Anobody bought a Weatherby 30-06 at Walmart lately?

Hi,

First time posting here. I was at Walmart today. I have looked at the Winchester 70 and Remington 700 in 30-06. Both good guns. They also have the Weatherby Vanguard and I think it can be ordered in 30-06 for around $500 He anybody got a Weatherby lately in 30-06 in particular? I would liek opinions. I have settle on the 30-06 caliber. All input appreciated.

Welcome to BGH
I'm a Remington fan . I guess because I have a Rem700 BDL in 270 and my son has the BDL in 30.06.Now the Weatherby? They are no doubt high quality firearms and always have been.
It is really now up to personal likes and dislikes. Don't buy any rifle unless you like the feel,look and price regarless of my opinion or anyone elses.
Can't go wrong with your calibre choice either. Thumbs up

Welcome aboard. Hammer's got it just right. Not many bad rifles made anymore. I used a Vanguard a bit when they first came out and liked it. Figured I'd get one someday but never have. I think it's built by Howa.

A buddy of mine recently got a Vanguard 3006 from Walmart. It's a good solid rifle and he really likes it.

I'm a Remington fan as well but the Weatherby Vanguard is a good "no-frills" rifle. All it is missing is the gloss finish and deep bluing that made the weatherby name. It is solid and accurate so what more could you ask for?

That Wal-Mart Weatherby is probably the best rifle deal I've ever found. Mine's in .300 Weatherby and not .30-06, but otherwise it's been great. The Howa action is smooth, the only thing that I've noticed might be on the "weak" side is the floorplate. Just seems a little flimsy compared to my M700s.

But, that's not been an issue. Great gun, even better price. This one's a shooter.
