Title: Weatherby 2018 Catalog
Post by: Cbloom20 on October 01, 2017, 06:17:30 AM
Maybe I'm the last one to see it, but Weatherby's 2018 Catalog is on their website.

http://www.weatherby.com/company/catalog.html

I bought my wife the Vanguard Camilla last year and she loves it. I showed her the Mark V Camilla and she liked it until she saw the price. Lol. I don't think she has Weatherby fever just yet.

Thanks!! I was looking a little after midnight with no luck, I sure hope there's nothing new I absolutely have to buy.

As long as I'm there I might as well put in for the new paper catalog.

The MarkV Camilla Deluxe is one sharp looking rifle!!!!

Cool, thanks for the info.  I also requested a new catalog. :)  Yes, the Camilla Mk V is indeed a sharp looking rifle.

Anyone else notice the shotguns?

The pump-actions are "all gone".

The 28 gauge offering(s) are "gone".

Still no 20 gauge O/U's.

I love my PA-08 and it's good selling model for us - oh well, progress I guess...

Thanks for pointing that out, I might have to try out a box of the 140 VLD hunting ammo when it becomes available to see how my rifle likes them. It's tough reading the catalog with my iPad mini though, looking forward to the paper catalog coming.

Just looked up the magnum calibers and all the Vanguards that have the magnum calibers listed have 26" barrels. I just found something to spend my tax return on. A 257 Sporter.

It appears to me that the powers to be at Weatherby have listened to their customers and added a few things that have been asked for. I for one love the longer barrels on the Camillas. Thinking once I get my Semi Auto rifled 12g, a Mark V DGR .375 H&H that is at my local gunshop plus a new custom stock on My .460 WBY I will but myself a new Mark V Camilla in .270...

Remember back in February when the thread Weatherby Presents: I'm Camilla came out? There were a lot of opinions on how it could have been designed better, remember? You know, longer lop, 22" or 24" barrel, a #2 contour, possibly a bigger caliber, possibly a Wby. caliber, and VP Mike S chimed in and said, it is with it is, but stay tuned for the next exciting installment in October. Well enter the 2018 Vanguard Safari with the European walnut stock, Diamond cut Fleur-de-lis checkering and most of the things we were talking about, except maybe a larger choice of calibers. Great looking rifle.

Wow that is beautiful! If I wasn't about to buy a Mark V DGR in .375 H&H then I'd definitely get one of those...
Hmmm maybe rechamber the DGR to .375 WBY and then buy one of those in the H&H.....

I saw they listed the 3 vanguard models in 6.5300 but when you looked at them it was not listed in that cal.

Just got off the phone with Weatherby sales and I was told that those vanguard models are absolutely offered in 6.5-300 and that its just an oversight on the the website specs.(an email is being sent out to try and correct the problem on the website page)

I wonder why they didn't offer the Mark V Camilla in 7mm-08. If I got one for my wife, that's what I'd want to get her. Her Vanguard Camilla is a 243 WIN, so the deer sized game niche is filled. 7mm-08 would give her a little bit more "oomph" without excessive recoil. *sigh* Maybe they'll add it in later.

Thank for clarifying that Danno!

They are listening to us so that's a very good thing in my book.  Maybe we didn't get everything we wanted but at least it's a start.  Who knows maybe next year we'll see a .224 Weatherby Magnum in a Mark V Deluxe.  HINT HINT HINT
