I'm way out of the loop, so I'm interested what you find out.

I have two vanguards, first one (300 Win Mag) I worked for a whole year to buy when I was 12. Love that gun, I've pretty much passed it to my son who loves it too. (VGX, with a Leupy, so it's pretty.)

Bought a synthetic a decade or so ago to switch to 7mm mag. It's as heavy as the vgx, so no gain there, it's a black plastic Weatherby!

Both of them are very impressive on paper. Killed lots with the 300, done most of my hunting with Encores lately so I haven't bloodied the 7, but I have designs on making it my 800yd gun, it's wearing a 6-24 Monarch with target turrets.

Handload for both, tuning the loads to the gun.

Curious how the project goes into the new fangled!
