Weatherby Offers Mark V Accumark & TRR Rifles in .338 Lapua Magnum
Paso Robles, CA – -(Ammoland.com)- Weatherby has chambered its Mark V Accumark rifle and Threat Response Rifle (TRR) for the increasingly popular .338 Lapua Magnum long-range cartridge.
Originally designed as an ultra-long-range sniper cartridge for military use, the .338 Lapua Magnum has become a more common choice for big game hunters as well.
“Our Mark V Accumark and TRR rifles are designed for situations that require pinpoint accuracy at extended ranges, so the .338 Lapua Magnum chambering is a natural,” said Brad Ruddell, Weatherby’s vice president of sales and marketing.
The Mark V Accumark features a hand-laminated, raised-comb Monte Carlo composite stock with a matte gel coat finish and spiderweb accents. Also working to enhance accuracy is a button-rifled, #3 contour (.705 muzzle diameter) free-floated stainless steel fluted barrel with target crown. The 28-inch overall barrel length includes an Accubrake to reduce felt recoil.
Other features for precision shooting are a CNC-machined 6061 T-6 aluminum bedding plate and a factory-tuned, fully adjustable trigger. A Pachmayr Decelerator pad on the buttstock helps soften recoil.
Weatherby’s Mark V TRR rifle has a black composite stock with the CNC-machined 6061 T-6 aluminum bedding system. The three-position buttstock is adjustable for length of pull, drop at heel and cant of the pad, allowing a “custom-fit” to shooter size and shape for greater comfort, control and accuracy.
Also equipped with an Accubrake, the barrel measures 28 inches in overall length. Accuracy is further enhanced by the hand-tuned, fully adjustable trigger, which is factory set at three pounds with sear engagement factory set at .008 to .014.
Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices are $2,270 for the .338 Lapua Magnum Mark V Accumark and $2,879 for the .338 Lapua Magnum Mark V TRR. Right-hand models only.
