Weatherby rifle engineers have expanded the California company’s catalog with a pair of non-typical offerings, both in the Vanguard rifle line—2016’s Modular Chassis and this year’s Vanguard Adaptive Composite (VAC). Both rifles are available in .223 Rem., 6.5 mm Creedmoor and .308 Win. and feature the Vanguard’s acclaimed action and threaded, hammer-forged barrels, but both are distinct from traditional Weatherby rifles with regard to their stocks. The Modular Chassis features a machined aluminum stock, a Hogue pistol grip and a fully adjustable Luth-AR buttstock. The VAC’s synthetic target-style stock has a pronounced, rubberized pistol grip, an adjustable cheekpiece and retractable buttpad to customize length of pull. weatherby.com
