What goes together as well as grilled venison backstrap and fried potatoes? I do. I am the Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic paired with a versatile Leupold® VX-2® 3-9X 40mm riflescope. The combo adds up to SUB-MOA accuracy with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition… guaranteed. I am the one-two punch you’ll love on your next big game hunt, because when my Leupold crosshairs settle behind the shoulder, and you squeeze my adjustable two-stage match trigger, all you have to do next is fire up the grill.

I bought my Vanguard 7mm from Cargill's gunshop in Conroe, Texas in 1971 or 72. I installed the Leupold 3x9 Vari X 2 scope for hunting in east Texas. I had previously used a British 303 Military surplus, shooting 180 gr. ammo. My first 100 yd shot group of 3 shots could be placed inside a single nickle circle. Man, I was estatic!!! I've hunted with it since 1972 and absolutely love it even today !!!! I've tried firing other 7mm Magnums & they "kicked my shoulder off", so to speak !!!! Thank you Weatherby for a Great Weapon for a lifetime use !!!!!
Vanguard® Leupold® Package in .308
I have the package in .308 and over the past few seasons in the Pennsylvania woods it has proven to be a 100% reliable deer slayer. I have made 1 shot kills ranging from 50 to 150 yards. Can you fall in love with a gun?
Beautiful to use, enough kick to the stock where it doesn't hurt. I prefer the Beanfield rifle myself but i would more than welcome this gun into the family.
Just buy it!
I purchased this rifle on sale with low expectations and I’ll be darned if it’s not my go to rifle now, far and away better then my Rugers, Remington’s and Savages that we’re more expensive. It’s not that pretty with a grey stock, it’s very utilitarian, exactly how you want a hunting rifle to be so you don’t cry when it gets scratched, and boy does it shoot! I wish I could upload some target pictures.
Performance & Value
The .257 just hammers 'em, 1 shot drops .. incredible trigger out of the box, fit & finish is sharp & clean, seems indestructible .. my new go-to gun.
