Any opinions on the Vanguard S2? I am looking to purchase one in 270Win.

It will be used for hunting and occasional target shooting.

I have it in .257  and the rifle shoots fantastic. In fact I am going through and thinning out many hunting rifles now and it is one of my 10 or so keepers in very good company.

I have the original in .270 and the s2 in .270 as hunting rifles. Love them. Pretty accurate for the price . Buy one !

Update: I got the S2 in 270. It is a shooter.

Next will be a stainless 257WBY mag.

I just bought one of the S2's in .243 with a walnut stock

haven't been able to shoot it yet but the new S2 triggers really feel good

I already own an older Vangaurd in .223 and while its trigger is a bit gritty that rifle still shoots really well, so I'm looking forward to see what the new S2 will do
