Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 stainless 30-06. Most accurate ammo for this rifle appears to be (factory) Barnes Vor-tx which prints well with both 150's and 180's

They're great groups.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with the performance of this rifle. Just ordered an Accuguard in 300 WM, Hope I can get it to do the same.

Nice shooting, I love my Accuguard in 257 Weatherby and I'm sure yours in 300  will be a shooter too.

Can't complain about sub 1/2 moa! A 257 bee is in my future I think.. Maybe I'll buy one for the wife for Christmas and it can live in my safe.
