While other rifles may talk the talk, I prefer to walk the walk. For example, there are guns who tout being SUB-MOA, but I guarantee it from my venerable Vanguard action, hammer-forged barrel and match-grade trigger. You might expect to pay dearly for a guarantee like that, but I’m proud to say that I’m the best value at Weatherby for that degree of accuracy. When you take me hunting, don’t think you have to baby me because of my precision. I’m the Vanguard Synthetic, with a Griptonite® stock and all surfaces designed to repel the harshest conditions.

I am very pleased with this firearm! Well built with great craftsmanship. I sighted her in with open sights (will put a scope on later) to take black bear hunting this year. At 50 yards at the bench I actually put 4 rounds through almost one hole - a 4 leaf clover. This is with Remington 270 gr SP factory ammo. She felt great, easy to handle recoil and trigger felt perfect. The Range Masters now want one as well as some of my friends. Well done Weatherby. A great rifle for the common man.
Does wverything well
Accurate, less kick than my 12g slug gun, perfect balence, quality construction.
Just scoped it with a VX3 2.5-8. Will go to Africa in 16 months, Alaska in 3 years.
Couldn’t be happier with my new gun!
Good but not Great.
Cold weather accuracy good but not great on a north west coast hunt .
Vanguard S2 375 H&H
A great Rifle for the price, I use it on Red Deer & Sambar Deer with 300 grain Projectiles , then down to 235 grain bullets for Pigs. If you want just one Rifle the Vanguard in 375 H&H is it.
hard time feeding flat nose solids. Front sight had a small dent but still very accurate
