Since it is a 270 STW I was able to find a load with the 165 Matrix that shoots to 1/2" at two hundred yards (over flags), not sure of the speed though. Thanks for the advice

No, my wife is not a black belt. She is a QA Engineer though!!!!

It would look nice with my two other Model 70's, both are Featherweights. One is a pushfed 7mm-08 in a laminated stock and a new FN (US made) stainless 30-06. Then the stainless Ruger No1 in 7mm STW.

Gotta be at or over 3300, what powders have you been using? That is one BadAss 270.

What a way to round out a awesome Winchester collection, not to mention that the Laredo's in that caliber are rare and limited edition. I am telling you, if
I didn't have some irons in some other fires right now, that Laredo would join it's Sharpshooter brethren. ( he might even throw in some brass, if he dosen't, I will) hint hint.

ATTENTION:::, if anybody from " The Brotherhood" buys Butterbeans' rifle, I will throw in two boxes of Federal Premium ammo, loaded with 150 grain Bear Claw bullets. Actually, I think they are Speer Grand Slams. This is my way of helping out a friend, and to keep it in the family. PM me with your address,( after the sale of course ), and I will put them in the mail pronto like!!! Good luck, and enjoy. After all, what are " Brothers" for?

I was using Retumbo Powder that shot well, can't remember the load at the moment but believe it was 78 gr. I'm going to try 79 and 80 to see if they shoot better and take my chrony also. But not sure if I can get any better than 1/2" at 200 yds. I do my load development when we have a Benchrest match, that way I already have flags set up at the range. I stay at the range overnight so I get plenty of time to shoot my hunting rifles and tune them. My last match is the end of September so I will know in a couple of weeks.
