Weatherby SUB-MOA Tactical Rifle .308
In early 2010 Weatherby announced a new addition to its rifle line, the SUB-MOA TR (Tactical Rifle) chambered in .308. This rifle also has a little brother chambered in .223. Per its name, the SUB-MOA TR comes with a promise that the rifle will hold a 100-yard 3-shot group below 0.99 of an inch with premium factory ammunition. Getting down to the nuts and bolts of the rifle, the SUB-MOA is a bolt-action rifle that will store five rounds of .308 in the hinged floorplate magazine.
Weatherby’s tried and true Vanguard action is the heart of the rifle. The bolt is a dual lug design. At the left rear of the bolt is the release button and on the right rear is a two stage manual safety — forward to fire, back for safe. When the safety is engaged, the bolt is locked in place. The TR’s trigger is precision tuned in the factory but it is adjustable.
If the action is the heart, the barrel is the soul of a good rifle. Weatherby chose a 22-inch barrel with a #3 contour. Right-hand rifling is a 1-in-10-inch twist. Out at the muzzle, a recessed target crown completes the package and the metal finish on this rifle is blued steel.
