I won my first ever Weatherby at a raffle. I was just a kid, just starting to hunt. It was a Vanguard in .308. I shot my first buck with it too!

I won it for $177.50
Cool!! Let me know how it fits together and if you need to make any inletting mods. I'm thinking as long as the barrel contour matches the channel, you should be good.

Are you going to glass bed it?

I'll let you know and post pics when its together. I installed Boyds stock on 3 other rifles (2 were a vanguard and vanguard s2) both only needed minor fitting. 

Ill see how it shoots. As long as the groups aren't terrible. I only use my rifles to hunt and don't get to shoot much. Especially now with a 2 year old son.

JW, you bid on that stock?

No and its quickly slipped out of the range I was willing to pay. The search continues.

Im keeping an eye on it. I'd be spending over $400 on a stock from Boyds.  If it stays under $200-$250 I'd seriously consider it.

That's cool. Keep me posted. I guess I'm just a cheap ass.  :)

I usually am too but its a nice stock!

Saw this stock on eBay today. Going to watch it and see where it goes. Looks like it would fit with minor if any mods needed

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Factory-Weatherby-Howa-1500-Fancy-Checkered-Wood-Rifle-Stock-Long-Action-30-06/391971873592?hash=item5b43582338:g:bNsAAOSwn9VacCC5

Looks like a nice stock! I think I'm going with the Boyds Claro XX stock with an angeled bubinga wood tip and white line spacer. I cant determine if the satin or gloss would fit the rifle better?  ???

Pretty sure they were the 24s, be surprised if any of the 26 Vanguards have found there way to the stores yet.
buds gun shop has some like the 6.5-300 with 26 inch for $512.00

Sorry about your loss Doug. Ill keep you, your wife, and family in my prayers.

I myself lost my dad just over 3 months ago to the same disease but his was esophageal cancer. He was only 47.  Its tough to watch them go but your relieved the pain and suffering is over. Ill keep you in my prayers.

Thanks I'll check it out! What stock are you going with?

I haven't started looking yet. Just dropped over $100 on dies and brass. Still need new bullets, new powder, scope and scope mounting hardware.

When I do the stock though, I'm 95% certain I'll go with a Vanguard or Howa factory stock most likely in a used variety.

I need to get my reloading equipment like the dies, bullets, and brass.  I already have a Zeiss Terra 3-9x42 and Talley mounts for it though. I think I'm going with a satin finish Claro XX walnut stock from Boyds.

Damn gun shops.Dont they know we are in a hurry to get our guns. ;D I usually show up at mine and tell them I am there to get my gun.They say did we call you? And I say no but UPS showed on the internet that they delivered it so I am here to get it.I am sure the wait will be worth it.Congrats on getting yours JWD.

Your right Roger! I'm off tomorrow so I'll probably stop by tomorrow with or without a call. 8)

So... pick it up last night?

Yes I did! If I wasnt still sick I would get it set up!
