There’s a NOS nightforce Nav-spec scope listed on gunbroker if anyone is looking for a clone correct scope.

    I may have missed this but...

    1) on the mod 5 are the scope rail screws opened up to 8-40s or they stay stock?

    2) anyone have any detail on the mod 5 barrel profile/print or even how much they lob off the chamber end before threading/ chambering?

    1. They are stock at 8-40 on the Stiller actions. No modifications needed.
    2. Those prints are elusive. There are three guys that I know of who have their own profile that's a best guess and one gunsmith who has the real profile.

    All the Remington actions were/are opened up to 8-40 on the scope base screws. As mentioned by USMCsean, stiller actions are 8-40 from the factory.

    Thank you both, forgot the detail was for a rem700 version. I'd have been shocked if they kept them factory size but couldn't find the detail anywhere.

    I think I may just get some bar steel at this point and make a few once my suppressor gets in. I can match the collar portion diameter with the test piece and then work my way to both ends to get the correct profile/ length. Sucks this print is so hard to find.

    Keeping this thread alive into the new year.

    Is there a dedicated Mk13 (all variants) thread somewhere? If not, there should be one. Though it seems like maybe this is it here?

    It was, after the Scout thread on the 700/300 and mod1 died with Scout. Over the years, as more turn ins have shown up on the market it kind of morphed into an all things mk13 thread.

    this thread includes info on all variants. Sort of become the general mk13 thread.

    Reminds me, haven't shared some updates to one of my army mod 5s. Got a painted army-spec that pairs well with the chassis and mars.

    The initial army scopes, also seen on later mk13 mod 2's had 1 moa elevation turrets and A191 BDC dials and a USASFC reticle. Later army specs kept the same elevation turrets and BDC, but changed to MLR Reticle - essentially getting rid of the ranging element of the USASFC.

    Those aren't my Mod 0 stocks anymore, many people in this thread own them. I took these pics in 2016 when I was living in Chicago. I needed some way to efficiently bring them from the loading bay to my apartment, so this is how I moved them. Some woman saw me moving them and actually called the police! I tried selling them some stocks when they showed up, but they weren't interested.

    Look through this thread and look at the photos, you might see some of these stocks. I'm happy to have had a hand in documenting their history. I hope more people post pics of their builds, it's great to see these stocks being used and enjoyed!

    What is everyone's favorite commercial ammo for their Mk13 rifles?

    I don't reload, so I'm trying to find something available commercially that is as economic as possible (I realize .300wm isn't an economical caliber to begin with), and has good performance.

    The bigger problem right now seems to be just general availability - I can't seem to find anything other than deer ammo.

    The easy answer is...

    Start reloading!

    On .300 WM, you will pay for your whole loading setup with the first 100 rounds. Really.

    Lots of help available here! Just do it!

    Sirhr

    PS... see if you can find a "Lee Loader" in .300 Win Mag. They did make them. And that is a cheap and easy to get into loading. And they produce great ammo. You learn a LOT about ammo if you start with a Lee Loader.

    I shoot a good amount of mk248 mod 0 and Hornady 195GR ELD. Have great results with both. The Hornady tends to perform slightly better at distance.

    I had my best results with the Berger 220gr Hybrids. Unfortunatley they are no longer making this ammo. Believe it or not, the SIG 190gr Match ammo is really really good. But the old standard is the Black Hills 190gr.

    Does the mod 5 with a mars rail use the same height rings as the mod 0 with the mirs rail, or is there room to go to a shorter ring height?

    There is a user on here, they have buckets full of mk248, 190gr loose ammo. 1000rnd min shipping qty i believe. PM me and i'll transfer you over if you're interested. I forgot about it and didnt get enough local friends to cover partial of the qty.

    It's been 10mo and im still waiting back for my mk13 mod 5... can't shoot anything till
