Saw that one in a magazine! It looks good and it will come out in the 300 Win.....You might want to write S&W and tell them ahead of time to scrap any plans of chambering the 270 in the I-bolt!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i already did, so they said the 300 and the 7mm mags would be following the 25-06 .270 and 30-06, i wouldnt mind trying one in a 7mm, t/c is building the barrels for the i-bolt so you know its gonna shoot well, there test rifle was one of the most accurate off the shelf rifles wayne van zwoll said he has ever shot, so yeah its a neat rifle they stole the weatherby stock a little but i like that look.

yes sir, when the test i read was being conducted the rifle was still a proto-type and they had some issues with the camo finish peeling of the sling swivels and the firing pin needed two more pounds so they fixed that, so i wanna shoulder one and see how she feels.

Its a very good looking rifle. I like the camo and the inlets where the sling mounts are!

I don't know, those inlets would be awful rough on a truck window!

My vanguard shot good, but I hated toting it around.... it was too dang heavy!!!

 

Personally I dont think I would buy one

Thats why I converted to a compact after owning a Vanguard for many years. The Vanguards are heavy!
