Re: Weatherby .257 Vanguard..??

Sully, you could probably buy that gun for cheap, and put it in a B&C Weatherby stock like they make for the Accumarks and bed the lug and action and have a real shooter for a REAL good price.

For the record, you KNOW that's a badass caliber...You don't need them to tell you that.

Let me know a out the .25-06 AI stuff...I am planning on ordering stuff probably next weekend (not this up-coming weekend) from Midway, so just let me know.

Re: Weatherby .257 Vanguard..??

There was a guy on here shooting some nice groups @ 970-something yards with an out-of-the-box Vanguard S2 .257 Wby...So I'd assume they're fairly accurate.

I remembe the thread was in the Long Range Hunting & Shooting section. But can't remember what thread it was, or who posted it.

I just fired two groups at 220 yards with old model Vanguard that went 3/4" and 1 1/4". Straight factory. It is a great shooter with anything but Hornady GMX bullets.
