    WTS 284... Weatherby Mark 5 Ultalight.

    When it rains, it pours
    So, shortened to 20", threaded 1/2x20TPI. These are fluted, black over stainless.
    Shoots very well. I have fired 34 through it.
    I haven't pushed the loading up and or chronographed to see how fast etc. current loads are within so I don't tinker.
    This is a very light rifle, lovely to handle and it has a very good P.Decelerator pad on it. I would prefer this over everything else I've owned and shot apart from my Sako 85 which I am keeping.
    It has been used with a DPT magnum over barrel and it doesn't kick at all.
    Photos tomorrow as I'm out
    Comes with Talley 1" rings.

    $1800 or $2k with the DPT over barrel 30Cal magnum can. 1/2x20...
    Pm if interested.

    It has been modified to allow a long bolt throw and the magazine is as long as hell to allow 162's and 150AB out long.

    Haven't bothered taking any photos but can, weather is bad. If it ain't torrential it's a hurricane... Been hardly conducive to 12mm five shot groups.
    And i haven't scales but She's definitely light.

    What caliber was the rifle originally? How have you found the feeding?
