Tasco Sales Australia (TSA) has sealed a prestigious deal by becoming the exclusive distributor in this country for iconic American firearms manufacturer Weatherby USA. The Weatherby company, of course, is renowned for its high-powered Magnum cartridges, such as the .257 Weatherby Magnum and .460 Weatherby Magnum. These quality items are produced at the firm’s headquarters in the northern San Luis Obispo County town of Paso Robles, California.
The birth of the organisation can be traced back to the mid-1940s when Roy Weatherby set the ball rolling. Roy became swiftly recognised for his innovative high-pressure cartridges, which possessed unmatchable performance. The most recent has been the 6.5-300 Weatherby pushing a 127-grain projectile at more than 3500fps. As the American high-flyer proudly proclaims on its website, the brand has been “inspiring the dreams of hunters and shooters since 1945”.
In this light, TSA, housed in Brookvale, New South Wales, is delighted to be entering into this long-term business arrangement and both parties are excited to be able to bolster the Australian shooting community. The link-up is a major coup for TSA, which is already a thriving wholesale distributor of leading outdoor, optical and law enforcement products.
TSA sales manager Aaron Millard said: “On behalf of the TSA team, we are delighted to join the Weatherby team and honoured to partner with another likeminded business that is passionate about servicing the shooting industry.”
The arrangement kicks in immediately and TSA expects to be distributing the Weatherby range from early 2017. For further information about Weatherby products, contact the TSA group.
