The history of Weatherby® began in the mid-1940's when young Roy Weatherby set out to change the world of firearm performance. Contrary to then-popular thinking (heavy bullets pushed at slow speeds), Roy believed that lightweight bullets traveling at super high speeds provided the best combination for one-shot kills. Based upon that philosophy, he spent the next decade developing the high-powered Weatherby Magnum cartridges for which the company is known today.
 
Throughout that period, Roy was also producing, or re-chambering, rifles designed specifically to accommodate his super-charged ammunition. He was producing his rifles on FN Mauser and French Brevex Magnum Mauser actions. However in 1957, Roy would again catch the attention of the shooting and hunting world with a proprietary action that is today recognized around the world as the Mark V®. The foundation for the Mark V was the need for a stronger, safer action, able to withstand tremendous pressure, and the possibility of blown primers and ruptured case heads. After nearly a half century of proven performance, the Mark V continues to be known as the world's strongest bolt action.
 
The innovation and pace-setting performance associated with the Weatherby name spans more than 65 years. Yet while their place in history is firmly established, it is their prospects for the future that shine brightest of all.
