Details

The first thing you'll notice about me, aside from Weatherby’s legendary fit and finish, is my stock. The Monte Carlo design, complete with a right-side palm swell and textured forearm and grip areas, is appointed with innovative First Lite Fusion camo - a proprietary mix of “crackalature” shapes and colors derived through nature-based algorithms and oriented for macro and micro disruption. Simply put, I disappear at distances from 2-2,000 yards.

  1. Will exceed your expectations

    By Airgonda October 13, 2018

    This rifle comes out of the box and starts printing 1/2” groups so fast it’ll make your head spin...both literally and figuratively. I got the 6.5-300 and bought the Select 140 gr ammo so that I could harvest the brass for reloading. Ultimately, I have decided to just shoot factory ammo for a while. I got 1/2” groups without any break in period. Sighted in 2 and 3/4” high at 100, this rifle is basically on at 350 yards. At 400 I’m holding on the top of the plate. Feels good. Looks good. Priced unbelievably low compared to other rifles this accurate. I have 6 Weatherby’s now and each outperforms the guarantee. But this rifle with confidence.

  2. Second time around with Vanguard

    By Tom In South Texas October 07, 2018

    First Lite is an outstanding weapon for the price. After a tedious break in, and zero at 200 yds. The rifle produces repeated >1.5" groups at 200 yds with Select Plus 110 gr. Nosler Accubond.

  4. Beautiful and great shooter.

    By Davedavey October 02, 2018

    Got one in 270 Winchester. Needed light recoil due to a neck injury, and it really performs in the light recoil category. At less then 20 rounds through it with non premium federal power shock rounds. Got 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards. At 450 yards got 4 inch group with A Nikon scope and hornady eld-x rounds. Can't wait to see what accuracy I get when the barrel gets broke in.

  5. WOW Beautiful rifle

    By RonT September 15, 2018

    Like the stock configuration and camo. Fluted barrel is sweet. Muzzel brake seems a bit much, could be good on big calibers. Company should work on reducing weight 8 -16 oz.
