.Roy
As a young man, in the late 1940's, Roy Weatherby developed an
insatiable interest in ballistics and rifle performance. At a time when many
firearms "experts" were promoting large bullets traveling at slow speeds,
Roy was experimenting with lighter weight bullets traveling at extremely
high velocities. It was his belief that this combination was ideal in creating
the hydrostatic shock needed to kill animals quickly and humanely. In
Roy's mind, there was no other way: speed kills - period.

Continued from above article
Roy's initial work began with developing his high powered, magnum cartridges. He developed
the .220 Rocket (based on the .220 Swift), and the first Weatherby Magnums - .257, .270
and
.300 (based on the .300 H&H Mag.). From his small operation in South Gate, California, Roy
was building his own rifles on virtually any actions he could obtain (FN Mauser, Schultz &
Larsen and Mathieus to name a few), as well as offering to rechamber rifles for his newly
designed magnum calibers.
Soon, his high powered cartridges began to draw the attention of noted gun writers Jack
O'Connor, Elmer Keith and influentials such as Sheldon Coleman (of Coleman Company
fame). Over the years, Roy would have many "friendly arguments," often conducted through
printed
letters and rebuttals in magazines, with the likes of O'Connor, Keith and other firearms
experts on the merits of his high velocity cartridges and rifles.
By the mid to late 1950's Weatherby had expanded his line of magnum cartridges to include
the
.378 Weatherby Magnum (which replaced the .375 Weatherby Magnum) and the .460 (the
world's most powerful cartridge, delivering nearly four tons of muzzle energy). At that time, he
was producing his rifles on German FN Mauser and Czechoslovakian Brevex Magnum
Mauser actions. Later, in 1957, he would develop a new action - originally designated the
Model 58
(later to become the legendary Mark V) - specifically designed to handle the magnum loads of
his increasingly popular cartridges.

LEAD: Roy E. Weatherby Sr., a leading authority on ballistics who was the creator of the
famed Weatherby rifle favored by big-game hunters, died Tuesday. He was 77 years old It
was Mr. Weatherby's perfection of his theory on high velocity, and the resulting Weatherby
Magnum cartridges, that led to the development of the Weatherby rifle.
