Just bought a used Weatherby Vangaurd in 270 Winchester.What do you think of the quality of these guns. I think it feels like a good rifle. Came with a Redfield Revolution 3-9x50 scope. Nice clear scope.
I missed a chance at Vanguard in 300 wm recently....but I really don't need one.
I got to shoot with the folks from Weatherby in CA at the range they used near me,they let me try several over the years...I kick myself for the deals I missed back then.....
My buddy has one in 30.06, and as Rooster says...it is a bit on the heavy side. All he's done to it so far was to add a Boyd's stock. It's accurate as all get out, and he's never had a problem with it.
I bought one last year in .308 and I love it! I've shot several sub MOA groups with factory ammo off of nothing more than a backpack. It is a tad heavy and the scope I added didn't help, but all that mass soaks up the recoil and I can fire this gun for days.
