My Mother Camilla Weatherby always said “You get what you pay for.” With me, for style and hit-like-a-ton-of-bricks performance on the world’s toughest animals, you get it all. A French AAA-Fancy Walnut Monte Carlo stock for example, with Ebony caps at the forend and pistol grip. My hand-cut Fluer-de-lis checkering will delight your hands with its elegance and sure grip. A Damascened bolt and engraved “Safari Custom” floorplate add even more class. As for the ton-of-bricks part? Well, that’s what happens at the business end of my muzzle as Weatherby Magnum muscle departs for yet another safari success.

Big 4 with this rifle
I have used the Weatherby Safari rifle in .375 H&H on 3 African safaris with outstanding success. The ultra smooth hand honed action was definitely a boon when I had to use 2 follow up shots in rapid succession to procure my bull Elephant (50lbs tusks each side). I've also taken a massive 41" Cape buffalo with one shot. Huge 550lb male Lion and a beautiful leopard (one shot kills). Ammunition used was Woodleigh 300 gr. Hydrostatic brass solids (undoubtedly the best bullet I've used on 7 African safaris!!!) I've also taken many plains game with this bullet as the hydrostatic effect is absolutely amazing!! The rifle itself is beautiful in presentation and seems to get more handsome with age!! One day I hope I can complete my Big 5 dream (White Rhino of course) with this beautiful, accurate rifle.
Excellence can be at a bargain price.
I have three Mark V Safari Rifles. At my peak of owning rifles intended for dangerous game, I had at least 30 from various makers chambered for the 375 H&H on up. Here's what I have discovered over some four decades of enjoying the big bores... Weatherby provides the absolute most for the money spent. The Safari Rifle isn't cheap, but no other maker comes close on wood grading or actual field performance. Each time when my new Mark V Safari arrived (375 H&H, 416 Wby Mag, 460 Wby Mag), I was taken back by what I felt was astoundingly better stock figure and layout than I had paid for. From the standing bench rest (it's not best to sit down for these rounds), even the 460 shoots right at an inch. The other two are tighter yet. I've owned similar-caliber rifles that were priced in the five figures, and they didn't come anywhere close to that performance. As I reduce out my considerable stash of fine rifles, I have moved the Weatherbys to the "keep em' forever" vault.
Very verry good
