This rifle provides the craftsmanship and quality expected from a Mark V rifle only surpassed by the stunning color combination and true rugged dependability that embodies its name, Backcountry. Developed in conjunction with the Backcountry Ti, this model carries many of the same innovative technologies including a carbon fiber stock, 3D HEX recoil reducer, TriggerTech Trigger, and Accubrake ST. Implementing the new 6.5 WBY RPM, the Backcountry weighs in at a mere 5.3 pounds built on a 6-Lug receiver. Carry the Mark V Backcountry on your next adventure, and guarantee confidence in performance and dependability.

Guaranteed Sub-MoA Accuracy
All Mark V rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99 inch or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition.

Triggertech Trigger
TriggerTechs trigger provides true zero-creep break, extremely short over-travel, and is externally adjustable. Precision cut stainless steel components ensure consistent trigger pulls from shot to shot in a safe, reliable, and corrosion resistant package.

Accubrake ST
By adding an Accubrake you will significantly reduce felt recoil up to 53 percent

54 Degree Bolt
The shortest in the industry (as compared to typical 90 bolt throw). Allows for faster chambering on follow-up shots and greater bolt-to-scope clearance.

Carbon Fiber Stock
AG Composites proprietary manufacturing process provides excellent stiffness and lightweight attributes from carefully selected materials. The stocks are also impervious to environmental factors and will offer predictable, reliable performance.

3D Hex Recoil Reducer
Large caliber felt recoil dissipation provided in the lightest recoil reducer available. 3DHEX is a patent pending high strength energy diffusing lattice structure designed to distribute specific directional forces and reduce muzzle lift.

Cerakote Finish
Cerakote is the industry leading thin film ceramic coating. The Cerakote unique formula enhances physical properties including wear, corrosion, and chemical resistance while improving impact strengths, and hardness.

Technical System:

  • Fluted Barrel / Brake / Receiver / Trigger Guard - McMillan Tan Cerakote
  • Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety - Graphite Black Cerakote
  • Visible Carbon fiber stock with tan and green sponge pattern
  • Carbon fiber AG Composites stock

6.5 WBY RPM:

The 6.5 WBY RPM is based on a lengthened version of the existing 284 Winchester. This cartridge has a rebated rim, making it compatible with standard 30-06 bolt faces and reloading equipment. However, the large body diameter, low body taper, and 35-degree shoulder mean that case capacity is greatly increased, leading to higher velocities. In addition, bullet innovation in the 6.5mm category are highly efficient with less drop and wind deflection than many heavier calibers. All these details culminate into a cartridge that delivers 1,500 foot pounds of energy at 500 yards capable of ethically taking big game animals across the globe.

Suggested Use:

  • Predators
  • Small Game
  • Varmint
  • Deer
