    Thinking about a Weatherby Vanguard in a 240. Any opinions on the Vanguards. Any good or bad experience with a Vanguard or this caliber?

    I know two friends that have Vanguards and are very happy with them. I think they are one of the best values out there. 25-06 why the 240 WM? Just curious.

      Its a hot rod. Im into the light calibers scooting along. Something to reload for and tinker with. For whitetail and coyote. I know the 243 or a 25-06 will do the samething.

        240WbyMag is a good caliber, especially if you reload for it. Can't beat the Vanguard for the price.

          JHP do you reload for one. If so what bullet and powder do you use? Do you hunt deer with it.

            I have a .240WM in a Weatherby Mark V Ultra Lightweight and I love it. I got it mainly as a walk-about coyote rig, and load both 60-grain and 85-grain HPs. I haven't shot a whitetail with it, but the 100-grain Partition should be deadly.
