I've owned a few .257 Weatherby caliber rifles and I am very impressed with the round itself. I purchased this rifle for deer season last year. The rifle has a real smooth action and has been very reliable. I was skeptical at first due to this being about half the price of my last .257 but I am very impressed with the reliability, accuracy and attention to detail. The only down side is a little shorter barrel than my last .257 and stock isn't as nice. Overall It is a nice rifle at a nice price. BTW I shot two deer both on the first shot at separate times with the this rifle. Bud's has always been excellent for price and shipping. Waiting for stuff to clear is a little slow but I haven't had any problems with any of the products to date.

Had a very pleasant buying experience for this weapon. Had read several reviews in the negative about Bud's but I will say that I saw nothing that was written. The rifle arrived and the picture doesn't do it justice. Beautiful weapon. Mounted optics on it and after running a brush through the barrel away we went. first 3 shot group was 7/8 inch off a bi-pod. 2nd 3 shot group was a hair over 1/2. could not be more happy. Thanks for the awesome service.

This Weatherby has a real nice action and the overall gun is awesome. Shot a half inch group with it at 100 yards and the recoil is very mild. I am very impressed with this gun. It has great balance and a great feel it is a amazing buy at the price. Thanks Buds I will be back.

I purchased this about 6 weeks ago and have put ~80 rounds through it.
The Gun is very well finished. Stainless is tough to machine but Howa does a great job. Action is very smooth right out of the box and machining is very clean. The bore is very smooth and does not copper-foul readily and cleans up quickly with MPro 7 and a brass brushing. I really like the Vanguard S2 triggers. This one came with about 3.5lbs pull that is crisp. Comparing this rifle to my Remington SS 700 it is as good or better a rifle. The extractor on the Vanguard is superior to the Remington's. It's larger and gets a better hold on the rim (albeit no problems ever with the Remington) .
Of the 7 handloads I have tried in it so far all but one combination have shot under 1 MOA and several were single hole groups. This was without any additional tuning of bullet seating depth.
The injected molded stock is OK. It has a good feel. Most people would be happy with it. I don't trust injection mold plastic stocks though to hold POI. I had a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock waiting on the rifle and changed to it before ever firing the first shot. Bell & Carlson supplies Weatherby with the same stock for the RC Vanguards. So for a little less money and absent the engraved floor plate you can have a RC Vanguard except this one is in Stainless Steel.
A Great Rifle all the way around...

What can be said about Weatherby. The Vanguard SS .257mag is nice. Smooth transaction at fair price.
