Starting at just 4.7 lbs the Mark V® Backcountry™ Ti was purpose-built to be the best lightweight mountain rifle on the market. It features Peak 44’s Blacktooth carbon fiber stock which weighs only 19oz making it one of the lightest production stocks on the market. Equipped with an Accubreak and 3D Hex Recoil pad, the Backcountry 2.0 series manages recoil extremely well even with Weatherby’s historic magnum cartridges. The titanium action has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio cutting even more weight than the standard steel action. When ounces and accuracy matter grab the Backcountry Ti.
Fluted Barrel / Trigger Guard / Bolt / Bolt Knob / Safety – Graphite Black Cerakote
Stock – Peak 44 Blacktooth carbon fiber stock with Grey and White sponge pattern accents
Picked one up at a little gun store in south Colorado. Bought what ammo they had in stock (225 grain Interlock). Big game seasons are over for the next 8 months but figured why not try it on some wild hogs down in Louisiana. I sighted it in the morning I left to come down, one ragged hole group at 100 yards, 3 inches high, chronographed within 5fps of each other and makes it dead on at 250 yards. Usually I like a tougher bullet like a partition or Scirocco but with the velocity I’ll stick with an interlock for now. Shot 3 hogs, max distance was about 190, closest was 40. A bit overkill and at $5 a round I’m good with it, I’ll just skip getting a quarter pounder tomorrow… great gun, lightweight even with a leupold vx3hd and a Harris bipod. On complaint is weatherby won’t give me their proprietary load data so I can start playing with different loads. I mean I feel like it should come with some data for the cost (sarcasm).
