Several years ago, Weatherby introduced a rifle in their Vanguard line tailored to fit the female form called the Camilla with a stock designed by women hunters and shooters; it was wildly popular and Weatherby has continued to modify the rifle as demand has increased. The Camilla was introduced in the Mark V version, with all of the attributes of earlier Mark V rifles including a 6 lug action, an integral recoil lug, and fluted bolt body among other features.
This year Weatherby has added another Camilla to the line, the Ultra Lightweight in the Mark V. The first Mark V Camilla was offered in a Cerakoted finish with a Sitka Optifade Subalpine camo adorning the composite stock. This version offers women shooters a stainless-steel, 24-inch barrel with a green composite stock and spiderweb accents. It’s also equipped with a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad and weighs in at 5 ¾ pounds.
As with the earlier Camilla rifle, the stock has been designed for comfort and ease of use including a shortened length of pull (13 inches), a more slender forend, a narrower grip and a Monte Carlo-style comb.
The Camilla is chambered in .240 Wby Mag, 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win, .308 Win, or 30-06 Sprg and comes with a sub MOA guarantee when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammo. It is available now. MSRP $2,300.00
