Weatherby rifles at Omaha Outdoors include the affordable Vanguard and the world-class Mark V. Weatherby rifles, and Weatherby calibers, have been setting accuracy and velocity records all around the world, and the name alone garners much respect in precision shooting circles. While you'll get the full Weatherby experience by picking up a Mark V in a Weatherby caliber like .338-378 Weatherby, you're not giving up any quality or pride of manufacture when you buy a Weatherby Vanguard Youth in .223 Rem to help your child bring home their first buck.
The Vanguard is Weatherby's entry level rifle, and yet it carries with it the same SUB-MOA guarantee as the Mark V – three shots inside 0.99" at 100 yards with Weatherby or other match ammunition. That's a serious claim for a rifle costing less than some competitors' basic rifles, but Weatherby isn't afraid to back it up with real world performance and results. Models of the Vanguard range from safari rifles in .375 H&H with beautifully engraved wooden stocks to stainless synthetic mountain guns in 308 meant to be lightweight, packable, durable, and more than accurate enough to take down an elk. Most of the time when one considers an entry level rifle from a manufacturer with a premium model, thoughts of it are quickly discarded as soon as the premium rifle shows up. But we're proud to carry Vanguards in our lineup as a Weatherby dealer.
The Mark V is the premium rifle in the Weatherby online catalog. It's the pride and joy of Weatherby and that shows in every finished rifle. Many options are available, from blued and polished walnut stock heirloom hunting rifle, to extreme-condition-capable synthetic stock sniper rifle. All Mark Vs carry the 0.99" at 100 yard 3 shot group guarantee, but you might find that some, like the Mark V Krieger Custom Rifle, shoot a little bit better than that. Mark Vs can be had in standard industry calibers like 308 Win and 300 Win Mag as well as the proprietary and very powerful Weatherby cartridges such as 257 Wby, 300 Wby, and 30-378 Wby.
