Finished the .270 Project

I finished my .270 Project last week. So far, so good. It's gonna be the new Deer gun. Now I gotta get out and shoot it.





Started life this fall as a blued Savage 111 .270 from Cabela's with the gray/black laminated stock. Couple of 'tweaks' done.

-All metal redone in a black CeraKote finish.
-OTM Stockade Sporter stock
-Bedded with Devcon
-Painted with DuraCoat #75 ACU gray green
-Webbed with Krylon webbing spray
-DuraCoat matte clear coat
-Farrell 0 MOA base (black CeraKoted)
-steel trigger guard (black CeraKoted)
-Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42mm with Mil-dot reticle
-Leupold PRW low rings

It'll also get a custom barrel after the factory one's shot out. I've also got a new Savage 111 .300 Win Mag for a Spring project.

    Great job. I just love a good 270. That looks like a good shooter.

    Very nice looking!

    Why the zero MOA base?

    Went with the 0 MOA because the maximum effective range of the .270 Win should be about 750 yds with my 140 gr AccuBond load - while still retaining about 1000 ft/lbs of energy.

    That range requires about 15.00 MOA of elevation (temp/altitude variables) and the Nikon's got 70 MOA of adjustment. The future IOR scope should be similarly capable. Canted base not required.

    Made it left handed cause I'm right-handed but left eye dominant - it's easier to shoot left handed.
