So how can I get on the list for one of these? I am really wanting a new Mark V but I want one from the new factory in Wyoming. Is there some kind of waiting list?

Not that we are aware of.  Hopefully we'll get first crack at them.  ;D

I hope you get one of the first Wyoming rifles, that'd be great.  I bought a Remington 700BDL in 8mm Remington Magnum a few years back and when I called Remington to find out about it they told me it was one of the first 100 built.  That was a really nice surprise and makes it even more special.

Not to derail this thread, but I also have a Remington BDL in 8mm Rem Mag. I used the serial tool to date it myself to 1978 but I couldn't really ascertain anything past that.

My 8mm Rem Mag is one of my favorites!

Try giving Remington a call, that's where I got all the info on mine.  I always wanted an 8mm Remington Magnum and finally got mine a few years ago when I found a deal I couldn't pass up.  I'm using 200 grain Accubonds in the Nosler Custom ammo that I get through MidwayUSA because I can't find Remington brass for it anywhere and refuse to pay Nosler's prices.  What are you using in your's?

If Weatherby comes out with a 8MM rem. mag I'd probably jump at that !

It's a sweet and highly under-rated caliber in my opinion.  I've been kicking around the idea to have a custom 8mm Remington Magnum made on a Mark V Deluxe or even a .358 Shooting Times Alaskan.

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.

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