The best value with guaranteed sub-MOA accuracy on the market today, Weatherby's Vanguard Series 2 rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99 in or less at 100 yards when used with specified Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. The Ranged Certified Varmint Vanguard is a specially designed varmint rifle with added accuracy assurance. The pillar-bedded non-slip green composite stock has a Monte Carlo raised cheekpiece, a Pachmayr Decelerator pad, and a beavertail forearm with strategically placed vents to dissipate heat and promote repeatable accuracy. The 22" cold hammer-forged barrel is free-floated with a recessed target crown and a CNC-machined aluminum bedding plate provides a solid, stable platform for the barreled action. Weatherby's three rings of steel are still present of course and the RC's 3-position safety is easy to use and secures the rifle against costly accidents. The floorplate is engraved with the Range Certified logo and a factory-shot target signed by Ed Weatherby is included. This rifle is being sold as new in the original factory box.
