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.

The Best Rifle I have Ever Owned!
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.
Weatherby Accuracy at its finest
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!
A future family heirloom.
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.
My new Vanguard Sporter, chambered 300 Win. Mag.
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!
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.
