I decided to do the right thing and give the 270 to my oldest daughter who elk hunts
with me. I'm going to get the lop cut to her size and she can enjoy the rifle.
I guess lighter aint everything. I slugged around an old 264Win for about 20 yrs, and now am totally happy with this Win Mod 70 7RemMag I bought. Meanwhile I stuck a 4-12x40AO on it this morn, I just like the gun too much to use any other for western big game hunting.
