    The weatherby vanguard is a great rifle that uses the howa 1500 action. I own a howa myself and it's super reliable and super accurate.

    Another note: i'm not a huge fan of the weatherby stock. The howa came with a rubberized hogue stock, which is extremely comfortable. If youre keeping your options open take a look at the howa aswell, considering theyre basically the same rifle

    My howa is in .223. Super accurate at 100 yrds with just a 4x scope. (4-12x40 coming for x.mas) :)

    My Weatherby Vanguard is a .308 and I love it. It definitely is more accurate than I am capable of. Only gripe is the recoil which I expected on light synthetic stock. It is manageable, just more than I'd prefer.

    I have a Vanguard in .243. I put a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock
    with the aluminum bedding on it and it made a significant difference
    in the rifle's accuracy. It shoots way better than I am capable of.

    Oh, yeah I've seen that one. Where's the guy with the rubber band guns? I'll bet those two could get together and really have some fun!

    I've got a Vanguard .308 and have been really happy with it. It will hold a solid 1" pattern at 300 yards off a bench and bags (not tried it beyond 300 yards). I've had it for many years and never had a single issue.
    I'd be willing to trade it for the right Asian escort though.

    For a rifle that shoots like that, the escort would just be out of business. Many bars provide the same service for the cost of a 12 pack.

    1" at 300 yards, I'd move the target on out a little farther just to see what it can do.

    Which one? Was it the one who always writes poetry and puts the links into the poem?

    Rubber band guns? I guess I missed that one.

    Yeah, the guy had some really cool rubber band guns, the same as I see at gun shows set up for the kids.

    I'd find some pics of some similar, but he really got some folks (including me) heated with the way he seemed to be posting all over the place. He actually had one "I have this really cool old gun, how much is it worth?" Some one actually replied "about $2.50"

    The product was neat, but the guy was a stone cold spammer.

    Anyways, we are WAY off topic. So sorry OP.
