Combining light weight and an exceptional barrel system

Starting at just 5.8 lbs, the Backcountry 2.0 Carbon owes much of its light weight to the new Peak 44™ Blacktooth™ stock — the lightest production carbon fiber stock on the market.

Aiding in both weight and recoil reduction is the second generation 3DHEX® recoil pad, the first production 3D printed pad the firearms world has seen. Hidden inside the pad are a series of interlocking voids that progressively collapse during recoil, expanding the time component of the recoil impulse and deadening the sharp kick of magnum chamberings.

More pronounced spiral fluting on the bolt body not only trims a little weight, it also reduces bearing surface within the action and results in even smoother function. The newly-threaded bolt handle is equipped with a lightweight aluminum extended and skeletonized knob.

Fit with a titanium version of Weatherby’s highly-effective Accubrake® ST, this brake is blended to match the profile of the #4 carbon fiber barrel. With 30 symmetrically-spaced ports that help harness the recoil, it tames even magnum chamberings and makes them pleasant to shoot.

With exposed carbon fiber on both the barrel and the stock, all metal on the action and barrel is sealed away behind a ceramic Cerakote® shell in Patriot Brown. The stock carries a complementary brown and green pattern to help break up the gun’s lines in the field.

    The Mark V Backcountry Carbon has quickly become my favorite rifle! I have this rifle chambered in 6.5RPM. I went with the Carbon version because I also have a Carbonmark in 6.5 Creed and the BSF barrels are AMAZING! The Backcountry Carbon does not disappoint. The fit and finish is perfect, as you would expect from a $3,000 rifle. The Peak 44 stock is amazingly lightweight, very rigid, and very comfortable. The rifle balances very well and while it is quite light, it is still very easy to shoot well. The Trigger Tech trigger is fantastic. I broke the gun in with Wby Select Plus ammo with the 127 LRX. Velocity was a little less than advertised initially, but accuracy is just over 1/2MOA with 400 yard groups at 2.25″ for 5 shots. Handloading 121Gr. Hammers 100 yard groups are in the .3s with 400 yard groups under 1.5″! If I were going to build my ultimate custom, it would be the Backcountry Carbon.
