Details

In a way I’m a Turkey gun. No, not because I was built to hunt gobblers – but because my beautiful Monte Carlo stock is crafted from fine A-grade Turkish walnut. It has an ergonomic geometry that becomes an extension of yourself with a solid cheek weld. I have a palm swell grip to keep your trigger hand in a comfortable, neutral position when squeezing my two-stage match trigger. As for turkeys, some states allow centerfire rifles on gobblers. If you use me for that, my 24” #2 contour barrel will put dinner on your table.

  1. The Best Rifle I have Ever Owned!

    By Paul October 02, 2017

    I bought my .257Wby Vanguard in '02 or '03,
    Only paid $399. Mine is not the Sub MOA model, but definitely shoots Sub MOA. I have killed dozens of Whitetails, hogs, and coyotes from 25yds to 303yds. I have many other rifles, but this one is my favorite.

  2. Weatherby Accuracy at its finest

    By Logan September 15, 2017

    2016 was my first solo hunt, and I was able to bag a nice 7pt whitetail here in Mississippi.
    My sporter was a Christmas gift from my Grandfather, got it chambered in 7mm rem mag, and paired with a Nikon Pro-Staff 3-9x50.
    I would recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a gun that will rise above the others.
    Shoots great, hits hard, looks beautiful, and is going to help me create many memories with my Grandfather.
    Thank You Weatherby, and GodBless!

  3. A future family heirloom.

    By Logan. E.D September 13, 2017

    This year I turned fourteen and for Christmas my Grandfather(who has owned a weatherby for years) got me a weatherby of my own, I love it.
    It's beautiful, fun to shoot, and is something I will cherish forever.
    I would recommend the sporter to anyone who is looking for something that will look beautiful, and shoot great.
    I would like to thank my grandfather for a Christmas i'll never forget,
    And weatherby for a rifle that will ensure many great memories with my Grandfather.

  4. My new Vanguard Sporter, chambered 300 Win. Mag.

    By Piper Preston June 04, 2017

    I ordered it thru a local FFL dealer on Friday, 26 May, 2017. Arrived a week later at my dealer for pickup.Took it to the range the next day. I was more than pleased with its hard-hitting power along with clear sub-MOA, showing consistent 1-inch shot groupings at roughly 100 yds. I had a Mark V years ago, and would surely have held on to it had it not been stolen. Since then I dreamed of a day when I could own another Weatherby. After learning about the founder's Vanguard model, I made it a point to save my money until I could buy one. I am proud of it, and intend to keep it as my favorite rifle till the good Lord finally calls me away from it. I would recommend this rifle to anyone who is looking for one that shoots flat, straight, and hard same as this rifle is advertised!

  5. Awsome

    By Shane May 31, 2017

    I have had my 25-06 weatherby vanguard for two years, In this caliber it is by far the most awsome rifle they I have owned in over 40 years of hunting. I was so impressed that I replaced my old 22-250 with a new vanguard this year.
