Want a sub-MOA rifle that is ready out-of-the-box to take into the woods? Take a look at the new Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic package.
The package starts with a Series 2 Vanguard rifle. The rifle is guaranteed to shoot less than 0.99″ groups with Weatherby ammo. It has all of the features of the non-package gun including a creep-free, two-stage trigger, grip inserts in the Monte Carlo-type stock and a 24″ forged barrel.
The rifle can be chambered in one of 15 different calibers, starting at .223 Remington and going all the way to .338 Winchester Magnum. There are a variety of popular cartridges in between the two extremes in selection.
The package also features a factory mounted Redfield Revenge scope (3-9×42) with a 4-Plex reticle. While I always recommend carrying the gun to the range to check the sighting yourself, with the factory installation, you should at least be on paper with your first shot.
The Redfield Revenge is a scope with a built-in rangefinder. The rangefinder estimates the distance to target in the scope, allowing you to figure the rough distance and the appropriate holdover to make the shot. The scope included in this package weighs about 15 unces.
The package also comes with a rifle case and sling.
MSRP is $999 for any of the packages. A standard Vangaurd Series 2 rifle carries an MSRP of $649.
WEATHERBY® OFFERS VANGUARD® SERIES 2 SYNTHETIC PACKAGE INCLUDING REDFIELD SCOPE
Weatherby’s popular Vanguard® Series 2 Synthetic rifle now comes in a hunting-ready package including a mounted and boresighted Redfield® Revenge™ riflescope, sling and carrying case.
Like all Vanguard Series 2 rifles, the Synthetic is guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. The 3-9x42mm Redfield Revenge scope has a 4-plex reticle and matte finish, and is fixed solidly atop the rifle with Talley-designed Weatherby Vanguard mounts. An adjustable nylon sling and injection-molded scoped rifle case complete the package.
“Our new Vanguard Series 2 Synthetic Package is a tremendous value for hunters,” said company President Ed Weatherby. “The quality and performance are outstanding as well, especially considering the written SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee.”
All Vanguard Series 2 rifles feature a match quality, two-stage trigger and a 3-position safety. The trigger has an auxiliary sear for a “creep free” consistent let-off and pre-set sear engagement at .008-.012. It is adjustable for weight of pull down to 2.5 pounds.
The Vanguard Series 2 Synthetic’s stock has the traditional Weatherby profile that allows quick eye-to-scope alignment and fast target acquisition. Special Griptonite™ pistol grip and forend inserts provide a firm non-slip grip, and a right-side palm swell helps improve handling and control. The 24-inch #2 contour cold hammer forged barrel has a matte bead blasted blued finish.
Vanguard Series 2 Synthetic Package caliber options range from .223 Remington to .338 Winchester Mag., including the .257 Wby. Mag. and .300 Wby. Mag. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $999.
