i have been playing around with my vg in 270 wsm alot lately but break in was a pain. accuracy is good from a fresh barrel but as the barrel heats up accuracy is GREATLY effected as opposed to fully broken in. the vangaurd is also a rifle that likes a good tune up which you should have a gunsmith do but if you free float the barrel, bed it, tune up the trigger and run a bit or bore bright every now and then the vanguard can outshoot most remington 700's. if your not a avid gun tinkerer it might not be the gun for you.

well the tikka aint my cup of tea but they do tend to be more accurate in a lighter package. but if your like me and hate plastic parts it might not be what your looking for
