Got a 243 series 2
Brand new 1st trip to the range after zeroing it at 100 yards
3 shots using federal fusion 95 gr 3 shots you could cover with a dime
I have another series 2 270 I can almost shoot this well

That’s why I promote the vanguard line of rifles

I have a Sporter in 257 Wea and a S&W Howa 1500 ( Basicaly the same rifle) in 25/06. Great accurate rifles, although a tad on the heavy side. At the very least the equal of the Rem 700 and Win 70.

I like mine. It now what you call old school for a .257 now, it has the 24” barrel where they come with a 26” barrel now. Glad they are doing this now.

Vanguards are great accurate rifles. I also like that most of the Weatherby calibers are 26 inch barrels now.

I've owned three Vanguards and still have two of em. I've become pretty fond of Remington 700s as of late but I won't part with either of my Vanguards. I also plan to buy a MK V after Weatherby has relocated to Wyoming. I want to support Weatherby's move to a more gun friendly state.

Unless they change, Howa makes them for Weatherby.

We were talking about a Mark V when we were talking about Wyoming

My series 2 stainless 30-06 gets sub 1/2 minute groups with both 150 and 180 Barnes Vor-tx ammo.. who needs more than that in a hunting rifle!? Still waiting on my new Accuguard in 300 win - I'm hopeful I can get similar results with that gun. Love the Vanguards!
