I was wondering how their rifles compare to
Remington's or Winchester's rifles.

They seem to have the cost going for them,but
how do they compare in the accuracy and
reliability depts?

Buy one, you wont be dissapointed
Ive got one in .270 win. I couldnt be more happy with anyhting else. Weatherby gurantes the 1.5 inch group. And the bolt is smoother than anyhting out there. All for alot cheaper.
Go for it

I owned one in 7mm rem mag. It was OK as far as quality was concerned. Nothing to brag about. The rifle shot extremely well though, couldn't complain about that. Ultimately I just didn't like it, and sold it to buy a Ruger all weather SS Model 77 in 7 mag.

There is nothing wrong with the Vanguard rifles. As far as comparing them with the 700 or the model 70, I would rather have either the 700 or the 70.

If cost is a factor, consider the Ruger 77. I love those rifles. Only drawback is the trigger upgrades, (last time I looked into it), isn't as easily available for the 77 as is the 700 or the 70. Ruger factory triggers aren't the best thats for sure.

At the present time Weatherby had a recall on Vanguard rifles. The recall requires that only the bolt be sent back. The web site has all of the informatiion.

I second what BlackandGreen says. Same rifle lots less cash. Only drawback is lower resale,like I ever sell any guns,Ha .
