Weatherby Vanguard vs Howa 1500
I am looking at getting an inexpensive accurate rifle for target shooting. I have read on this board and elsewhere that the Vanguard is a Howa and I have heard nothing but good about the Howa. Is there really any difference between these 2 rifles? I am looking at an entry level .204, .223 or .243. I see them online between $380-$450. I originally was only interested in the Howa but its difficult to find locally and the Weatherby can be ordered through Wal-mart.
pick one they are the same rifle with a different name. Both are decent starter guns and will last you a life time with proper care and maint.
Plus one on Tango's post.
Howa makes the Vanguard Action for Weatherby. There are very subtle differences, but they are basically the same action.
I believe that Weatherby still offers two models with guaranteed accuracy, I don't believe the Howa 1500 does, but it will shoot with the Weatherby all day long.
Either one is a great choice -
