Weatherby Intros New Mark V Hunter

December 2, 2021
PRESS RELEASE

Sheridan, WY – Weatherby, Inc.® introduces the new Mark V® Hunter to its premium bolt-action line. Bringing a wealth of chamberings to the legendary Weatherby Mark V platform, the Hunter is fitted with a freshly-designed stock that echoes the shape and ergonomics of the Mark V Backcountry 2.0 family of rifles that debuted earlier in 2021. The Hunter’s polymer stock features the same trim, flat-bottomed forend, ambidextrous palm swells and aluminum pillar construction and is finished in a Granite Speckle.

Threaded 1/2x28 for use with a suppressor or brake, the Mark V Hunter’s barreled action is sealed under a shell of Cobalt Cerakote, shielding it from the elements. A deep-fluted bolt with removable knob not only trims a little weight and helps clear dust and debris, it also reduces the bearing surface within the action resulting in smoother operation.

The Mark V Hunter is available in a wide range of cartridges, both Weatherby Magnum chamberings as well as American classics:

  • 240 WBY MAG
  • 243 WIN
  • 25-06 REM
  • 257 WBY MAG
  • 6.5 CREEDMOOR
  • 6.5 WBY RPM
  • 270 WIN
  • 270 WBY MAG
  • 7MM-08 REM
  • 280 ACKLEY IMPROVED
  • 7MM REM MAG
  • 7MM WBY MAG
  • 308 WIN
  • 30-06 SPRINGFIELD
  • 300 WIN MAG
  • 300 WBY MAG


Designed to be the world’s strongest action, the interrupted thread style of lockup. Available in both Standard and Magnum action sizes, the Standard employs a six lug design while the beefier Magnum uses nine locking lugs, enabling these actions to safely chamber the hottest commercially-available cartridges on the market. Other safety features include three rings of steel around the base of the cartridge when it’s in battery, a fully-enclosed bolt shroud and three gas relief ports in the bolt body to vent pressure in the case of an ammunition failure.

With an array of new features, a stout and comfortable new stock and a hardy finish to ward off the elements, the Mark V Hunter carries an MSRP of $1,499. For purchasing information about the new Weatherby Mark V Hunter, visit weatherby.com.
