Out of stock


While other rifles may talk the talk, this one would prefer to walk the walk. For example, there are guns that tout being SUB-MOA, but this one will guarantee it from its venerable Vanguard action, hammer-forged barrel and match-grade trigger. Someone might expect to pay dearly for a guarantee like that, but we’re proud to say that this is the best value at Weatherby for that degree of accuracy. When taking the Vanguard Synthetic hunting, don’t think this one have has to be babied because of the precision. The Vanguard Synthetic, with a Griptonite® stock and all surfaces is designed to repel the harshest conditions.

    I want one


    I’ll stomp my feet and hold my breath until I turn blue if I don’t get one. You guy’s call Sportsman’s and check the price they are offering–you’ll be very happily surprised. When they told me, I almost fell out of my chair. Just for kicks, check on line and see how much the Mark V’s are going for used. I’ve got a Vanguard .300 W’by and the 100 yard test target had one bullet right over another, and another about 3/4ths of an inch away in the 3 shot test group. I don’t know how many eggs you think you need in your beer, but if that isn’t good enough for an out of the box 2nd tier rifle (since there’s no fancy wood, etc.), then you better get your beer money and go to Holland and Holland, Boss, Purdey. or some high end custom maker. I’m sure McMillan can make you something for $5,000 or $6,000 that’ll shoot tighter. The question is: how much is it worth to you to have a rifle you can’t out-shoot? Recoil Magazine this month has a “Super-Duper” with a Night Force Scope on it that Is $16,125. Gun Broker has a rifle that is $175,000!!! Can you afford it? Can you out-shoot it? The Recoil Mag rifle is so precise that only the very best snipers and competition shooters in the world can begin to make it approach to it’s practical limits. And the Gun Broker rifle is so nice that only the very rich can afford to take it hunting and not feel heart broken if it gets scratched. IF YOU place your bullet where it should go, and the animal collapses in a heap, the low, low price of the Vanguard rifle is worth it. My point is this: if Sportsman’s Warehouse sells you this .375 at an amazingly low price, do you still have to have only the very best, or will a workhorse do? After all, you are not going to use the winner of the Kentucky Derby for a plow horse. And .375 ammo doesn’t know or care how much the rifle costs either. It’s just the component of the system that delivers remarkable energy, and some .375 H&H bullet weights have the very same trajectory as some .30-06 bullet weights, out to 300 yards. And if I drop it, or fall on it as I did my brand new Beretta A390 the first time I took it out, well, that didn’t feel too nice. But I lived, and I expect I’ll live if the same thing happens with this one. Get on the phone guys, and start asking – Sportsman’s Warehouse doesn’t even have them in stock yet. And do you remember when the CZ550 was brought out at $600 not so long ago? For a while, it was $600. Then, one night it went to $1100, where it sits today. Out of reach of many of us now, and high priced used too. Don’t hem and haw–call them!! For a little more than 50% of the price of the CZ, you can get enough power to take anything that lives on this side of the world, and most of the rest of it too. I based my ratings on my experience with the Vanguard .300 W’by Mag and it’s test target, so while technically not correct, that’s what I expect to get. If not, I’ll comment on that too. Good hunting to you.

    I’d been considering a 375 h&h for a while but couldn’t justify spending $1100 plus on a just because I want it rifle. When I got the new Weatherby catalog and saw this listed I knew I had to have one. What an awesome rifle! Mounted a Leupold VX-R 2-7×33 in QD rings. Best group so far is 0.9 inches at 100 yards using Barnes Vor-tx 300 grain loads. While I don’t plan to do any all day range sessions with it, it’s surprisingly mild to shoot. 2 consecutive 5 shot groups off of sand bags didn’t cause any discomfort due to the excellent recoil pad and stock design. The action is incredibly smooth and the trigger is the best I’ve had on a stock rifle. The Vanguard 375 is obviously a great value but more important than that, it’s a great rifle.

    I want one too.

  5. killer

    shells very easily. Trigger is light and no creep. Good extraction also.

  6. The Fake Mccoy

    I looked for one of these for a long time, the second I finally found one I bought it. Not only did I want a 375 but I have been shooting vanguards for a decade so i knew I needed this one.

    I got it, mounted the scope on it and went and tried 6-7 sorts of ammo, everything grouped great and i settled on a 270g for my upcoming hunt.

    I ended up taking a 60″ moose in the brooks range of alaska this year with the gun and it worked perfectly.

    I have a vanguard in 30-06 which I bought around 1975. I load my own bullets (hornady 165 gr spritzer bt) and it will consistently put every bullet at 100 yards within 1/4 inch of center. no problems even at much further yardage. I’ve owned many other rifles during my lifetime and the vanguard is undoubtedly the best. I have a 3×9 leupold vari-x 3 sitting on top with leupold mounts and bases. my son just bought the synthetic in 375 hh magnum. fine rifle, best deal anywhere with the vanguard. why pay thousands of dollars more for the same quality you get with the weatherby?

  8. KJH

    This gun came at an amazing price point and performed extremely well out of the box. For an affordable big bore, this is worth every penny.

    Test fired with Sig Whiskey 3 3-9×50 it shoots sub MOA groups at 100 yards with both types of ammo I tried in it. Shooting 235gr and 270 gr factory ammo it was spot on. The trigger is crisp and right at 3lbs.

    If you want to spend less than $600 on a .375 H&H, I recommend this one.

  9. Mike R.

    A little light for a 375 but the stock design soaks up the recoil , very manageable for a 8 lb 375. Shoots great , easily 1 Moa , and I’m not afraid to hunt with it like my other 375’s , I don’t like scratching up $2500 rifles, I wish Weatherby would have brought these out 20 years ago and I wouldn’t have wasted all that money.

  10. bigguy68

    hard time feeding flat nose solids. Front sight had a small dent but still very accurate

  11. Aussie James

    A great Rifle for the price, I use it on Red Deer & Sambar Deer with 300 grain Projectiles , then down to 235 grain bullets for Pigs. If you want just one Rifle the Vanguard in 375 H&H is it.

  12. Red Ferrari

    Cold weather accuracy good but not great on a north west coast hunt .

  13. Indiana James

    Accurate, less kick than my 12g slug gun, perfect balence, quality construction.
    Just scoped it with a VX3 2.5-8. Will go to Africa in 16 months, Alaska in 3 years.
    Couldn’t be happier with my new gun!

  14. Skookum

    I am very pleased with this firearm! Well built with great craftsmanship. I sighted her in with open sights (will put a scope on later) to take black bear hunting this year. At 50 yards at the bench I actually put 4 rounds through almost one hole – a 4 leaf clover. This is with Remington 270 gr SP factory ammo. She felt great, easy to handle recoil and trigger felt perfect. The Range Masters now want one as well as some of my friends. Well done Weatherby. A great rifle for the common man.

  15. Cameron

    What a beautiful firearm, I am so delighted with this beautifully arranged weapon everything is absolutely looks great.The only thing that is not working for me and it is probably my age is the front sight. It gets lost, maybe a fiber optic front sight?
    otherwise many thanks to all of you at Weatherby.
