It isn't going to be a featherweight, but should come in under 8.5lbs ready to hunt with a Leupold CDS 4.5-14x40mm in Talley rings.
I got a box of the LR accubonds on the shelf waiting for the rifle to arrive. After I get it zeroed and the barrel broke in I'm hoping to find a good load with them. I hope to have time to get the set-up ready and get a turret back before a late October elk hunt. If not I'll be packing the trusty 264WM, but it's 2lbs heavier.
Anyone tried these bullets yet?
Gonna give em a whirl tomorrow. Model-70, 270WSM
Got 27 rounds (9 groups of 3) loaded for load work up with RL-22, plus foulers. We'll soon see if they like this combo or not. .015, & .020 off the lands.
Expecting 3000-3100 ish with a 24" barrel @ 88*F & 3800' ASL, depending on where the rifle tells me to stop.
