Re: 25x270 WSM

I have one built by Hart on a Howa action. 25" fluted #4 stainless barrel. I shoot 110 accubonds @ ~3450fps. I have Redding dies and case forming is simple. RL22, MagPro, and IMR7828 all shoot pretty well. MagPro with CCI BR-2 primers gives me .25MOA if I do my part.

Re: 25x270 WSM

I have a Friend who has one, He lives in PA and he built his before the .270 WSM Ever showed up. He calls his a .25-.300 WSM. I know he likes it alot, and it's built off of a Remington 700 Action.

What kind of info are you looking for?? I can shoot him an E-mail and ask him a few questions if you like....

Information such as any problems or some little thing he would of done different. My plans are to buy an actual short mag and strip it so i know it will feed okey and of course have the mag. bolt face. I have heard they did something little different to these action than standard actions as feeding goes. Loads also, im a 25 fan with 2 whby's one a custon rem Bp action, hart, Mcmillan, smithed by Clarence hammonds. The other one is 700 rem 25-06 opened up to whby. Also played with 250 AI. I like 100 gr. sierra or NBt i will be shooting . Hoping to pretty well get whby. velocity. I get 3700 fps out of my custom with 100 gr. siera fb. I dont see the need for anything larger bullet wise even for long range shooting. I know what the 100 grain will do. Im thinking that little short fat case of 270 wsm filled with ball powder will push that 25 cal. like a ******** super sonic missle. Guess im little excited!
Any help, comments, advise would be appreciated.
Mike

Re: 25x270 WSM

Mike,

I think his is a long action, I'll find out for sure. I have a Dummy round that he sent me and You're right. It's sure a hot rod. I think it's quite sexy as well.

I've Shot him an E-Mail with your questions. I'll see what he says and get back to you. I'll be out of town for a few days I'll be able to check my E-mail on Friday, hopefully he will have gotten back to me by then.

Later,

Dan

Re: 25x270 WSM

The bolt face and feed rails are the issue if you build on any action that was not originally a WSM. If you have a WSM action, there are no issues.
