Description Technical Info
 
Weatherby Mark V - Hunter - 24.0" - 6.5 Wby RPM:

The new Mark V Hunter is also fitted with a freshly-designed stock. Echoing the shape and ergonomics of the Mark V Backcountry 2.0 family of rifles that debuted earlier in 2021, the Hunter's polymer stock features the same trim, flat-bottomed forend, ambidextrous palm swells, aluminum pillar construction and is finished in a Granite Speckle.

T
he Mark V Hunter's barreled action is sealed under a shell of Cobalt Cerakote, shielding it from the elements. A deeply-fluted bolt with removable knob not only trims a little weight and helps clear dust and debris, it also reduces the bearing surface within the action resulting in smoother operation.

Designed to be the world's strongest action, the Mark V has a signature multi-lug bolt system inspired by the interrupted thread style of lockup. Available in both Standard and Magnum action sizes, the Standard employs a six lug design while the beefier Magnum uses nine locking lugs, enabling these actions to safely chamber the hottest commercially-available cartridges on the market. Other safety features include three rings of steel around the base of the cartridge when it's in battery, a fully-enclosed bolt shroud and three gas relief ports in the bolt body to vent pressure in the case of an ammunition failure.



Guaranteed Sub-MOA Accuracy

All Mark V rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of 0.99" or less at 100 yards (Sub-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition.

TriggerTech Trigger

TriggerTech's 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.


Cerakote

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.

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.

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
