Re: .264 win mag

Bought a Rem. cdl when they come out in 07, what a dream to shoot. Shootn 120 nosler BT around 3300. I might be able to get a little more out of it, have not messed with it, shoots really good with that load.

Re: .264 win mag

The 264 win mag was my father's rifle of choice and when I turned 13 he gave his to me. Since then it has become my favorite caliber. Now I have three 264 Win Mags. A mint pre-64 model 70, a later post 64 model 70 win, and my newest is a custom I built three years ago. I built it on a Win 70 post 64 action. I trued the action, installed a 28" shilen barrel, and a hogue stock with the aluminum bedding block. My best load is with H1000 and Hornady SST's. It seems to shoot the 140gr and 129gr equally well. It also likes the Berger VLD's as well. The 28" barrel will launch the 140's right at 3400 fps, and shoot's in the .4's at 100yds. On deer and feral hogs it has been devastating.

Re: .264 win mag

I also was passed down a .264 from my uncle. A factory Rem 700 with a 4 digit serial number so it is old. I killed all of my firsts with it except my first elk (it fell to a .300 wby) and it does the job on everything in North America very well, maybe with the exception of the larger bears and I'm sure it could kill those too. I have taken several moose and who knows how many deer with it.
Once you have owned one for a while you will never be without one. They really do make a guy have a real soft spot for them.
Life is short... Lets go kill something
