I saw on the Cabela's website last night they put their remaining stock on the previous generation Vanguard's (plastic stock w/ matte blued metal finish) on sale/clearance for $349.

I went and picked up a 300 WBY Mag this morning and paid $378 out the door. Hard to beat that! If I recall, the caliber's they had listed on the website were .243 WIN, .257 WBY MAG, .270 WIN, .308 WIN, 30-06 SPFLD, .300 WIN MAG, & .300 WBY MAG.

Thought some of y'all might be interested. They're limited to the inventory they have (obviously). There were only 2 300 WBY MAG rifles left at the store where I went.

Sportsmans Warehouse, at least the ones I've been in, are selling them at $349+ tax. Great buy if you like the gun.

You know, in a 'standard' caliber thats a heck of a deal.

Jeez, I "needed" a rifle for a pronghorn hunt. Just bought a Savage .308 from one of my friends. If I hadn't gotten it, I'm thinking one of those .243's would be the ticket.

If somebody wanted a coyote/groundhog/deer gun for cheap that would be it.

the stainless ones from cabelas are great rifles, I have experience with one in 257 Weatherby mag and it is sub moa with the right ammo. I don't know about the blued ones though.

Redneck2 - I'd prob opt for the 257 WBY over the 243 for long range pronghorn hunting.

I do believe that's the cheapest rifle you can get in the proprietary weatherby chamberings it would IMO be an economical way to try out these cool and kinda obscure chamberings.I mean a 349 dollar rifle in 257 weatherby thats pretty cool as far as I'm concerned.

A few months ago, my lgs was selling new Vanguards chambered in .257 Weatherby Magnum (blued with synthetic stock) for $299.99. That's about as cheap as I've ever seen them go for.

1948CJ2A, they had seven in stock and all were gone in three days after I bought mine. It was only after the flush of getting a new gun on the cheap that I found out how much it was going to cost to feed it...:o

Glad you got one! Handloading the .257 WBY MAG (or any of the WBY cartridges for that matter) is the most economical option. Having said that, there was a decent deal on Weatherby factory ammo at Bass Pro back around Christmas time. If I recall it was less than $40 for a box of 20 (95-100 gr spire point or similar).

You're right-but it's probably a rifle I won't be firing much after it's sighted in. I mounted a Redfield 4X12 on it.
