I'm not a big vanguard fan, but I like that spiral fluted barrel. Now if they offer that spiral barrel option though the custom shop on Mark V's  8)  ;D Rob
Yeah, I like the spiral fluting also, but thet're not offered on the Custom Shop Vanguard options either.

Steve is a lefty and hunts with a Carolina Custom rifle in most episodes with vortex optics
a 1/2" group is good enough for the girls I go with!

If you're talking about the Meat Eater link, when you scroll over the rifle, you can see the bolt. If thats what you're talking about.

All i'm saying is if you are making a rifle based on a show and more importantly a person that is left handed, you might want to consider making a left handed option. I would buy in heartbeat if they did.

I thought that the spiral fluting might be cost prohibitive compared the the std. fluting, but looking at different mfg's, prices, it doesn't look like it. (unless you want something special) Example:

I think it's a sharp looking rifle and have always considered the Vanguard a good value for the price.
Come and take it.

Can someone more informed than myself please explain the advantage of a spiraled barrel?

Supposedly it cools faster, more "air" surface.  I think it's mostly just looks.  :)

Makes sense. Thank you! I gather spiraled barrels would appeal to those who can't shoot well requiring multiple shots thus heating up the barrel?  ;)
