They really are excellent little guns, my version isn't even the sub-MOA, it's just the Blued Synthetic, but will still put 5 shots into .8" at 110 yards with the cheapest ammo I can buy- American Eagle 50 grainers..


This was with a slight right-to-left crosswind, hence the bullet stikes being slightly to the left of where they should be.

That sounds great. Congrats on acquiring a good rifle.

500,

Looks like you got yourself a shooter. And believe it or not I think it will get tighter groups the more you shoot her and get the ammo tuned!

Great group!

Weatherby Vanguard is an under rated rifle IMHO. I love the adjustable trigger as well.

Good shooting guys!!!

i agree 100%. I mean when you can put 6 shots inside 1" at 100 yards with a stout wind there is something to be said. and when i get a chance with no wind i will make sure those 6 bullets are mating the first hole. I dont care who you are a three shot group with all three holes touching or inside of each other is pretty damn sweet. and people think you need a mark V to do this but Vanguards are very capable of it.
