    @nor-west - don't hesitate BUY IT. I'll pick it up for you and have the barrel half shot out before you can get here to try it yourself!!

    Exactly. Share the love @nor-west.

    When we have burnt the barrel out between us you can re-barrel it with another hot rod calibre for us to move onto. We will PM you reports.

    Think youll find it is a fibergaurd model which weigh about 7 3/4 pound bare rifle. I don't remember a liteweight vanguard long action being made in any cal with a B&C stock. Just my 2c worth
    Weatherby mkv or nothing
