Weatherby's Vanguard rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99" or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. Vanguard rifles are equipped with a match quality, two-stage trigger (adjustable down to 2.5 lbs.) and a 3-position safety, with the middle position allowing the shooter to work the action while safety is still engaged. The Vanguard action incorporates a one-piece machined bolt body, fluted for reduction in weight and bearing surface area, while eliminating binding for smooth action. Three gas ports allow high-pressure gases to escape laterally in the event of an accidental case rupture, and the massive M-16-style extractor ensures reliable and positive extraction. Vanguard rifles have a one-piece machined receiver featuring an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity, along with a one-piece trigger guard with a hinged floorplate for easy access to unfired cartridges in the magazine. The Vanguard H-BAR RC model is range certified for supreme accuracy, and comes with printout from Oehler Ballistic Imaging System, including specific load/ballistic data and a computer image of the actual 3-shot group. It is signed and certified by Ed or Adam Weatherby. The hand-laminated, Monte Carlo composite stock has a beavertail forearm and strategically placed vents to dissipate heat, and the CNC machined aluminum bedding plate provides a solid, stable platform. Vanguard RC models have a Range Certified engraved floorplate. The H-BAR RC features a free-floated, cold hammer-forged, heavy barrel with a #3 contour and a bead blasted matte metal finish. This Vanguard H-BAR RC model has a tan stock with spiderweb accents and a 24" barrel.
