Weatherby's Hush Edition hunting rifle series was introduced back in 2018. Already available in 257 Wby. Mag., 300 .Wby. Mag., 6.5 Creedmoor and 6-5-300 Wby. Mag., now the appreciated American gun manufacturer adds a further caliber option to the series with the 7mm Rem. Mag.
The Vanguard Hush Edition was born from a collaboration between Weatherby and Hush, a brand created to raise awareness about hunting/fishing access and conservation initiatives. According to the manufacturer, these “sleek, lightweight, and incredibly accurate” rifles brings “years of experience together”. All Vanguard rifles are in fact guaranteed to shoot a 3-shot group of .99” or less at 100 yards (sub-MOA) from a cold barrel when used with Weatherby factory or premium ammunition within two-years of verified purchase date to original purchaser.
