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.

Bought my 1st weatherby in the 257 weatherby vanguard deluxe. Sighted it in and went hunting. Pulled the trigger 3 times and harvested 3 deer. This is the last rifle I will ever have to buy
Bought a Weatherby Vanguard 300 Win. Mag. Added a AccuBrake selected stock. Damacene bolt. Added Leupold 4-12x50MM scope. Rifle zeroed at 200 yards in 3 shots. Contently shoots groups less than 1 inch. You can shoot This rifle all day you would run out of ammo before your shoulder felt ant substantial recoil. I hunt wild Pigs it knocks the wild out of them. Buy one you will not be disappointed.
I bought a Vanguard chambered in 300 Win mag and used it to hunt for the pot in Tanzania in Africa for 3 years. It had amazing knock-down power, excellent accuracy, holding a 3/4" group at 200 yards and was very flat shooting up to 250 yards. I regularly took down antelope at 500 yards and on one occasion was called on to take out a Cape Buffalo that was wrecking some local farms. I shot only once from 50 yards with a 220 grain Hornady bullet and that was that. The rifle was a pleasure to use and a thing of beauty. I don't have the rifle any more because I live in Europe, but I miss it a lot.
All-around great gun
After effectively taking down my second deer, I was amazed by the clean shot produced by this gun. Even after 20 years this gun has held up to high standards.
This rifle is every bit as beautiful as it is accurate. After breaking in the barrel (instructions are on this site) I took the time to zero in the rifle. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I approached the target. I shot a dime sized 3 shot group at 100 yards with Federal Edge TLR in 300 win mag. I had very similar results with Hornady Superformance ammunition as well. If you’re thinking about purchasing this rifle, know you will not regret it!
