My go to rifle
25 years ago I bought myself a 270 Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe. To this day it is my go to rifle for hunting whitetail deer and hogs here in Texas. I use premium ammunition and I’m still amazed at its accuracy. I mounted a Leupold straight 6 powered scope on it and have taken several deer and over 250 yards with it. I’m looking forward to many more years of hunting with this fine rifle.
vanguard deluxe 30.06
just purchased my new vanguard deluxe 30.06 because of my great experience with a weatherby .300 Mag Mark V and and .270 Weatherby Vanguard. This rifle combines the enjoyability of the .270 with more of the knockdown power of the .300 mag. Manageable recoil and excellent accuracy with my Leopold scope and I believe I have found my new favorite general hunting rifle!
Amazing rifle had it for thirteen years
I got the 300 Weatherby Mag Deluxe for my 50th birthday. The gun bench shoots a three shot group at 100 yards inside 0.6 inches. It is not a gun for the faint of heart because it kicks like a mule. Every friend who has shot it split their eyebrow on the scope. It has never hurt me but you have to hold it tight into your shoulder. Even at 500 yards it hits harder than a 30 06 at muzzle. Never needed to shoot any game more than one shot. I found it shoots a 165 grain bullet the best. The wood is gorgeous.
Owning this rifle is like owning a expensive sports car.
It's just a beautiful firearm that gets so many envious looks , make you feel proud. While growing up Weatherby was so famous and always read every article I could find on them never thinking I would actually own one. It's a 30/06 and I actually bought it second hand and it was love at first sight. It had a Tasco scope on it and looked brand new and I thought someone spent good money on the gun and put a low priced scope on it and never realized how good of a shooter it was. I put a Bushnell elite scope on it and I can honestly say" I've never had such a accurate rifle and I've owned many". Thanks Weatherby for making such a awesome firearm.
I picked up a Vanguard Deluxe in .270 which was new, but roughly handled before being sold to me. The price was just too good to pass up, even with a few dents and scratches in the walnut stock.
I decided to steam out the small dents and used very fine sand paper on the finish. Due to the excellent factory stock finish, the repairs are almost perfect. I used a fine compound and wax afterward.
The rifle is very accurate and is perhaps my favorite hunting rifle.
