Video: Weatherby Camilla Vanguard Rifle for Women

posted on January 22, 2016
Weatherby knows that women have been long been as equally skilled hunters as their male counterparts, despite that they have often chosen a rifle that might not necessarily fit her as well as it does her brother or husband. Now women no longer have to adapt to an ill-fitting rifle. As part of Weatherby's commitment to bringing even more women into hunting—and offering a new choice for women who are already knocking down game—the company has announced its first rifle conceived of and designed by women. The Camilla bolt-action rifle is built on the Vanguard action, with external dimensions that are important for a proper women's fit. The stock, grip, length of pull, and fall at comb and heel are all designed with women's proportions in mind. It's currently available in four calibers—.223, .243, 7 mm-.08 and .308. For more on the new Camilla, watch the video above from SHOT Show 2016 by a host with a very familiar family name, or go to womenofweatherby.com.
