Ok, so my question for all you rifle gurus out there is: would the accuracy of my Weatherby Mark V Ultralight in .240 Wby. Mag. improve to any noticeable degree if I tried to modify my stock to make the barrel free-float? Is there any feasable way of achieving this without royally screwing up my rifle?

Also, anyone have any clues as to why Weatherby doesn't offer their sub-moa guarantee for the .240 Wby in any format?

Don't have one but considering any ultra light rifle is designed to make one good shot and basically be easy to pack into mountains etc. They aren't required to offer sub moa 3 or more shots in a row. Light barrels heat up fast and will not offer the same shot to shot accuracy of rifles with a medium or heavy barrel. Not that they aren't accurate...they are plenty accurate for their intended purpose = hunting.
