Weatherby has long made a name for itself making ultra-high-performance sporting rifles in amazingly powerful and capable chamberings. Now, it is diving deeply into the increasingly popular 6.5mm pool.
A real theme I am spotting at the 2017 SHOT Show is the huge number of 6.5mm rifles. Weatherby is getting in on this game with many new variants of their own chambering othe 6.5 Creedmoor as well as its own 6.5-300. Yes, that is a 6.5-300 that you read. It is the .300 Weatherby cartridge, a powerhouse that is renowned the world over, necked down to a 6.5mm projectile.
I had a chance to handle several of their Mark V rifles chambered in these 6.5mm cartridges. These rifles were impressive and handled really well and lived up to the Weatherby reputation for high-quality firearms. These are some serious rifles designed for rugged outdoor use.
Price & Availability
These rifles start at $2,300 up to $2,800 and should be available very soon. I am really interested in trying some of these out for myself soon. If you want to get into the 6.5mm market and appreciate Weatherby quality, then definitely take a look.
