The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Hunters
The holidays are fast approaching! Are you struggling to find that perfect item for the hunter or adventurer in your life? If so, this curated list of essential items is sure to please that special person that seems to already have it all. This isn’t run-of-the-mill hunting gear, but rather, top-notch pieces of kit that discriminating hunters strive to own. Read on for some great gift-giving options!
Weatherby Mark V Backcountry 2.0 Ti
The Backcountry 2.0 Ti is one of the coolest rifles going. It is offered in both Weatherby’s Mark V 9 and 6 lug actions and a bevy of Weatherby’s amazing cartridges. In the 6-lug action version, it weighs in at only 4.9 pounds making it arguably the lightest weight hunting rifle on the market today. When you step up to the larger cartridges and the 9-lug action, it still weighs in at a scant 5.6 pounds. What a pleasure to carry on long forays into the woods! It is available in a bunch of Weatherby’s proprietary cartridges but is also offered in their two newest cartridges, the 6.5 & 338 RPMs. These cartridges were designed to fit specifically in their smaller 6-lug action, but still be robust as any of Weatherby’s cartridges are. This fantastic lightweight rifle features a Titanium action, Peak 44 Carbon Fiber stock, Trigger Tech Trigger, spiral fluted bolt, skeletonized bolt handle, and guaranteed sub-moa accuracy. What else would you expect from this iconic company?
