+10

I think the only advantage, if that's the right word, to the vanguard is you can get the .257 or .300 weatherby calibers. I like the stock on the Howa better, it's cheaper, and exactly the same action. (Howa actually makes the weatherby vanguard line FYI.)

Look at my last post....
They are awesome rifles. I shoot 7.62x51 and .308 out of mine. Accurate as all Hell.

I got mine on a package deal with a nikko-sterling scope for $500. For a cheaper rifle, they're really pretty impressive. And the scope isn't bad. The only difference between vanguard and Howa is the stamp on the receiver. Howa comes with a pillar bedded hogue over mould stock.

Default weatherby vanguard 223

I bought a weatherby vanguard .223 about a month ago. It wouldn't group 55 grain bullets very well. I went to 40 grain bullets and its awesome. So if you're going to need heavier bullets to disable your target, then you don't want the Weatherby with the 1:12 twist. You probably want a 1:8 or 1:9 twist to stabilize 55-80 grain bullets. The 40 grain bullets will blow a pumpkin up at 200 yards, but I don't know how much penetration you would get with larger game.
