Weatherby

Weatherby, Inc., is a gun company founded in 1945 by Roy Weatherby, and is best known for its powerful .257 Weatherby Magnum and .460 Weatherby Magnum. The company's headquarters are located in San Luis Obispo County, Paso Robles, CA.  The company has developed re-chambering rifles to accommodate his super charged ammunition. Roy Weatherby wanted to create lightweight bullets travelling at super high speeds that enables for a one shot kill. The company was able to create the high speed ammunition which is known today as Mark V. The trailblazing ammunition, Mark V, was able to withstand tremendous pressure and has proven to be safer and stronger in bolt action performance. 

The company was able to further develop Weatherby's Vanguard action by borrowing many of the same characteristics of Mark V with two locking lugs vs. 9 in Mark V, and with the same tradition created Vanguard Series 2 which features guaranteed Sub-Moa accuracy.  At the same time, the company offers full line of Semi-Automatic and Pump Shotguns, as well as accessories, collectibles and apparels.

Among the products the company is producing are the Semi Automatic SA-08 Shot guns, the PA-08 Pump Action Shot guns, and the Pump (PA-459) Turkey shot guns which is designed for shooting sports and concealment.  Furthermore, the company is known for its Vanguard Series 2 TRR RC, range certified, Sub-Moa accuracy certified, able to shoot a 3-shot group of .99” or less using the special Weatherby factory ammunition.  The Vanguard Series 2 has a two stage trigger with special RC engraved floorplate, available in hand laminated Monte Carlo composite stock aluminum bedding plate.
