Re: 270 WSM Rifle Advice
I bought a Browning Abolt 270 wsm when they first came out. Not having Brass or dies at the time I bought two boxes of factory ammo. I brought the rifle home mounted a Cabelas guide series 4x14. It was shooting .5moa @ 100. I've since switched to the 5-15 vortex "midway" viper for less weight and size gave better balance on rifle. I can carry it all day up and down mountains of Pa or out west.
My oldest son being a lefty I bought him a south paw Savage s/s long action 270wsm. It's light and shoots lights out as all Savages do. But with the S/S Savage, barrel contour, long action it weighs more and with his 4x14 Cabelas Guide series scope weighs more than my 270wsm. Both are very still reasonable in weight though.
Of the two factory rifles If you don't plan on changing stocks, triggers or barrels I'd go Browning. If ya think you might want to change barrel, stock or caliber in future go with the Savage. Or if your lefty.
The Tikka is also a well made factory rifle as mentioned.
