Re: .264 win mag

Someone asked about the revival of the .264 Westerner? Wanted a 26" Barrel?

Ask and ye shall receive.

HOW SWEET !
They dressed it right with the classic stock but removed the iron sights that were on the original. Hope they did away with the original throat specs set up for the double diameter Winchester bullet too . If not you will play hell seating bullets if you try to reload. The original Westerner also had a block on the underside of the barrel that had an adjustable barrel tension screw through the forearm that altered the barrel whip to fine tune accuracy that hopefully went away and they floated the barrel . It worked but was more than most could cope with and many did not know what it was and over tightened it. Guess what happened then ?

I'm using a digital caliper, actually I have 2. The cases were full length resized. Odd, but I'm not bothered by it as it shoots great. Just wondered if anyone else experienced anything similiar.

Saw that one when they first brought it out as is an anniversary edition exclusive to Cabelas . I found it interesting they even put the solid red rubber recoil pad on it but opted to add a monte carlo cheek piece to the stock . Nice upgrade from the early originals.

Re: .264 win mag

Love reading this forum. Thanks to everyone for all of the info. FYI.... Picked up a brand new, made in America Model 70 in 264 Win Mag. A reintroduction of the Westerner. It's a beautiful piece, and shoots as good as it looks. Just finished scoping it and putting it on paper. I'll try to post pics.

Two, three-shot groups....@ 100 yds. Factory ammo. The bottom group was the last one. Good enough... Packed up and headed home with empty, fire-formed brass. Can't wait to work up some hand loads
