DBM Questions
« on: June 03, 2017, 04:41:45 AM »
Hello all,
 I'm a newb here so I apologize in advance if  have some silly questions...
 Just picked up a New Vanguard II / Leupold package and was pleasantly surprised to find it has a detachable box magazine... which is something that I have become accustomed to not having, however, this is something handy

 So.... to my questions....

I noticed the DBM is a "3+1". Anyone have ANY idea why 3+1 and not 4+1 like the internal hinged floorplate design of my previous Vanguard?

2: Why plastic? For weight? Is there a metal mag made for it?

 thats about it.... haven't shot the rifle yet... been too busy... but soon!

Thanks everyone

Is this 3+1 a different caliber (magnum vs. non magnum possibly) than your 4+1 is?

Welcome to the Nation. I don't have a Vanguard with a detectable magazine, but many designs have a magazine that stack the cartridges in a straight vertical arrangement versus a staggered arrangement, thus the loss of capacity. Is this the case with yours?

I don't believe anything other than a polymer magazine has been manufactured, but the polymer magazines hold up pretty well.

Welcome to nation !

As Wyominghunter mentioned strait stack vs staggered will make the difference

I normally only load. 3 rounds anyway in my firearms when hunting even if does have 4-5 shot mag.

Enjoy new weatherby!

Have nice day Mike

I have a Vanguard in .308 that I bought an aftermarket DBM kit for. It came with a 10 shot mag. The whole DBM is plastic including the mag.

My old Vanguard is in 30 06 and has 4 shot internal + up the spout if you want it

New Vanguard is in 6.5x55 Swede

Dont want to comment on groups until break in period has been reached... So far?
