    Just took 5 rifles to the range yesterday and all shot exceptionally well except the Weatherby Vanguard. Guns were boresighted at home and I couldn't get the 300 WM zeroed. Holes were everywhere! Took it apart today and noticed that the barrel was under severe tension, touching the front of the wooden stock by .035. Opened up the barrel channel to allow .012 clearance and epoxied the front lug & 2" of the barrel. Will have to wait until I can punch some more paper to tell if I did any good. Also noticed that the factory bullets were .248 from the lands!!! Reloaded what I shot yesterday and set them .011 from the lands. I can't imagine my modifications; not making a huge difference on the range, but would like to know if any Vanguard shooters have had these initial problems???
