Vanguard Carbine

The Weatherby Vanguard Carbine is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., .243 Win., 7mm-08 Rem. and .308 Win. It is one of 11 models in Weatherby’s Vanguard series, but what makes it unique is its short 20″ barrel, which puts its overall length at 40″. It also has a Monte Carlo composite stock and fore-end.

Vanguard models share a number of common characteristics including a fully adjustable trigger that is initially factory-tuned to 3.5 pounds. It has a fluted bolt body that reduces surface area and weight. The rifle has a cocking indicator that visually indicates whether the it’s uncocked or cocked. Along with a hinged floorplate, all Vanguard models have a cold hammer forged barrel, meaning a machine carefully pushed a mandrel through it to rifle the bore.

Weatherby recommends the Vanguard Carbine as a truck or working ranch rifle.
