New Weatherby® Vanguard® Camilla™, Now Available in 6.5 Creedmoor for Women Shooters

PASO ROBLES, Calif. – January 17, 2017 – No two shooters are alike, and men are certainly different from women when it comes to the way a rifle should fit and perform. That's why Weatherby created the Vanguard® Camilla™ – a rifle designed entirely for women, by women. The result is an exquisite firearm that truly becomes an extension of a woman's form. For 2017, a new cartridge has been added to the Camilla line: the flat-shooting, hard-hitting 6.5 Creedmoor. The rifle is also available in .243 WIN, .308 WIN and 7mm-08 REM.

“Since introducing Camilla, a rifle named after Roy Weatherby’s wife and the First Lady of the Weatherby family, the glowing response from female shooters has been amazing,” said Adam Weatherby, President and Chief of Weatherby, Inc. “It was a natural extension to offer the rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor for long-range match shooting and hunting. It packs a serious wallop without harsh recoil, so it’s really a joy to shoot this gun,” Weatherby added.

The creation of the Camilla began by consulting Women of Weatherby representatives and other female hunters and shooters to ensure an exact design. Its stock, sculpted from A-grade Turkish walnut with a satin finish and rosewood caps, has a slim forearm for a fine feel and reduced weight. The narrow radius pistol grip has a subtle palm-swell and a short grip-to-trigger reach for smaller hands. Camilla’s high comb provides optimal cheek weld and eye-scope alignment. Combined with its 13-inch length of pull and thoughtful buttstock angle, this rifle exactly fits a woman’s form with impeccable balance and fast-to-target handling.

Like all Weatherby Vanguard rifles, Camilla provides confidence with a match-quality, two-stage trigger that breaks crisp and clean. Its 20-inch #1 contour barrel guarantees SUB-MOA accuracy, and when cycling 6.5 Creedmoor cartridges at long range, Camilla proves that Nothing Shoots Flatter, Hits Harder, or is More Accurate® than a Weatherby.
