Let’s talk about family heirlooms – those things that are handed down from generation to generation because they’re just too special to part with. When you own me, you’re not just getting yourself a rifle. It’ll go on to a son or daughter, then on to theirs, and so on. Everyone down the line will appreciate all the same things: My AA-grade Claro walnut, fineline checkering, rosewood accents and most importantly, the legendary Weatherby accuracy of my Vanguard action and 24” cold hammer-forged barrel.

Vanguard is a keeper
I owned a Mark V Deluxe in 300 Weatherby and while I loved it, didn't shoot it all that often. An opportunity came to trade it for a Vanguard in .308. It had a nice scope and a Browning BOSS already installed. So, with two pistols thrown in to sweeten the deal I made the swap. After a trigger job, blown away by the accuracy of my new rifle. Only thing I missed was the beautiful Weatherby walnut stock, so I'm ordering one for this wonderful rifle.
7mm Remigton Magnum
The most accurate rifle I have ever used. Elk, Mule Deer and Antelope have all been 1 shot harvest.
Would definitely recommend the Vanguard.
Van Guard Deluxe
Very accurate rife. Reasonably price, exceptional quality. Regarding hunting rifle purchase, one of the best decisions I've made.
The best quality manufactured( rifles) on the market today.
Weatherby has maintained the quality standards of all there rifles since the Mark V first came on the market many years ago. No matter where the rifles have been manufactured the standards have been maintained and or improved to the highest quality. You own a Weatherby and you own the best of the best. It does not matter if you have a Vanguard or the Mark V. I know because I own more than a complete set and used them all with not one problem or failure. That is about 50 years of shooting and hunting with Weatherby's !
My family has been shooting Weatherby rifles for years. To be honest I never had one of my own because of the price point, until one day I got an unbelievable deal on a 270 deluxe. The deal was so good that I actually entertained the idea of selling it so I could double my money. Then, I shot it! Everything came to light as to why these rifles are considered to be some of the best on the planet. This is the affidavit of one happy camper that never sold this rifle! If you know someone who has one, shoot it. You WILL understand. Thank Weatherby for making such an amazing rifle!
