    N.Z. Weatherby importer/Distributor.

    Wanting some information on the 6 lug Weatherby in 6.5 RPM. Who actually is the N.Z. agent?

    Finally got some traction on this, Gun City are looking into the logistics of importing a Weatherby for me, I've shied away from the 4.9 lb titanium model at $3500 USD and have asked for the Weathermark lite in 6.5 RPM at 5.9 LB at $1900 USD.

    some very very nice rifles indeed, still only 3 shot .99" moa guarantee I'd be expecting more from a US$3000+ rifle
    no hate at all they look stunning just would've thought they would be capable of much much more

    Are there any that guarantee less than 1moa that's non custom? Also 3k for a titanium action? They also have a very small contoured barrel. I had a MK V 270 Ultralight that was 5.75 pounds and it shot easily. 75 if not better with federal blue box 130s and with precision hunter would do a half moa. It's just like a tikka really. They guarantee 1 moa but really you could get much better. There is no guarantee on accuracy building a rifle with a match barrel on a titanium action. Now do they gain anything over anything else realistically not really.

    Like I said no hate, they look awesome.
    Sako guarantee a 5 shot moa, and with load development both are likely capable of far better.
    Agree US$3K for a titanium action is pretty good.
    Let's face it less than a custom buld to that spec.

    $3500 usd will equate to more than $6000 nzd by the time itís shipped here and everyone has had their lick of the lowly. Thatís full custom dollars.

    Exactly the reason I'm not ordering that one in fact if the cost is too much for the Weathermark lt I won't be buying that either. Anyway it's all conjecture until they advise if they can actually obtain one.

    Take a look at the Bergara premier Highlander or Premier Approach for a rifle with similar specs that retails from usd $1800.
    If they start bringing the highlander into NZ it's on my wishlist
