The ultimate advantage to the hunter

Vanguard #2 contour barreled action in combination with the Approach® pattern gives an ultimate advantage to the hunter during his time afield.

  1. jeff penland

    perfect gun in 300 weatherby magnum shoots five shots 1 1/8 at 100 3/4 with 3 shots of weatherby loaded nosler accubonds 180 gr. when i got it me and my dad put the scope on it i put a vortex viper 6.5-20×44 with a one piece dnz scope mount. dead on at 300 yards. i shot four whitetails in the 2023 season three of them 100-120 yards one was about forty three weighed 100 pounds one weighed 85 no more meat loss than a 270 win or 308 win. its a awesome gun 10/10 would recommend

  2. Harry Babin

    6.6-300 is perfect for Texas Sendero’s that go on forever! Using Weatherby ammo I get one jagged hole. Using a 10 power Leupold Sniper Scope it’s a perfect stand rifle! Will use on Nilgai soon.

  3. Brian

    Bought the Vanguard Badlands in .308 for an Africa trip coupled with a 3×9 scope. Rifle performed perfectly. Amazing firearm right out of the box, especially when considering the price. Shot multiple different types and sizes of game from short and long distances with confidence. Great looking gun too.

  4. Paul

    I purchased in 25-06 and mounted a 50mm scope to it. Took it to the range to sight and season and it is a tack driver. Once I got it where I wanted it, the edges of the hi viz target holes were all touching. You can’t ask for more than that. My bone to pick is that the recoil pad is off a bit and I’ll need to either remove and reattach it or shave some of the over hanging rubber off. The camo pattern looks good but looks stretched a little in a couple of spots. All in all an excellent tool for the woods. First weekend out I dropped (where it was) a moving coyote at 160yds.

  5. Wallop

    Finally! A 26” barrel on a vanguard magnum chamber! Now add the updated trigger, cerakote finish, MOA at 100 yds. Guarantee all for well under $1,000.00! You got something to talk about! Just mounted my Nikon monarch BDC and cannot wait to dial everything in! Should be my go to antelope, deer and if I ever draw the tag bighorn sheep rifle! .257 Weatherby magnum! Happy hunting!

    Impressive rifle!

  6. Casper

    This rifle is awesome and add a Leupold 2 X 12 Scope on it and you have a rifle that can hunt any animal (Deer, Elk, Bear, Moose, etc…) at almost any distance (inside 600 yards) in the US. The Vanguards have always been a top notch rifle and now with this Camo it makes it the perfect rifle for the serious hunter.

  7. Jk20pro

    I just received my Weatherby Vanguard Badlands today. It’s beautiful, but fit and finish seem sub par. My burnt bronze cerakote was damaged out of box, a chip down to bare metal and what looks like a scuff mark after chip about 6 inches long. Also, recoil pad looks like no effort was put in to aligning it to the stock. I was super excited for this gun, waited to buy it, and I’m a little bummed it wasn’t perfect out of the box like I hoped. Maybe it will shoot great to make up for it.

    Great price especially for a young boy or girl just starting out hunting

    The first thing you’ll notice about the Vanguard Talon, aside from Weatherby’s legendary fit and finish, is the stock. The Talon is equipped with a carbon fiber Peak 44™ Blacktooth™ stock, the same stock we use on the Backcountry Ti 2.0. To help reduce the recoil on this ultra-light set up, the stock features Peak 44™’s 3DHEX® recoil pad and threaded Accubrake ST.
