Details

Show me the topo map and I’ll tell you where to take me: Deep into the backlands to pursue animals that few if any have ever seen – let alone got shots at. That’s my kind of hunting, but it requires traveling light, which is what I do best. I weigh just 6.75 pounds thanks to my cutting-edge carbon fiber composite stock and weight-shaved fluted 24” barrel. I’m finished with a gray spider-webbed gel coat on the stock, and tactical gray Cerakote® on my metal for protection against the toughest punishment the back country can dish out.

  1. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

    By LD November 24, 2018

    I'm a small gal and ordered my Backcountry with a 12 & 1/2" length of pull in 30/06 caliber and I truly couldn't be more in love with this rifle!!! I hunt thick brush in Washington State for blacktail deer and it literally drops deer in their tracks when shot! I'm now considering ordering another in 300 Weatherby mag!!!!

  2. Great gun....Stock... not so much

    By Bill Paris October 27, 2018

    I have this in a .257 and it shoots great, handles great and is light. However the stock is not very durable...I'm not sure if this is Weatherby's std stock or if they are using a lighter foam material but after a couple of years of not rough use... The for-end swivel pulled out. My Weatherby 7mm Rem mag might have the same stock? But it's been through the ringer with virtually no stock damage.
    I think for the price, the stock should be more durable.

  3. Stock isnt Weatherby tough

    By Ty March 26, 2018

    Great gun, shoots well, love it, but only one issue is the stock, found it to be very cheap and weak, cracks and chips very easily. Only flaw i found.

  4. Great Backcountry Rifle

    By Bundo January 22, 2018

    Was on the hunt for a good quality rifle in the .257 Weatherby without breaking the bank. I wanted a light, durable and reliable back-country rifle. I found it.

    Had a local gunsmith lap the bore for me and I was able to put a 1/2", 3-shot group at 200 yards in the first 10 rounds with 120 gr. Nosler Partition. Spendy round, but fantastic accuracy and hits hard.

    Rifle is well balanced and has performed flawlessly so far in less than perfect Idaho conditions.

    You won't be sorry.

  5. Great gun

    By Paul November 29, 2017

    This is my 11th weatherby rifle, bought it in 257mag. Accuracy is unbelievable, was able to shoot a 1.375 group at 300 yards, great deer/ antelope gun, thanks Weatheryby!
