Great to hear they are going to take care of it.

Yes, Scott is on it! looking forward to a successful resolution to this - doing a Moose hunt with this rifle in early fall.

 Hope your problem is solved!  I'm from Canada and was hoping to not hear of the hassle you are having with Canada warranty service.

Weatherbyman22, this tightening the rear guard screw before the front guard screw is new to me.  My mentor, God rest his soul, informed me to snug both guard screws up! but torque the front first and then the rear.  I have done this for 50 years on all my rifles and it seems to work.  No real accuracy problems and the barrel Chanel spacing seems to be rather even.  I have three Weatherby Mark V's, two synthetic stocked and the other very nice piece of Deluxe wood.  I have tightened the guard screws wrong I guess, but the shot groups and barrel Chanel spacings seem to like what I did.  Is this a recommendation from Weatherby?

Looks like I'm getting a new replacement rifle from the factory.. possibly another two months wait, but it will have the new 26" barrel and an accubrake installed so that makes me happy. Can't wait to get it dialed in for Moose this fall!

I knew the problem would be taken care of as soon as USA Weatherby got involved. Glad to hear your satisfied with the outcome of your long running problem. Weatherby Customer Service comes through again. It'll be a couple of months, but be sure to let us know how that 300 Wby shoots once you get it sighted in. The 180 grain pills in Hornady, Winchester, Remington and Federal all have great cup and core soft points that'll take down a moose handily. Like I said, Good things come to those who wait. Good Luck

While I wait.. I'm going to build a new AR-15 SBR just for fun, too bad we can't do anything other than go to the range with AR's here in Canada though.

Even when if you have a good amount to of property, a good backstop and safe direction to shoot can you shoot on your own property or does it have to be on a gun range?

AR's are classified as restricted firearms in Canada.. doesn't mean you can't own one in fact as long as you have a license to own restricted weapons you can make an SBR without any additional red tape, unfortunately firearms in the restricted class can only be discharged at a licensed gun range/club.. fortunately my club is about 15 minutes away and there are several others not much more than that + I can take it to any other range in my province. Still it would be nice to take it into the woods on occasion.

Actually, I forgot... there is a work around that I have heard some guys have done. If you have the appropriate piece of property you can build a range and have it inspected by the RCMP to get it licensed and certified as such - then you can shoot whatever you want on your own range.

 Ingenuity. I like it! Stinks for you guys that you have to have that very particular set of circumstances to do something that would, without man made regulations, otherwise be a completely ethical and responsible way of hunting/shooting.  :-\

Hope the Accuguard and new build turn out great!
