the pic thread and you can see the groups I was getting with factory match loads. You are correct, the recoil is definitely noticeable but more than livable, especially when you consider that you'll rarely ever shoot more than one round when hunting. Enjoy the new boom stick!

Got a new scope for the 338-378 accumark mounted it up and headed for the range today. Got done came home and started cleaning the gun and noticed a crack in my stock. I'm assuming it's going to need replaced so what would yall go with for a stock if in my position?

Buddy purchased a new Weatherby with the B&C stock and up sighting it in he noticed a crack in the heel of the stock. He sent it off and they replaced it with a brand new stock. The entire process took less than two weeks.

Glad to hear that most of you have had good experiences with Buds, that's definitely not the case with a lot of people that I know.

Great list Tex.    There is a well known Smith/ maker and amazing shooter in Spring Texas by the name of Aaron Roberts with Roberts Precision.  He is a former vet himself and very well connected.

Aaron Roberts is an excellent smith, he's done some work for myself and few buddies in the past. Cbloom, I'll keep my eyes peeled for any associated work in the area.

Thanks danno, that's my biggest concern - the gun ending up looking like it was abused when it wasn't. I have guns over 40 years old that still look excellent, but they're blued steel, as they should be. I think Henry's finishes may be a deal-breaker. Added comment: the .357 or other big boys was another option; wondering if they don't have any finish issues. I was originally leaning much stronger towards a .22 so I could shoot it all morning for chump change and the Big Boy models also cost double the Yellow Boy .22 model.

The brass finished Golden Boys will scratch quite easily. They look great but not for long if you actually use it. My recommendation for a lever gun would include a pre-1964 Winchester 1894 or a mid 50's up to early 70's Marlin 336, preferably one with a JM stamped barrel. The 39A is in my opinion one of, if not the finest 22LR ever made. A 39A was my very first rifle and I probably ran 50K rounds through mine growing up. I'd get a 1500 round tub of ammo every month from my Great Uncle and go to town shooting every crow, black bird, squirrel, turtle, snake, and bull frog that moved. I really need to find one in great shape on GB and put it in the safe for memories sake.

I try to go to SD every year.  My best friend has about 1000 acres  12 miles from Winner, in Tripp County.  It's a beautiful country with lots of offering for the hunters.

It is indeed beautiful country. I am not sure I could hack living there year round though.

It's a long shot but I have my fingers crossed. I have spent $3600 on NFA Tax stamps over the last five years. I am tired of the ever growing wait times and giving Uncle Sam money for something that shouldn't be taxed or registered.

Mine is a HS, also!  I bought it on sale. I don't think I need a 4-16X scope on a 300 WBY.  :)

I run a Viper PST 4-16x50 FFP on my 300WM and while I could easily get by with a 10x optic I enjoy the extra power for the slight weight penalty. Vortex makes a great product at a fair price, they are no S&B, but they are no where near the price of one either haha.

Tex, where was the picture of your avatar taken?  Looks to me, like South Dakota.

You would be correct Para45, that was taken about 30 minutes south of Pierre, SD.

Too high

That's what my gut was telling me.
