Vanguard® Weatherguard™ Bronze Videos

5 reviews for Vanguard® Weatherguard™ Bronze

  1. lynsander

    This review is not only about the gun but also about Weatherby’s customer service. I initially purchased a Vanguard in .300 WM and after trying 2 different brands of ammo I was unable to achieve anything close to spec’s. The short version is customer support could not have been more professional from issuing the RMA, providing updates on the testing/repair process, eventually letting me know there was a defect and Weatherby would be replacing the entire firearm. Since the model I returned was discontinued, Weatherby offered the more expensive Weatherguard Bronze as replacement. Pictures do not do justice to this gun. The barrel marries the pattern in the stock making the transition seamless and the gun is lighter than I expected. It’s 95 in Ga so I’ve not tried it with gloves but with sweaty hands and the gun’s weight, it’s easy to handle without having readjust your grip. Accuracy is better than advertised. I’ve waited a long time for a Weatherby and I’m very happy with the look, fit and finish and more over the accuracy of the Vanguard.

  2. Glen Zarboni

    Bought this rifle in 6.5 creedmoor. My group is touching at 100 yards. Love the feel and the look of this rifle. I can not wait for deer season. For the price I think it can’t be beat.

  3. Rocky Lavigna

    For the price a no brainer.great looking and nice shooting.I would like to tell Clayton that I did put a brake on my 300 weatherby bronze weatherguard and I must say it is very pleasant to shoot with hot loads.

  4. Travis

    After a 1 shot 1 clean break in period, my first 3 shot group was right at a 3/8” group w/factory Nosler ammo! Fantastic gun.

  5. Clayton

    Fantastic rifle. Bought it for an elk gun in .300 WBY Mag. Manageable recoil without a brake for such a light gun. Still going to put a muzzle brake on it to make it more enjoyable. Overall accuracy is great for a production rifle under $1000.

    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.
