Weatherby Magnum

In 1963, the .224 Varmintmaster was introduced by Weatherby in a reduced scale version of the famous Mark V rifle. At present, rifles chambered for the .224 Weatherby are only available from Weatherby. This is a proprietary cartridge with performance similar to the .22-250 Remington. The .224 Weatherby is an excellent choice for varmint hunters who prefer using Weatherby rifles.

Factory ammo produced 56,000 P.S.I. in our pressure barrel. Our data does not exceed that pressure.
