Sorry for the long delay in a follow up on my new gun.. So here is the update.. 300 weatherby mark v KCR.. 20 moa base Nightforce ultralite 6 screw rings. nightforce nxs 5.5 x 22 x 56 mm scope... Factory weatherby shells  180 gr Accubonds..i have 40 shells thru it so far..Trigger is ok..Theres a little bit of movement before it breaks. other than that.. the fit and finish is top notch.. i'm a guy that takes forever to sight in a rifle!! Last week got it close to on at 100.. 3 shots were a little over a 1/2 in group..went today to check and see if good..fired 3 shots .. a hair under a 1/2 in group.. Couldn't be happier!! Back to back 1/2 groups .. hope to take it to ridgway pa next week and start stretching it out.. Can shoot out to 1000 yrds there.. only 25 min. from my house.

finally getting around to giving a review on my kcr.. 300 wea. mag! After spending the summer and fall shooting this rifle i couldn't be happier! Out of the box.. fit and finish were excellent.. Accuracy has been top notch!! Factory weatherby ammo 180 gr. accubonds have been outstanding..
 Tried the 180 gr. ballistictips and the accuracy was still excellent just not quit as good as the accubonds
