    Quite a few, yes. German Mark V rifles in various calibers.

    I have a Weatherby Vanguard rifle in .223. It is the low priced version made in Japan. Still a very good shooting rifle. I am putting up a picture but it is a plain jane rifle with black synthetic stock.

    My best friend has two Vanguards: one in .300 Weatherby and the other in .257 Weatherby. Both of these rifles shot 1/4" groups with the Barnes TSX. He loves 'em. He has a Mk V in .340 Weatherby that shoots 1" 300 yard groups with a 225 gr. TTSX. It's AWESOME on elk.

    I much prefer either of these rifles to the Savage just for feel and ergonomics. I wouldn't own a Savage myself for that reason (had one and got rid of it).

    Hunting buddy swears by them, so I found a mark V made in 2001 in 30-378 on our local computer list. Macmillan Stock, bedded, super light trigger, and had a decent burris scope. Sub MOA gun for sure and I only paid $1000 bucks for the gun; after shooting it; I'd paid way more if I had to. My buddy has half a dozen of them all accumarks that he bought new for around $1600 each but might be cheaper other places. I'd buy them used if I could and hear to steer clear of the vanguards, but who knows.

    I like some of their calibers and nice guns to hand down to the kids. Look on brandx, you'll get a better idea on pricing.

    I wanted a Weatherby when I was in the market; but due to the dealers near me not having a new Weatherby, I bought a Howa instead; which has the same action as a Weatherby Vanguard.

    I have a Vanguard in 243 and really like. The first and only time I hunted with it I killed a nice little buck. Amazed at what that 95gr Speer SPBT did to that deer. Handles very well and quite accurate. My first synthetic stock but may get used to it.
