I ordered two flemish strings for my Excalibur. Really nice knowing I will not need to find a bow shop if something happens.

That is a good question. I would say .240,.300 or .340 in Weatherby calibers. If I would really narrow it because of the price point of rifle I would say a .240 Weatherby or a .375 H&H because of not being able to get a .340 in a Vanguard. Ammo price part doesnít really have to much to play with it cause with any of them I am not going to have 1k rounds for them anyway.

I would definitely get a .340 if it was in a Vanguard S2 or if I had enough money for another Mark V.
I really like the Vanguard rifles. It is an affordable way to get into Weatherby calibers.
My want list is the .240, maybe another 6.5-300,.300 and a .375 H&H.
Really the .240 makes the most since because of my daughters. I have the desire to get the others in the Vanguard because of them putting 26Ē barrels on them and the .375 well, thats just because why not. I have came very close a few times getting one but backed away. Maybe next year on the .375?

I'd add some variety.

257wby
300wby
340 Wby.
They donít have the .340 in the Vanguard line or I would. I have the .257 and had a .300 but got rid of that one cause someone gave me more than what I had in it.

We had a few and helped raised several more. Some were hard to give back.

I think you should buy 2 Vanguards in 6.5-300!!! That way when your daughters go hunting you'll each have a 6.5-300 to hunt with!!!

+1   :)

Good call

I have the 6.5-300 in the Accumark model cause when Weatherby came out with it I said I was going too.
When the discussion came about bringing this round out I suggested that they use the Vanguard to scratch the surface and see how well it would bite. Now that they are chambering it in the 6.5-300 now as well(with a 26Ē barrel!!) I kind of want one.
So how dumb is it to buy one if I already have one rifle in that caliber?

With diabetes being something that surrounds me with family members. I need to start taking care of myself instead of getting fat and not taking care of myself. I have been borderline with my sugar for several years. I have also gained over a 100 lbs the last 7 years. I will lose some but gain twice the amount back. I am sure bigger paychecks equates to more beer and bigger meals. We hardly ever make meals from scratch and do more pickup or eat out. Our schedules donít help with us working long hours and girls in sports all year around.
Glad to hear that you have done life changers to improve your health and best of luck with your future with your fight with diabetes.
