Vanguard® Safari

Vanguard® Safari


* Required Fields



The Mark V has had all the globetrotting fun long enough, which is why I’m here to bring safari adventure to the Vanguard line. My oil-finished walnut stock, exotic grip and forend caps, Fleur-de-lis checkering and Pachmayr® Decelerator® pad make me fit right in with the other classic guns in camp. Plus, I’m available in .30-06 for the plains and .375 H&H for dangerous game. So you might have to get one of me in each caliber. I’m just sayin’.

  1. Vanguard Safari

    By Steve November 27, 2018

    This is probably, the most beautiful rifle I've ever owned! I bought it in 375 h&h. it's as smooth as silk and shoots like a dream straight from the box! I love this gun!

  2. Awesome!

    By Adam September 09, 2018

    I bought this rifle in the 375 H&H, topped it with a Leupold VX-5HD and I couldn't be happier. The gun shoots under an inch and is surprisingly easy with recoil.

  3. Weatherby vanguard

    By Larry June 03, 2018

    I have two vanguards right now 257 and 375 both will shoot under an inch, the 257 will shoot half inch ( 5 shot group) with Barnes TSX 100 grain.

  4. It's about time!

    By JDC October 20, 2017

    Finally, after waiting for decades, it took Weatherby to introduce a truly classic yet modern configuration in 30-06. Most hunters of middle age and younger have lost touch of how good a cartridge this is. Although I have yet to see one (it's mid-October 2017, and I only learned about it yesterday), I have already put in an order with my Weatherby dealer. As for value, how do you do it? And when it comes to quality, Weatherby is the last word. Performance? All of my Vanguards, and those of friends, shoot consistent groups in the one-inch range; better yet with smaller calibers like the 257 Weatherby Magnum. I'll have trouble waiting for this one!
