Product Description

I am a huntress who loves everything about the pursuit and will never surrender my femininity. It's how I was made – with a form designed by women, for women. My graceful lines are befitting of the way I fit female shooters – with a shortened 13" length of pull, slender forearm, a slimmer grip with a gentle palm swell, and a higher comb for optimal scope-eye alignment. Even my recoil pad is special with an ergonomic cant to nest into the way a woman's shoulder is built. I am a huntress, and my time has come.

I do not own one but have the pleasure of shooting the 6.5 Creedmore every year at Ladies Hunting Camp in Oregon. Each year I challenge this rifle more and more in its performance, and every year I am impressed. Sporting a Leupold VX3 scope, this rifle quickly moves from target to target with reloading speed and ease. It is well balanced in weight allowing for accurate shooting off hand, prone, bench or with sticks. Shorter stock makes this a great option for us women hunters. Highly recommend.

We purchased the Camilla 2 ½ years ago and we were instantly in love! The wood grain is beautiful and the rifle itself shoots accurately! I am a bit smaller than other people are ( I’m 4’11”) and this rifle works well even for me. It is chambered in 7mm-08 and I recently took down my first elk with this rifle in one shot. The trigger is nice at a wonderful midpoint and I don’t feel like my rifle moves too much when I pull the trigger. The bolt works smoothly and I have not had a jam or misfire with this rifle. Overall I would recommend this rifle to anyone interested in taking down big game with a rifle that still has manageable recoil. I also have the accubrake installed and that makes it feel like a little bit heavier than a 5.56. I love this rifle and I can’t wait to use it more in the future!!

I have two confessions and two truths.

Confession 1 – I love guns and have a lot of hunting rifles for each unique situation. Confession 2 – I often buy guns first and then do research AFTER I buy them. Yes, I realize that’s backwards but it’s my flaw

Truth – I bought my Vanguard Camilla because it “came up” To my shoulder and provided an undefinable comfort which is what I look for first in my hunting rifles. Lastly, I am a MAN and did not realize this is a gun that was designed for women.

Truth 2 – I went hunting this weekend for wild pig and the gun performed without flaw and far better than guns over $3k that I currently own. Frankly, this is the best hunting rifle I have ever shot. Recommended for both women and men in my humble opinion.

I bought my wife one of these before our trip to South Africa Last May. She also shoots a Weatherby Mark V in .257 WM and Sako 7mm Rem Mag. but she wanted something lighter and better fit. She shouldered one at Dury’s Guns here in San Antonio and matter of factly pronounced she would take that one to Africa in Cal 7mm-08. So I bought it, mounted a Viper Vortex 4-16 X 44 HS-T scope and left the store–worked up a load using 145 gr Barnes LRX and got the custom turrets for it. In Africa she went 3 for three one shot kills on plains game and now it’s the only rig she uses. She really, really wants a sub alpine but they don’t chamber in 7mm-08. Wby, what are you thinkin? No 7mm-08 in Wby Sub Alpine is like no butter for your toast.

This is a nice rifle shoots well. This is my most expensive rifle I own wish I went with the “riflemans rifle” for one reason this rifle has a plastic floor plate between mounting a nice scope and buying the rifle I had 1000 into it and it has a plastic floor plate. Other than that shoots nice nice action but a plastic floor plate should have never been installed in a 800 dollar rifle

I won this at a Friends of the NRA banquet and it is not a miniaturized rifle, I look at it as a carbine that fires 7mm 08 rifle ammunition. It’s light, handy and hits under MOA easily past 100 yards. My wife isn’t a hunter, but we both take it to the range and she can out shoot me with it; part of that is the build dimensions of the rifle, and the other part is the moderate recoil and muzzle blast. It has a special set of adornments in the NRA serial number and an engraved magazine floorplate with the NRA seal in gold inlay that compliments the style and graceful lines of the walnut stock. Guys, don’t be afraid to share this one with her – if you do you will be missing the mark on what could be the most accurate center-fire rifle you ever fired. I think this is an underrated rifle and well worth considering even if you are a guy. It does not scream GIRLS ONLY, but it was designed to please the female shooter – and it does everything a fine centerfire rifle in this caliber class is supposed to do right and nothing it isn’t supposed to do.

Win one or buy one, you are a winner either way.

Bought this rifle 18 months ago in .308 Winchester because I liked the look of it and the calibre. Put about two hundred rounds through it to date. Best 3 shot group measures less than .3″ with 155 grain match bullets. Great wood on the stock as well. This rifle shoots on par with my old MkV.

I ordered this pretty little gun for my wife 2 years ago, just last week we finally dug it out of the safe and broke it in. It fits her perfectly, she love the fit and feel of it and the weight! and it shoots amazing, she shot a .5″ group with set of handloads i built for it! Thanks again Weatherby!
