Absolutely fell in love with this rifle. I have it chambered in 300 Wby Magnum and was able to harvest a Whitetail buck with it this rifle season. Between the muzzle break and recoil pad the recoil is extremely mild for caliber, barely kicks harder than my lightweight .308 MarkV. I couldn’t ask for anything more from this rifle or company. Thank you for a wonderful product yet again !

The Mark V Backcountry Carbon has quickly become my favorite rifle! I have this rifle chambered in 6.5RPM. I went with the Carbon version because I also have a Carbonmark in 6.5 Creed and the BSF barrels are AMAZING! The Backcountry Carbon does not disappoint. The fit and finish is perfect, as you would expect from a $3,000 rifle. The Peak 44 stock is amazingly lightweight, very rigid, and very comfortable. The rifle balances very well and while it is quite light, it is still very easy to shoot well. The Trigger Tech trigger is fantastic. I broke the gun in with Wby Select Plus ammo with the 127 LRX. Velocity was a little less than advertised initially, but accuracy is just over 1/2MOA with 400 yard groups at 2.25″ for 5 shots. Handloading 121Gr. Hammers 100 yard groups are in the .3s with 400 yard groups under 1.5″! If I were going to build my ultimate custom, it would be the Backcountry Carbon.
