Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 Back Country .30-06 Rifle
Weatherby Vanguard Rifles Serial Numbers Lookup
By Randy Wakeman
New for 2013 is Weatherby's Back Country version of their popular VanguardSeries 2 bolt action rifle, which uses a push feed, Mauser-style, dual opposed lug design. Theaction, barrel length of 24 inches, controls, etc., are unchanged from therecently reviewed Vanguard Series 2 Sporter. (See the Rifle Information -Reviews index page.)
The Back Country's chrome moly barreled action is coatedwith a CeraKote Tactical Grey finish for improved external weather resistanceand it has a fluted barrel. The Weatherby Monte Carlo composite stock is pillar-bedded and finishedwith spiderweb accents. Together, these features are designed to shave weightoff of the standard Vanguard Series 2 rifles. That they do, dropping about ¾ poundfrom the standard synthetic and walnut Vanguard models. Unfortunately, recoil increases proportionally and the 2013MSRP is increased from $649.99 (standard synthetic) to a substantial $1399 for the Back Country.
Out of the box, the two-stage trigger was lackluster, breaking at four pounds afterthe first stage take-up. Of course, the Vanguard Series 2 trigger is useradjustable, so you can set the release weight where you want. Just dropthe barreled action out of the stock to adjust the trigger. The pullweight is adjusted by means of a screw with lock nut on the front of the alloytrigger assembly. This allows adjustment between approximately 2.5 and 4.5pounds. Loosen the lock nut and back out the adjustment screw to decrease thepull weight; turn it in to increase the pull weight. Trigger adjustmentinstructions are provided in the Owner's Manual.

Weatherby Vanguard Rifle Serial Numbers
All Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 rifles are guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of.99' or less at 100 yards (SUB-MOA) when used with Weatherby factory orpremium ammunition. Unfortunately, the test rifle was unable to meet thatstandard with the three factory loads I had on hand, none of which grouped particularly well. The best of thebunch was easily the Remington Swift A-Frame in this rifle. However, even theSwift A-Frames struggled to get three shots into 1-1/2 inches (1.5 MOA) at 100yards, unimpressive for a Weatherby Vanguard with a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee andpoor compared to the 3/4 MOA Vanguard .270 Winchester I recently reviewed. (All rifles are ammo sensitive to somedegree and our guess is that none of the tested loads were among this rifle's favorites. -Editor)
My conclusion, based on this testrifle, is not highly favorable. Although the Vanguard Back Country delivers onits promise of less weight, the just adequate accuracy, heavier than idealtrigger out of the box and salty price all point to the Vanguard Sporterinstead of the Back Country. The Vanguard Sporter is a far better-looking rifleat a more modest price.
