well I am a weatherby addict but Mark V and not vanguard. If it were me I would not have a custom rifle made with a vanguard action. I would choose a remington over a vanguard and I am not crazy about remingtons.
you can get a mark V 22-250 from impactguns a quite a reasonable price. I have tried to put the image and price here (here goes)
WEATHERBY MKV SUPER VARMINT MASTER 22-250
I am impressed it works. If 22-250 does not float your boat, get it re-chambered for the 22-250 Ackley Improved (shoot cost about 100 dollars). You would shoot 22-250 ammo in he rifle and when the cartridge is ejected, it will be the 22-250 AI. Easy to get dies and then reload your own. The above rifle is in fact very well made and uses a Krieger barrel as I recall and 26 inch.
