Weatherby Vanguard Sub-MOA .257 Weatherby Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Slim and trim, the Vanguard sporter was comfortable to shoot and carry -- though no lightweight -- and would most likely be a better all-around rifle than the other two. However, specifically for long-range varminting, we gave it a Conditional Buy rating.

We liked the side venting of the bolt. Most rifles direct escaping gas into the magazine. The Vanguard Sub-MOA needed a lighter trigger, we thought, and more accuracy to live up to its name.
