Weatherby has created an entirely new breakthrough in rifle performance by combining their venerable, 9-lug magnum action with a stunningly-precise, carbon-fiber barrel. To make the Mark V CarbonMark a reality, the legendary American rifle maker chose the leader in carbon-fiber technology, Proof Research, to custom build their exclusive barrels chambered in .257 Wby Mag, 6.5-300 Wby Mag and .300 Wby Mag.

Adam Weatherby explains, “When looking to partner with suppliers in the outdoor industry, Proof Research was the obvious choice. They are unrivaled in carbon-fiber barrel making and we truly believe that the Mark V action, paired with a Proof Research barrel, will deliver the superior performance our customers demand.”

The aerospace-grade carbon fiber in the Mark V CarbonMark barrel has a specific strength up to 30 times stronger than stainless steel, and a specific stiffness up to 7 times stiffer. It makes the barrel up to 64% lighter than traditional steel barrels of the same contour. Carbon-fiber technology also improves heat dissipation for cooler, more consistent performance; reduced point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire; and diminished harmonic barrel vibration. The 26” #4 contour carbon-fiber barrel has a cut-rifled, hand-lapped 416R grade stainless steel core with a flush thread cap and 5/8-24 muzzle threads for easy suppressor installation. It’s finished in tactical grey Cerakote® for incredible durability.

Not surprisingly, the Mark V CarbonMark carries Weatherby’s SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee that promises .99” or less 3-shot groups at 100 yards when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. This is something the innovators at Proof Research are equally enthusiastic about. Kelly Streiff, Director of Sales and Marketing at Proof Research, says “With the craftsmanship and legacy of Weatherby, combined with technical advancements of Proof Research barrels, the CarbonMark redefines the modern-day hunting rifle.”
Like other Weatherby Mark Vs, the CarbonMark comes standard with an LXX™ trigger for a crisp, precise pull that’s critical for long-range accuracy. It also has a fluted bolt body, integral recoil lug, and a 54-degree bolt lift for fast, smooth cycling.

The stock ensures a seamless union between rifle and shooter with its raised-comb Monte Carlo design, right-side palm swell and Pachmayr® Decelerator recoil pad. For light weight and a perfect marriage with the Proof Research barrel, the stock has an aluminum bedding block and is crafted from hand-laminated composites. The matte gel-coat finish provides stealth on every hunting adventure.

The first thing hunters notice about the Vanguard First Lite big game rifle, aside from Weatherby’s legendary fit and finish, is the gun’s stock. The Monte Carlo design, complete with a right-side palm swell and textured forearm and grip areas, is appointed with innovative First Lite Fusion camo. The pattern is not a typical pixel- or tree-style variation. Instead, it’s a proprietary mix of “crackalature” shapes and colors derived through nature-based algorithms and oriented for macro and micro disruption. Simply put, the camo pattern removes an object’s outline at distances from 2-2,000 yards.

Hunters can select their Vanguard First Lite in four flat-shooting, hard-hitting Weatherby Magnum calibers (240 Wby Mag, 257 Wby Mag, 6.5-300 Wby Mag, and 300 Wby Mag) and four traditional rounds (270 Win, 308 Win, 30-06 Sprg and 300 Win). All calibers feature cold hammer-forged fluted barrels with #2 contours, finished in Flat Dark Earth Cerakote® for stealth and protection from the elements. The barrel length is 26" (28" OAL with standard Accubrake) for magnum chamberings and 24" (26" OAL with standard Accubrake) for non-magnum calibers and 240 Wby Mag.

Additional standard features on the Vanguard First Lite include a fluted, one-piece machined bolt body and fully-enclosed bolt sleeve, an integral recoil lug, hinged floorplate, 3-position safety and an adjustable match-grade, two-stage trigger that pulls crisp and breaks clean for accurate shooting. In fact, the Vanguard First Lite is so accurate that it carries a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee (.99” or less 3-shot group at 100 yards when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition).

To succeed in the wild, you must take inspiration from it. Beautiful and everlasting, and larger than life. Humble but powerful, waiting in the darkness until the time comes to ignite. To thrive in these elements you ought to be shaped by them. Refined by a million trials until finally there is no error. Only then, when all the questions have been asked, can you be enshrined among the timeless.

If the family that hunts together stays together, Weatherby proves it. Since Roy founded the brand in the mid-40s, “family” has been its cornerstone. The legacy continues today as Adam Weatherby, his wife and their two kids hit the road for a Western adventure. You’re invited.

The road trip begins July 17th on WBY-TV.com


Hunting and being outdoors with someone, it forges a relationship that can’t be accomplished anywhere else. You can learn a lot about somebody in a short amount of time that might take a lifetime elsewhere.

As Weatherby continues to expand their outreach to firearm enthusiasts nationwide, the leading manufacturer of rifles, shotguns and ammunition has hired Taylor Whitney to ensure broad, meaningful engagement with customers. Beginning January 23, 2017 Ms. Whitney became Weatherby’s new Brand Coordinator.

In her role, Whitney will work closely with Weatherby Director of Marketing Taylor Nahrgang. According to Whitney, “I’m looking forward to elevating our brand’s social media and digital expressions to reflect the refinement of Weatherby firearms.”

In addition to social media curation and management, Whitney will coordinate B-to-B and to-consumer email marketing programs, manage production of printed and digital communications (from manuals to marketing collateral), and participate in other marketing initiatives including catalog creation, website updates, video production and more.

Mr. Nahrgang explains, “Weatherby’s digital and online image is critical to the growth we intend to achieve over the coming years, and Taylor’s social media expertise is essential to ensuring our digital share-of-voice.”

Taylor Whitney, originally from Washington state, moved to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly where she graduated with a degree in Communication Studies. Prior to joining Weatherby, she was the Outreach Strategist at iFixit in San Luis Obispo. When not building the Weatherby brand, Taylor enjoys all things in the great outdoors and, naturally, is passionate about the shooting sports.

We're proud of the impressive conservation efforts our good friends at Mule Deer Foundation have accomplished, and we're happy to celebrate their organization.

I'm the next generation of grocery-getter, so forget the pink and follow the blood trail. Weatherby engineers teamed up with female hunters and shooters to design me and now that I'm here, women have a rifle built just for them. I’m the new Vanguard Camilla. Designed by women and built by Weatherby.

To be a part of the Weatherby family is really to be a part of a legacy. Roy's ingenuity, innovation and passion to drive things forward. Ed's character and integrity as a family man and man of faith. Now Adam will leave his mark and write the next chapter of the Weatherby story.

A promise made. A promise kept. More than anything else, being in the outdoors feeds Jessica Weatherby’s soul. Our latest film, Promise, shows Jessica as she experiences the culmination of a dream — elk hunting with her father.


Seven generations of Paso Robles, California farming history resides at Steinbeck Vineyard & Winery. This heritage is what drives the Steinbeck family to not only produce great wine, but their choices on how to manage their wildlife population. While others are utilizing high fences to control deer populations within their vineyards, at Steinbeck, they choose to go a different route – provide a good habitat and manage the population through hunting. And the results are some of the best tasting venison you will ever experience.
