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.

Best rifle I own
Not nearly the most expensive rifle I own but the best value and rifle I own.
Always been a .270 fan.
Was my go to rifle for hunting as it was inexpensive and carrying on the quad can be damaging.
Then I found it shot better than my more expensive ones at the range.
The trigger has zero creap and is light and crisp.
Changed the internal magazine to an external. That works really well.
Tried multi ammo and handloads.
Federal is the least accurate in this rifle. Sako hammerhead 156 grain is very good out of the box ammo. Too heavy for deer.
Hornady is great all round.
DoubleTap is very good.
All round after some exploring this is the best rifle I own. It treats me far better than I treat it.
cant beat it
i own two vanguards extremely happy with both .one in 270 and one 30-06. both deadly accurate.
Quality Weatherby Vanguard
Bought the Weatherby Vanguard 30 years ago in 7mm Mag. Very accurate, low recoil, and perfect size with the 24” barrel. Still looks like new. Put the extra cash in your scope or binoculars!
Value for money
Just bought a 308W Vanguard S2. The machined bolt body had to my surprise some surface rusting/corrosion, which I only noticed when I brought the rifle home from the dealer (xxl.no). As I was not able to remove the rust by polishing with gun oil, I brought the rifle back to the dealer. Their in-house gunsmith immediately machine polished away the corroded areas, resulting in smoother bolt action.
Later at the shooting range I have extensively compared the new Vanguard to my trusted 30-06 Sako 75 Hunter, and to my surprise I liked the less than half price Vanguard better! Consistent trigger and nice feeling of the rifle made me more confident and relaxed on the range.
The Vanguard range have a strong following here in Norway, next step is possibly modifying the synthetic stock to make the barrel free floating.
Great buy and service from dealer!
Bought this as my first rifle and its quality is excellent and it groups well.
The best purchase in years.
