Good afternoon All,

I just picked up a Weatherby Mark V Synthetic 6 lug in 7mm-08. I'm looking to do a couple of things to it, one being to drop into a new stock. Does anyone know what the barrel countour is? A #1 or #2. Thinking about a Boyd's or another B&C.

Back up to 3 Weatherby's again, feels good and may have to make room for another :D

Thank you,

Chip

not to argue with purplefox66, but I'm pretty sure your Mark V Synthetic 6 lug in 7mm-08 will have a #1 contour barrel, the same as my 240 Synthetic 6 lug. The 6 lug accumark's had the #3 contour barrel, and the 9 lug Synthetic's had the #2 contour barrel(except for the 30-378 and 375 H&H with had #3 contour barrels)

Thank you guys. I'm not arguing either as I asked the question, but definately not a 3. I just didn't know if a 1 or 2. If I go with a Boyds, I can always open up the barrel channel.

I have a stainless 20" carbine in 7mm-08 and a 280 rem ULW, actually thinking about sending this to Hart and making it something a bit different. Haven't truly decided yet. The price was so right, it gives me some room for options.

The Ultra Light's wore #1 contour barrels. Your rifle is almost certainly wears a #2 barrel contour. I've never had a problem with the accuracy from a #2 barrel. The loose nut behind the scope is the one with all the pressure of the shot.

Oddly enough, you have to unwind it somehow. I recommend a quiet place, a glass of Terminatorís Bulleit bourbon and some Merle Haggard.

I had my gf copy this from a weatherby catalog, and send it to me last night. Like I said in my previous post, it shows the 6 lug synthetic in 7mm-08 having a #1 contour barrel.  I'm not saying some didn't have the #2 contour barrel, just every 6 lug synthetic or stainless I've seen,had the #1 contour barrel, including the one I own. It also show, your stainless carbine having a #1 contour barrel, just compare them both to if there any size difference in barrels.

Thank you Guys. CS, thanks for the pages and all good.

I sent an email to Boyds and they can't tell me if their stock will fit a 6 lug action. I'm a bit surprised. They just say a factory countour Mark V long action. Based on my reference material, that's a 9 lug action. I do like the look of some of their laminates and reason why I was considering.
