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
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.
