Weatherby Mark V - Weathermark LT - 257 WBY:

Weighing a mere 5.9 pounds (6-lug Action), SUB-MOA accuracy, and durable performance finish, this rifle is home in any backcountry situation. The number 2 contour fluted barrel cuts precious pounds for backpack trips. The hand-laid fiberglass Monte Carlo stock with aluminum bedding blocks gives this rifle a strong foundation to make the cross-canyon shots when the opportunity presents itself. The spiral fluted bolt body aides in the reduction of weight, and the Cerakote finish on all metalwork guarantees a life of rugged 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 Accubreak 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.

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 - FDE Cerakote
  • Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety - Graphite Black Cerakote
  • Green Hand-Laid stock with FDE speck accents.
  • Raised comb Monte Carlo fiberglass 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.
