Weatherby ammunition remains true to the concept Roy Weatherby developed in the 1940s, the faster a bullet traveled, the better. The flatter it would shoot, the less it would drop, the harder it would hit, the better its terminal performance. At the same time, our ammunition also takes advantage of the latest in controlled expansion bullets which are capable of harnessing the higher velocities to create a cartridge that provides the ultimate in penetration, large wound channels and more one-shot kills. Nothing shoots flatter, hits harder or is more accurate.
The .30-378 was initially a wildcat cartridge developed by Roy Weatherby in 1959 at the request of the United States Army. This white hot cartridge is based on the .378 necked down to .30 caliber and packed with powder. Originally billed as the worlds fastest .30 caliber cartridge, it will push a .30 caliber bullet more than 3,500 feet per second. Reintroduced as a Weatherby production cartridge in 1996.
