No creep, no drag, dead-clean release, 3 ½ pounds every time, and if you even think of messing with it you’re nuts. Howa has always turned out beautifully finished guns, but the Series 2 rifles I’ve handled have gone a step beyond that. They are literally flawless. The fit and finish are perfect.

What kind of REM does Weatherby Vanguard S2 have?
After such a good experience I deceided to go out and get a 223 rem in a S2 as well and topped it with a Elite 3200 5-15. I had a bunch of rounds loaded already with Varget and 55gr blitzkings that I figured I would try out of it to start. Yet again I was not dissappointed with the rifle averaging .3″ groups at 100 and .75″ groups at 200!

What kind of trigger does Weatherby Vanguard 243 have?
Currently own 2 of them – 7mm-08 and a 243. Both stick to the guarantee of sub-moa out of the box. I haven’t tried anything over 200 with the 7mm but the 243 I’ve taken out to 500 with 85 gr partitions and 90 AB’s. The triggers are nice, slight take-up on the first stage and a clean break on the 2nd.
