Back Country Rifle Returns in Weatherby's® Vanguard® Series 2 Line
Weighing just 6 ¾ pounds, Back Country carries the Weatherby SUB-MOA guarantee and other features common to all Vanguard Series 2 rifles. In addition, Back Country’s chrome moly metalwork with Cerakote® Tactical Grey finish provides exceptional corrosion resistance.
“We introduced an earlier version of Back Country several years ago and, due to popular demand, have brought it back as a Vanguard Series 2 offering,” said company President Ed Weatherby. “It is an ideal rifle for hardcore hunters on long treks in rugged terrain and nasty weather.”
The Vanguard Series 2 Back Country is guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. Accuracy-enhancing features include a pillar-bedded Monte Carlo composite stock with spiderweb accents, and a 24-inch fluted barrel. A Pachmayr® Decelerator® pad on the buttstock helps reduce felt recoil.
Like all Vanguard Series 2 rifles, Back Country has a match quality, two-stage trigger and a 3-position safety. The trigger has an auxiliary sear for a “creep free” consistent let-off and pre-set sear engagement at .008-.012. It is adjustable for weight of pull down to 2.5 pounds.
Vanguard Series 2 Back Country caliber options include .240 Wby. Mag., .270 Win., .257 Wby. Mag., .30-06 Springfield, .300 Win. Mag. and .300 Wby. Mag. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $1,399.
