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 have enjoyed my vanguard in 300 wm a ton. I can shoot reliably out to our range max @ 600 yrds and it does well with even cheap ammo.
In 300 wm it was kicking a lot and hard to control, so I got the accubrake installed and except for the weight it's now the perfect hunting rifle - cheap enough to not feel bad about dragging it through anything, but tough enough to handle it.
I easily get 3 shot sub MOA @100yrds with handloads.
Best at Price Point
One of the best rifles I’ve shot at this price point, you can’t really beat a Weatherby. Have mine in the classic .257 Wby Mag and put 5 shot groups inside a dime at 300 yds. Love this Rifle.
Nothing not to like about this Rifle. I got it in the 270 caliber, shoots better groups than any costume rifle I own. I shoot long ranges on the plains of Colorado and have been doing so for 45 years. Elk , mule Deer, pronghorns beware . LoL we’ll done Weatherby
Bought a 30-06 and love it
I bought it this year for my first gun for me to buy and put my single shot rossi away this year to try out my new vanguard and i love it
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.
