Title: Just made another Weatherby follower

At the range on an overcast day figuring no one will be there. No such luck . Started getting used to my Vanguard trigger and someone else showed up. We started talking when we were walking down to see how our groups were doing. Telling him how accurate the Vanguard is with hornady American whitetail ammo. Looked at my group sub at 100. Looked at his one hole. Asked what he was shooting, it was a Savage in 6.5x284 norma. We shot a bit more and then we switched rifles. He was really impressed of how the Weatherby handled and how it fit him. I was pretty impressed with his Apex hunter, just the accuracy though. He was mentioning it was shooting sub @ 400, dont if he was bs ing or not.

I love all my Vanguards! What caliber is your vanguard?

Hard to deny savage accuracy. Id be hesitant to hunt with them though. Had a couple that had some strange feeding/cycling issues. Probably some simple fix but odd and not trustworthy

By all accounts Savages shoot well and they have some great ideas, but they have to be among the worst looking rifles out there. For some beauty is in the accuracy.

savage and the 6.5-284 are known for accuracy

wish they offered some better looking options...

My brother had a real nice looking Boyds stock and muzzle brake on his 111 in 6.5-284 and it looks pretty good but for no reason I can figure out, sometimes a round gets stuck or wont chamber. Super accurate though
