Bore guides????

For those with SIX-lug MkV actions .... what bore guide are you using.  I cannot find one that locks into place properly.  I have three six lug rifles and NEED a bore guide for them ....
Thanx in advance

I own a six lug 7mm-08 and am intending to buy bore guide no. 18 by Possum Hollow from www.midwayusa.com/.  As I have not ordered it yet, I cannot vouch for it fitting your rifle.  There is a bore guide chart listed and it says the no. 18 will fit a MK V in 7mm-08, 308, 30-06, and .270 http://www.midwayusa.com/midwayusa/staticpages/pdf/Chart_PDFs/EJS_Bore_Guide_Chart.pdf  Hope this helps.  I have been using a bore snake up until now.

Just wanted to let the folks coming here know- After reading the above, I actually ordered the Possum Hollow #18 bore guide & it definitely is not compatible with my 6-lug action Weatherby in 270 Winchester or 338-06. The #18 has a diameter which is far to large to fit the action.
Just trying to save other people from wasting their hard earned money-

Welcome to the Nation! You had to dig pretty deep to find that post, but maybe you did save someone the misery of ordering the wrong parts. Thanks for the heads up.

Dewey has several Weatherby bore guides and can make a custom diameter version if not standard. 
270 WM Deluxe (USA)
270 WM Accumark
7mm WM Deluxe (Japan)
7mm WM Accumark
22-250 Varmintmaster (Japan 24)
224 WM Varmintmaster (Japan 26)
22LR Tubular (Japan) x 2

Yes, I am attempting this route now. I currently have Possum Hollow & Sinclair's guides for all my rifles and wanted the same style for the Weatherby, but we'll see how the Dewey works out.
