well i've about decided this is what i want. i really wish that remington made one in a sendaro. guess i'll have to settle on an ss sps. if i can't get less than moa outta the box i don't even want o mess with it. if it shoots moa than i can get it to shoot less. savages shoot better, but i like the remingtons looks better. people that own or shot please let me know how well. Also how much more muzzle jump over a stock .270.
i wouldn't mind seeing some pics, but would rather buy someting thats made in the usa. otherwise Sako or tikka would be on my list and the only foreign rifle i'd buy. along w/ beretta i guess since they own tikka. i don't like the stock on the tikkas tho. i like the looks of weatherbys and howas, but they are made in japan. the vaguards are anyways.
I don't want to start a political debate, but i believe that is why other countrys economys seem to be doing better than ever while ours is going south.
yes, this is vey true. some gunsmithing will definatly be in order if gun does not shoot better than moa after a bedding, breaking in, and a trigger job. why spend $1000 on a rifle up front when you can buy one for $500 play around with it for a little while, slap a barrel on it and end up with a way better rifle for the same moneys.
i've heard mixed things from the newer remingtons. some say 1/2" others 1-1/2". alot of it it is jst the people i'm sure, but i know i wasn't too pleased with the last one i bought, but then again i havn't messed with it either.
I got a Savage 12 FVSS in December in 270 WSM, 26in heavy barrel, 10 lbs with scope. I see that they dropped the 270 WSM but one might find one in inventory.
The one thing that the Savage short action has is that the magazine is longer, I can load out to a COAL of 2.990 and still cycle through mag. they are on the lands before that but for longer bullets there is room.
I'm pushing a 140 grain Acccubond or SST 3341 fps with 71gr Rutumbo. I still have some tinkering to do but I've shot a couple loads under 1/2 in.
Recoil is minimal, it's the same as the 270, a couple guys I shoot with think it's less than there 270s.
I know a guy that has 2 tikka's in 270 WSM and he has gotten to the point where they are his go to gun and he has many other options.
