Weatherby has introduced a new version of their Vanguard rifle called HUSH. It is one of their Custom Shop rifles. The rifle is inspired by the hunting YouTube channel called Hushin. Here is how this rifle describes itself on the company’s website:
Planning your next Public Land hunt? I’m the rifle you will want by your side. You can trust my rugged dependability and supreme accuracy when the animal of your dreams fills the scope.
Hushin is more than a brand, it’s genuinely a lifestyle. Conservation, public land access, inspiring new hunters and giving back – these are all the things HUSH stands for. With my popular 300 Weatherby Magnum chambering, custom HUSH floorplate and Tungsten Cerakote finish for exceptional weather and corrosion resistance I’m the ultimate rifle for your next adventure living the HUSH life.
As the rifle said, it is chambered in the .300 Weatherby Magnum with 1:10 twist rate. The company guarantees a sub MOA accuracy of 3-shot groups at 100 yards with the use of Weatherby factory or premium ammunition. The Monte Carlo style stock is injection molded with a matte finish and has a beautiful spider web pattern. The rifle comes with a cold hammer forged barrel of 24″ length. The overall barrel length with an Accubrake muzzle brake installed is 26″. The overall length of the rifle is 46 1/2″ and its empty weight is 7 1/2 lbs. The rifle also features an adjustable two-stage trigger, 3-position safety and hinged floorplate. The magazine capacity is three rounds. The bolt has a one-piece machined bolt body and fully enclosed bolt sleeve.
You can watch the Weatherby Vanguard HUSH rifle in action in one of the episodes of the mentioned Hushin YouTube channel.
The Weatherby Vanguard HUSH rifle is available for order on Weatherby’s website at an MSRP of $999. The lead time for this rifle is three months.
