Weatherby® Introduces Mark V® Terramark™ RC (Range Certified) Rifle
Weatherby® offers custom features and “Range Certified” accuracy assurance in its new Mark V® Terramark™ RC rifle, which comes with a SUB-MOA guarantee as well as a factory-shot target signed by company President Ed Weatherby.
The Mark V Terramark RC offers multiple accuracy-enhancing features, including a hand-laminated, raised comb, Monte Carlo composite stock with matte gel coat finish in Desert Camo, and a button-rifled #3 contour stainless steel fluted barrel. The 26-inch barrel is free floating and has a recessed target crown. A Pachmayr® Decelerator® pad on the buttstock helps reduce felt recoil.
Offering exceptional weather and corrosion resistance, the metalwork is finished in Flat Dark Earth Cerakote™.
Mark V Terramark RC rifles are tested at Weatherby’s modern indoor range. Range technicians mount premium optics, boresight and test fire each rifle to determine the most accurate load using the Oehler Research 83 Ballistic Imaging System. After testing, the rifle is cleaned and packed (minus optics) with the Oehler target signed by Ed Weatherby. Each rifle sports a special RC engraved floorplate.
“This rifle is a great example of what our Custom Shop can do,” said Mike Schwiebert, director of marketing for Weatherby, Inc. “Whether it’s a pre-packaged custom rifle like the Mark V Terramark RC or designing a Weatherby rifle that is uniquely yours, our Custom Shop can make it happen.”
All RC rifles are guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less at 100 yards) with specified Weatherby factory or premium ammunition.
