Weatherby rifles are world renown in big game hunting fields for quality and accuracy. The Vanguard® Series 2 Rifle is well suited for long range shooting—so accurate that Weatherby guarantees it will shoot a 3-shot group of .99" or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) when used with specified Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. At the heart of the Vanguard Series 2's accuracy is a 24", cold hammer forged barrel, and a two-stage trigger that adjusts down to a pull weight of 2.5 pounds. The Vanguard Series 2 features a rugged composite stock with non-slip Griptonite® inserts on the pistol grip and forend, making it a great hunting rifle for extreme weather conditions. A bead-blasted matte blue finish on the metal parts reduces the visibility of the firearm while deer hunting, increasing your odds of success. The Vanguard Series 2 has a fluted bolt with a cocking indicator, a three-position safety that gives the user the option of loading and unloading the rifle while it is on safe, and the ability to lock the bolt closed on safe while carrying the rifle over rough terrain. A hinged floorplate allows for quick and safe unloading of the magazine. Weatherby rifles are offered in many chambers to match your big game hunting, predator hunting, and long range shooting needs.
The fastest, flattest shooting rifles on the market. Delivering the unmatched knockdown power of both Weatherby Magnum and standard calibers. Providing the confidence of guaranteed SUB-MOA accuracy. That's why the Vanguard® has become our most popular rifle option. Shoulder a Weatherby Vanguard and see for yourself. Nothing shoots flatter, hits harder, or is more accurate. Guaranteed.
