Proving Grounds

The mountains take ahold of you with their elements and they isolate you in their wild. The days are long and the nights are lonely, but when you’re there, you can be no where else. Adam Weatherby was there to test himself. And a rifle. And a cartridge. These are the Proving Grounds.

    This video is exceptional in a world were arrogance and pride reign. God has blessed you richly with wisdom. I continue as a steadfast supporter of your brand and the beliefs behind the company’s leaders. Speak the truth brother!

    Thank you, Adam, for sharing this journey of soul and body. New products come because there is inspiration and a thought process to back it up. Our God grants us the opportunity to enjoy Him and His creation. Thank you for expressing yourself as a young man with feelings and purpose.

    I pastor a little church in Hinton, WV and have been looking for a .223 for my son-in-law who is a youth pastor. I appreciate your personal testimony in this video! I’ll stop looking at the CZ’s, Remingtons, Winchesters, and Rugers because of your commitment to “do all to the glory of God.” (I Cor 10:31). Thanks Adam!

    In Christ,
    Pastor Scott Ross

    I am professional hunter for Big-Game in Africa and have hunted with your guns and bullets my whole career!It is over 45 years of Weatherby experience on my own and then a lot more in the bush with clients Weatherbys and friends Weatherbys and no failures at all!!Ran in a lot of people who had a lot to say bad of your product but on closer “investigation” none of them owned one,no one has had the bad experiences themselfs and most of them were known as telling stories of hear say!All people I know who owned a Weatherby and who used them extensively never had them fail!!!My vavourits are still your 240 Wby.,300 Wby.,378Wby.,and my big-game guiding rifle is a Mac Millan but in your 460 Wby..!These guns do it all in style and never left me wanting anything more!The only sad thing was that in many years back I suggested to Weatherby already to enlargen your magazine capacity and produce heavier for caliber loads and make straight stocks on the 378 Wby and up!I never heard from them back nor did they do it for many,many years later!It was sad as I know a lot of colleges would have made their guiding gun a Weatherby!I also suggested to take a faster twist for your rifles so it stabilises your heavier bullets better and even the lighter bullets stay better on course in the game.All these factors I think would have helped Weatherby a lot during the time where other companies tried to infent the wheel again and did just that!If I could I would buy your newest 6.5-300 Wby. Accumark (RC) in a hartbeat!I would always recomend your product to my clients as I tested them more than enough under real and harsh working conditions myself and with clients!They work!That is why I trust them on dangerous game and will use them also until my career wil end.
