Re: Weatherby Vanguard SST .223 Caliber
My Dad has a 223 Sub-MOA Vanguard (the previous one with B&C stock) in stainless. It's a great rifle, and we use it to hone centerfire skills with cheap ammo. The new S2 Vanguard's plastic stock is much, much nicer than the previous plastic stock and I would not hesitate at all to buy one and try it.
Every Vanguard I own shoots extremely well. Triggers on the original (pre-S2 version) were hit-or-miss but I've learned how to tune them, or you can replace them with a Timney. However, the new S2 trigger is nice enough that you probably won't touch it.
Dad is on his way to TX right now with that rifle to use for coyotes in between deer hunting. It wears the Vortex Viper 6-20x44 that we purchased on sale from Cameraland which is probably a bit higher power than you'd like but works great for us for now.
