A day will come when we need to pull off the toughest shot we’ll ever face. Maybe it’ll be a whitetail breathing on 200 B&C inches. Or perhaps a bruin with a head the size of an 8-gallon keg. When that day comes, you can count on me to deliver. I am a Range Certified Vanguard and I come with official paperwork from the Oehler Ballistic Imaging System. The certification includes specific load/ballistic data and a computer image of the actual 3-shot group I fired at the Weatherby range. It’s signed by my boss Adam Weatherby to make it official.

  1. Nearly Perfect Rifle

    By csmith April 17, 2018

    I own an earlier model in 7mm-08 Vanguard S2 RC from 2017. The rifle is nearly perfect and with the recommended ammo the gun shoots better than my actual abilities. One thing everyone I think forgets about is the Weatherby stock design. It's ability to absorb recoil is uncanny and with the more stiff kicking rounds (ie30-06/270 Weatherby Mag) it really shines. I own 4 Weatherby rifles (2 mark Vs and 2 Vanguards) and frankly, this might be my favorite one of them all.

  2. Outstanding short action, high value pilar bedded rife.

    By StevieT March 24, 2018

    I researched the Weatherby line of Vanguard Rifles in addition to several other brands with the goal of adding a mild recoiling rifle that would be accurate out of the box, handle well and look great. A high value rifle to compliment my 30/06 go to hunting rifle. Well, I believe pilar bedding is the best way to bed a rifle for consistent accuracy when combined with an excellent trigger. The Weatherby Vanguard, Range Certified model hit all of my criteria. I really like the dark green black webbing stock finish too. I purchased the Vanguard RC in .243, added a Leupold 4.5-14 AO VX3i Scope and couldn’t be happier. It was a consistent 1/2 inch rifle out of the box. So happy I bought a second Weatherby Vanguard Range Certified Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. Same story. It was also a 1/2 to 3/4 inch rifle with almost everyt cartridge type I tried. I added an older Leupold 6.5-20x40mm AO scope and couldn’t be more satisfied with both of my Weatherby rifles. Thanks for building and offering such s great product Weatherby. I recommend this rifle all the time. It’s the only pilar bedded stock in the Vanguard product line. Thanks

  3. Impressive , the most accurate rifle I have shoot

    By Sweden Rifleman Hristo March 17, 2018

    Bought Weatherby vanguard varmint cal 308 RC ,
    put a Leopold scope 3-4*40 TMR on it ,
    REAL TACKDRIVER , prescion is 15 mm at 100 meter with Hornady 150grains ammo , I could shoot 3 times in row , I was impressed , I have heard from my friends that with Norma 150grains cal.308 Jaktmatch the precison is 9mm .
    I had only one BIG problem that was the Warne bases that were defective ,
    When I mounted the Warne bases and scope , the rifle didnt hit a target size 150cm*150cm at 100meters , Bought second warne bases and the same happens again , Then I mounted a expensieve picanntyrail and problem solved. Extremly satisfied with the rifle , fore the money I cant buy a better rifle .

  4. Fantastic rifle.

    By Jimmy February 10, 2018

    Durable tack driver. I shoot federal premium in 7mm and it does the business on most anything. Not light but I have 100% confidence that when it hits the pack something is going in the freezer.

  5. Improved accuracy

    By Riley January 22, 2018

    At 65 I have used Weatherby rifles for many years and the performance has always been dependable. I had a cheap .223 for my daughter and she handed it back to me because of its bad performance. I bought her a Vanguard "RC" .223 and after she shot it, I got the "Best Dad" award. I tried it and it is amazing. Never thought Weatherby rifles could tighten up the pattern - I was wrong. Congrats and recommend buying an "RC"
