New Weatherby Mark V Terramark RC Rifles

Weatherby

Weatherby announced a new line of rifles called the Mark V Terramark RC.  The RC stands for “range certified” and will come with a sub-MOA guarantee.

The fluted barrels will be made of stainless steel and will use button rifling.  The 26″ barrels will be free floating and will have a target crown.  Rifles will have a desert camo finished Monte Carlo synthetic stock with a Pachmayr Decelerator pad.  Metal will be finished in Cerakote flat dark earth.

Rifles will weigh 8.75 pounds, and pricing will start at $2,800.  The guns will come with a factory test target signed by Ed Weatherby, the company president.

    Great. Another grossly overpriced Weatherby product, just what the world needed.

    Pass.

    Weatherby really should consider splitting their product line. They’ve got some of the most powerful dangerous game cartridges around, but they build rifles on their proprietary nine-lug push-feed action that won’t fly with DG hunters.

    The cheapskate crowd loves to slam everything they can’t afford. I have owned most of the spectrum of bolt action rifles at one time or another. Make no mistake. Weatherby’s are a bargain at their prices. Made in USA, Zero compromise and should be compared to Blaser and other high end European rifles. Not big box store junk. Just the time to do the Sub MOA testing takes time and quality control is second to none. Also, if you have a problem, someone’s going to pick up the phone & take care of you like a member of the family. I own a Mark V and it’s without peer the best bolt action rifle I’ve ever owned and will last generations.

      You said it! This also applies to Weatherby’s “standard-issue” line, i.e., the Vanguard series. I have one in .300 Weatherby Magnum and another in .308 Winchester, the former set up as a sniping rifle with a Witt Machine muzzle brake, Blackhawk Knoxx Axiom recoil-reducing stock and Sims Limb Saver buttpad, the latter equipped simply with a Limb Saver buttpad. Both shoot consistently at 0.4-0.5 MOA at 100 meters with a scope, and while I am a decent marksman, I am far from being the best. Another shooter could probably do better under the same exact circumstances with the same set-up. I should also add that both guns have been utterly reliable and functionally consistent under extremely harsh field conditions.

      I don’t disagree that Weatherby could possibly be guilty of “making book” on the basis of their reputation when it comes to a new product such as the Terramark RC, but then again, so is everyone else — Savage, Remington, Marlin, et al, included. Frankly, I do think the Terramark is over-priced relative to its features and that one could do better with a Mark V or Vanguard, just as one could do better for one’s money with the Remington and Savage equivalents.
