Having said that, I'd do it because there is more bullet choice available for a 30 caliber than a 270 - part of the reason I sold my 270 WSM rifle. And, you'd move up from blued to stainless. If the Vanguard comes in a plain black stock I'd then go ahead and order a new B&C Medalist from Stocky's, bed the action to the stock and start having fun.
I plan on selling the rifle anyway I just went with the trade to help a guy out and thought the weatherby would be easier to get rid of. I just wanted to know if it was good as a dollar value trade. I cant find the stainless vanguard on the weatherby website.
