View Full Version : Weatherby Vanguard Varmint Special .223

I have a question for you guys. I am buying a Weatherby Vanguard in .223 in about a month. It has 1 in 12 rifling. Will this stabilize bullets heavier than 55gr.? I would like to shoot some of the heavier loads from Black Hills, but I'm not sure if 1 in 12 rifling will stabilize them.

Sorry but you're out of luck. The 55gr is at the top end for a 1/12. The shoot 45gr very well though.

That's what I thought. Thanks.

It might work with as much as 62/63 grainers as well; but might not.
