Re: Who's stretching it out with a 270 WSM?
If you are into 270's, I have something you may be interested in. I have a new 270 weatherby mag that was built to shoot long range. I have had it for a year now, and haven't mounted a scope on it. (While I was waiting for my 270 to be built, I purchased a 7mm rum and decided to make it my long range rifle.)I shot it 4 times thru a chrono to see what speeds I was getting and that's all it's been shot. It has a blued shillen #6 fluted barrel with a muzzle break on a vanguard action and a A2 field tactical stock by mcmillian. I am only selling this because I need money to purchase a 375 chey tac from a guy I work with. I don't know all the gunsmithing details, but can get them or give you his number. He said 1800 would be the least he would take for it, but I am looking for an offer. I can send pictures by cell phone if you would like to see any.
I shot a 130 grain barnes at 3590 fps. Granted, the barnes would not be my choice for longrange. But a smoker anyway.
