History of Weatherby
Ultra-high velocity, magnum ammunition is how Roy Weatherby got started in the 1940s. He revolutionized the industry with his fast, hard-hitting loads that were dead-on accurate. Today, those same performance qualities are every bit a part of Weatherby cartridges. Weatherby’s intention is a constant progression for ballistic superiority with new and impressive cartridges that perform and meet expectations attached to the Weatherby brand.
By 1958, Roy identified shortcomings in bolt-action stocks so he designed his own for exceptional fit, balance, and identifiable style. With Weatherby’s hot cartridges, there came a need for a bolt-action capable of handling the magnum power, and then the Mark V action was born. With up to nine locking lugs and “overbuilt” craftsmanship, the Mark V design remains the strongest bolt-action rifle today. Looking for bolt-action rifle deals?

Throughout the years, Weatherby’s brand has continued to grow through the making of their various shotguns, .22 rimfire rifle (Mark XXII), and scopes. For hunters loyal to non-Wetherby calibers, Roy introduced the Vanguard rifles in 1970. These are chambered for some of the world’s most popular big game and varmint cartridges. New Vanguard models are still coming out today.
Now, the Weatherby company has relocated to Wyoming and have released a brand new line of Mark V rifles, along with the Vanguard Camilla in 2016, made with female shooters in mind. After years of innovation and development, the release of the 2019 Mark V Backcountry Ti and 6.5 WBY RPM combination achieves the weight savings, ballistic performance, and price that cannot be found in a production rifle anywhere else.

Weatherby was put on the map by the accuracy and performance of Weatherby ammunition. In 2016, Weatherby ushered in a new era in ballistic superiority by introducing both a new cartridge and a new caliber of bullet to the Weatherby line. The 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum is the fastest production 6.5mm there is. Combined with high Ballistic Coefficient (BC) projectiles designed for long-range shooting, the velocity of the 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum opens a whole new world of possibilities and provides hunters with the terminal performance every Weatherby shooter is accustomed to. Roy Weatherby’s personal favorite, the 257 Weatherby Magnum, travels 3,870fps with an 80-grain bullet. This gives you the flattest trajectory of any 25 caliber rifle in the world. Suitable for long-range varmint shooting but this is ideal for big game hunting. Another super popular type of ammunition is the 270 Weatherby Magnum,. This ammo is a turbo-charged version of the popular 270 Winchester. In 1945, Roy Weatherby shortened the 300 H&H Magnum. Blew out the body, necked it down to accept a 270 bullet, and gave hunters a flatter shooting, harder-hitting 270. This is ideal for long-range and medium-sized game.
