The U.S. Postman’s creed, with a few little changes, is me in a nutshell: “Neither rain nor snow, nor sleet nor dark of night shall stay this rifle from the swift completion of my appointed rounds.” As my name implies, I am fully guarded against weather – so you can take me into the nastiest environments without a single worry about how I’ll perform. My Monte Carlo stock is made of ultra-tough Griptonite® and all my metalwork has maximum protection with a great-looking Cerakote® finish. Now let’s go deliver some heat.

This rifle is fantastic out of the box. I got it in 6.5 Creedmoor. My only reservation is that it does not shoot the Hornady 143 Precision Hunter well > 1.5" MOA, but 120, 125 and 129 grain is sub 1" MOA. Overall though, I am extremely satisfied with my Weather Guard in every other aspect.
Hello all !! I bought this weatherby rifle chambered in 6.5 creedmore, I was a little hesitant because it wasn’t a free floating barrel, but too my surprise this rifle is absolutely amazing, it’s very accurate, I mean three shots under an inch, it’s well balanced, it functions flawlessly, the trigger is perfect, the finish is amazing, I’ve had it in the rain, the heat and the cold so far , no rusting, no blemishes etc, I’ve shot and owned some really nice high quality rifles, and some cheaper ones as well, but this rifle is my favorite hands down !! And the 6.5 creedmore is absolutely fantastic on whitetail deer.. my first weatherby and my first 6.5 .. I’m very very impressed.. it’s weatherby for me , from here on out.. thanks weatherby for a great rifle !!
Purchased the .257 Weatherby
I purchased a Weatherguard .257 Weatherby Mag in 2016 . The gun is unbelievable !! We had rain and snow the 1st week of our deer season and the gun never got one little spot of anything on it !! The rifle is a tack shooter !! Covered a 3 shot group with a dime @ 200 yards , not to shabby LOL Also took a PA Black Bear with one devastating shot "
Bear never took a step" !! This is my second Weatherby and can't say enough great things about them !! Keep up the great work !
Sounds like everybody is pretty much satisfied with the Vanguard
Tack driver . . .
I purchased my 7mm-08 and immediately drop shipped it to Hill Country Rifles in Texas. I had them aluminum pillar and glass bed the receiver and floor plate, free float the barrel, re-crown the barrel, tune-up the the trigger as well as do an inspection on the chamber, barrel, head spacing, etc.
I think I paid $600 for all this work including shipping back to Georgia. I have a target where they dialed in my Nikon scope and it shows a 100 yd 3-shot group at .354" which is INCREDIBLE !!!
The reason I went with the Weatherby Vanguard was based on a recommendation from HCR. The owner stated that right out of the box the Weatherby Vanguard is by far the best production gun and that they see the best results and happiest customers when using the Vanguard series.
The 1st kill was a single shot on a nice 7 pt Whitetail. My son got his 1st deer/buck on my new gun which I'm thrilled about!!!
