Welcome to Weatherby. I’m the greeter. They put me at the entrance because I’m known as the entry-level Vanguard who comes in at less than $600. A small price to pay for my phenomenal engineering and craftsmanship, not to mention my Vanguard action, one-piece machined bolt body, accurate hammer-forged barrel and Monte Carlo stock. Whether you’re new to hunting or adding another caliber to the gun safe, I’m the rifle to select. After all, it’s in my name.

Mine is in .270 I shoot factory loaded bullets in 140 grain, the accuracy is unreal, typically I shoot one shot then use the hole for my target, I shoot four more shots and most times it's hard to tell there is more than one hole. 100 yards off sandbags. Also I've killed 3 cow elk with it, one was a head shot at 509 yards, then a neck shot at 197, only because I couldn't see her head, then a running heart shot at 98, I took those shots because of my confidence in this weapons accuracy.
300 Wby Mag and 7mm Mag Vanguards
Excellent rifles. I bought my oldest son the 300 Wby Mag when he was 18 and he is now 37. I bought my youngest son the 7mm Mag when he was 14 and he is now 30. I can't count how many deer have been killed with these two rifles. It seems like they shoot better and better the more they are used. Looking at buying a Select Vanguard for my soon to be 14 year old grandson.
Weatherby Vanguard Chambered in 7 mm Magnum
I have the Vanguard it is excellent rifle for the price and i have made a deer kill out to 641 yards in a corn field and trusted i to get the job done and that was the second time hunting with the gun love it
Weatherby Vanguard .308 well made
I purchased the Vangaurd two years ago. Not only is it good pricing, but it is very well made. Perfect for Western USA hunting, this is my second Vanguard, if that tells you something.
I bought the Vanguard synthetic in 300 Win Mag. It puts 3 shots within 1 inch at 100 yards. Consistently hits a 5 inch steel plate at 300 yards.....fine rifle. It might do better than that with a better shooter than me. I miss that steel plate sometimes.
