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 reload and no matter what I feed it 168 eldm through 212 eldx all bullets are touching at 100 yards with higher than average velocity. Thank you Weatherby for such an amazing product.
I bought a Vanguard Synthetic in .308 Win and loved it so much that I bought another in .375 H&H Mag. The .308 shoots 0.7 inch 3-shot groups at 100 yards and the .375 shoots 0.6 inch groups -- and that is with me behind the gun -- a better shooter could probably cut those group sizes.
The trigger is great. It shoots great. It fits me great -- being 6'3" tall with long arms some guns don't fit me well, but this gun does. Love it! Thanks, Weatherby!!
Vanguard 338 series 2
I have used and sold weatherby vanguard and Mark v rifles for many many years. The only rifle and company we delt with that you never had a concern over quality and reliability. Great products and great company.
Couldn't Be Happier
Purchased a Stainless Vanguard 2 in 30.06 last year. A great gun for the money in every aspect. As advertised, sub MOA with all the factory ammo I shot. Shoot's an amazing 5 shot group with Federal Premium Trophy Copper 165 grain, .43" at 100 yards. You won't be disappointed with this rifle.
5shots 100 yards
I can cover a five shot group with the base of my 300wdby mag ! A great value out of the box and 18 years later !!!!!
