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.

Bought a Vanguard 4 years ago for an elk hunt and worked up a load. Outstanding performance. Just for fun this year I shot some inexpensive factory ammo through it and got 3/4” groups. Decided to buy a 6.5 Creedmoor this year and looked at other brands. Nothing in comparable price range came close to the quality of materials, fit, and finish. My new Vanguard is on the way!
Best rifle right out the box I have ever owned
After putting 30 rounds through the rifle it shot a three shot group a 100 yds I covered with a bottle cap. The rifle is very solid. Love the stock. Feels very solid and operated flawlessly. A joy to shoot in the 6.5 creedmoor. With quality ammo it’s a great rifle. Would like to own a 257 Weatherby in a lazerguard.
Great value, excellent accuracy
I have the Vanguard Synthetic model in 223 and 6.5 Creedmoor. They are very consistent performers. I did have to do some work on the bolts to make contact with both lugs. Other than that, they have been flawless.
I floated and glass bedded both and find them both more consistent after doing so.
I really hope you roll out the stainless version in 6.5 Creedmoor.... I'll be at the front of the line to get one!
