Our Assessment: Introduced by Roy Weatherby in 1958, the Mark V action was designed to be the strongest action in the world. Roy wanted to create a high-quality, accurate, and powerful rifle for hunting that could handle his high-velocity cartridges.A Weatherby Mark V rifle is more than just the sum of its parts; it’s an embodiment of precision and performance. The rifle was marketed as “The World’s Strongest Bolt Action”. The Mark V action has been tested to be able to contain up to 200,000 CUP (Copper Units of Pressure). The testing of the rifle was conducted on a production rifle chambered for the . 300 Weatherby Magnum. Given its higher pressure and larger case which holds more powder than the . 270 Winchester, the . 270 Weatherby has about 200 ft/s faster performance with any particular bullet weight.The 270 Weatherby with the right bullet is more than capable of taking elk out to 1000 yards if you are proficient enough to do the job and the rifle is capable of MOA or better accuracy.Weatherby says their 270 mag weighing in at 9.25lbs, shooting a 130gr SP will recoil at about 25.2 ft/lbs. This Rifle in particular is in Fine shape and would be a definite statement piece for any collection. One can imagine owning one of the oldest and finest bolt action rifles ever produced almost just as if it just rolled off the factory floor. The styling of this rifle leaves nothing to be desired. Purchase this rifle, you will not be disappointed.
