270 Gun Choice (Brand)
I have a number of different caliber rifles - I use primarily a .308 and .300 Win Mag for hunting and 1,000 yard shooting. Also have 223s, 7.62 by 39, etc. I do not have a .270, but have been impressed by the ballistics using 130 gr rounds - so I would like to get a .270 bolt action.
I would like a 24 inch barrel for velocity reasons - I had narrowed it to Model 70s, a Remington CDL SF. Browning A or X bolt (especially the Stainless Stalker), and possible a Ruger. My rifles are either Remington (Senderos and a R5 Milspec) or one Savage plus DPMSs. It appears the Brownings and the Ruger have only 22 inch barrel in .270. So they are out if my information is correct on barrel length.
Any thoughts on the Model 70s with a 24 inch barrel, or the CDL??? The CDL would be my first wood stocked rifle if I go that way. Sometime in December I will be buying myself a Xmas present.....I suppose there are Weatherbys and Tikkas to look at too
