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