Shows the lack of mental capacity in the world today. Also, shows how many moron newbies are now reloading for the 7mm STW thinking they're gonna get 4000 fps...

Just imagine how many idiots are out there now playing with gunpowder, since all the SHTF stuff has been going on... Scary stuff man.

This is the second Model 70 in my family. The first is a .270 W. C. F. -- at least that's what it was called in 1949. It was my dad's rifle and it's taken more deer than the law allows. Literally!

I went ahead and bought that Weaver Grand Slam scope. If it doesn't work out, I can replace it easily enough, and my mother's .270 Mauser needs a new scope anyway.

Still waiting on paperwork over at the LGS. Getting anxious.

I'm thinking I might just settle on 160-grain bullets for everything. It's too late to get on an elk hunt this year, so I have time to figure out how to load for this rifle. The brass sure seems to dwarf the 7mm Rem Mag, does that mean an incredible amount of recoil?
The recoil is significantly higher than the 7 Rem but totally tolerable especially if you put a decent muzzle brake on.

There are lots of arguments made about not using MB's and none of them trump the value in being able to see your impacts from 100yds on out as far as I'm concerned. The Snowy Mountain Rifles MB is my favorite although I'm fixing to have several Norwest Precision MB's installed on some of my rifles. They are very similarly designed and you can't beat the price of the Northwest Precision LLC brakes.

Actually it is helpful knowing 5/12's of the population has no business reloading and should be considered to dangerous to reproduce.

And each time one of them reaches that 4000fps with a 140gr bullet it just means there will be one less person competing with us to purchase reloading components.

When do you get back from vacation?
