Congratulations on the antelope, and sorry to hear about the loss of your pup. Still miss the long walks with my Golden Retriever in the Northern Minnesota grouse woods. Getting old stinks, but losing your dog is worse!!

The Mark V has been made in Germany, Japan, and the USA. Mark Vís are currently produced in California.

I guess it would be kind of cool to get one of the early Weatherby's assembled in Wyoming but they will still be Japanese Howa manufactured so I don't know if there will be any way to actually tell except by knowing the first serial number sent there.

The Vanguards are made in Japan, while the Mark V's are made in the USA.

Pretty sure the Mark V's all say made in Japan on them also.

Terminator, this is the first rifle I have purchased in 35+ years. After a lot of research I purchased a 6.5 CM. Used the Hornady GMX as it shot the flattest. (Pretty open up there.) This puppy dropped like a stone. 215 yds. Little in, much bigger out. No bullet recovery but it sure did itís job.

Thanks, we still mourn the loss of our pointer. :(

Just love the stories :)
 I took my son in law with me to fill my tag. He had spent the summer laid up with back surgery so took him along. We drove out a ways and walked around the hill by a spring. We sat down in some low brush and sure enough a nice muley buck came trotting in just like a TV hunt. Well I let the sil take a shot with his rifle and the buck went over backwards and dug his brow tines in the dirt. I handed my rifle to sil and turned to walk back to get truck when the buck jumped up and ran off. Holding 2 rifles sil just saw the buck leaving. We searched and searched but couldn't find a blood trail or anything. The fainting buck has become a joke between us that we won't soon forget. :D

My grouse dog died and my knees gave out so I thought I'd try something new this year.  Bought a Weatherby and went after bigger fish.
Enjoyed a very successful hunt in Wyoming.  Warm and dry up that way but most enjoyable.  Certainly different from the grouse woods!!
Cheers.
