I just got a weatherby vanguard sub-moa in 300wsm and the trigger is just plain nasty! Called my local gunsmith and he said that

    As someone who has been training Army scouts and sharpshooters for almost 8 years now, I would recommend any improvement that you feel nessisary for you to feel comfortable with you rifle. When you are making that shot, there should never be any hesitation in your mind about your equipment. Just because you can shrug off a heavy recoil, doesnt mean you should. You shouldn't get the rifle and then only shoot it a few times to get it zeroed. You should be shooting that enought that you know your rifle's ballistics without a second thought. That means shooting quite a bit. With a heavy hitting caliber like the 300WSM(and it is a heavy hitter) if you are practicing like you should, you could very likely begin to develop a flinch. I've seen it happen to seasoned shooters, not just newbies. So bear that in mind when you're figuring out what to do with your rifle. I personally have a 300WM Vanguard that I baught as a platform rifle. As well as the muzzlebrake, and the timney trigger, I floated the barrel. Beyond that, just make sure you get good glass. Happy hunting!

    I just got a Vanguard and the trigger is to die for. 3 lbs, a nice crisp break that feels un beleivable. I would send it back to Weatherby, they are marketing their triggers real heavy, I don't think they want a bad trigger with an upset owner spoiling their marketing plan.

    Yeah the t3 is very light weight my bro has one in 270 wsm. I was torn between the tikka and the weatherby, hope i made the right decision. Thanks for the input all of you!

    I heard that that some of the springs on these triggers were outside the acceptable tolerances but it wasn't caught until many vanguards were shipped. As Beekeeper said, maybe they are willing to fix them because they should not have been shipped in the first place.

    I guess I got lucky, the triggers on my 2 moa's are fine.

    My .300 WSM is in an extremely lightweight Tikka T3. The recoil is not bad at all, not much if any worse than any of my 30/06 rifles. For myself I cetainly wouldn't consider it a candidate for a muzzle brake. That's my humble opinion.

    You are the man pulling the lanyard and putting time in at the bench. If you feel the need to moderate the recoil, I certainly wouldn't stand in your way. Just remember those things make a terrible racket!

    Good luck with your project and I hope she turns out to be a real shooter!

    It sounds like a fair price to me, and I think you will be happy with the timney. I don;t know if you need the muzzle break but you are the one shooting it so to each thier own.

    A muzzle break on a .300 WSM?

    Weatherby has been willing to clean up the bad triggers that show up in these rifles. I would contact the factory and see what they tell you before you spend the money. I agree that it is a pity that they let an MOA rifle out with a bum trigger.

    $150 for parts and labor is a good price. The timney is a good after market trigger.

    Use the muzzle break on the range, but don't use it hunting, especially if you're with someone else. Guides hate them. They make your gun deafeningly loud.

    Other than a Canjar trigger on one of my varminters, I have Timney triggers on my Mausers and a Springfield, and they've been value-added. They've served me well. I see the price has gone up a bit, and I shouldn't be surprised (it's been 6-7 years since I purchased the last one), but I believe you'll be pleased. $150 is a good price if it includes installation and adjustment.
