Once again thank you all for your replies. I find myself with a whole lot of options and knowledge I didn't have when I first posted this thread
So a LA on a WSM is available? That just might be the an option I will look into when the time comes. So I decided to take this Remington 700 SPS to my gunsmith and had Leupold scope mounts and rings installed and a scope bore sighted... I took the rifle out to the range and I left the place with mixed feelings!
First off it was great shooting this thing! My only complain is the awful recoil my right shoulder felt. Now I know 270 is not by any means the meanest caliber in the block; but understand I am a disabled war vet here... After three shoulder surgeries (one left two right) I suppose my body is not the same....
Anywho; I just know I can shoot better than what the paper down range was telling! Before I spend more time and money on this rifle (and caliber) I think I should get my hands on lower power rifle and practice practice practice. [by the way I was a shooting a BSA scope which I understand to be a big no-no, will be getting a Bushnell Elite 4200 to temporarily fill in for a better glass in the future]
What caliber would you believe has more to offer; .243 Winchester or .22-250 Remington?
Meaning which would allow for more room for experimentation. I notice there are a lot more bullet brands for the .243, but Berger alone has bullets from 30 to 90 grains in .224
I won't be giving up on this 270WSM or the build; but I'll be honest shooting this thing hurts, feels like a small cannon. At least for now it does LOL.... I have hope my shoulders should be better in a few years - I only got one body and I am not about to give up on it!
Thank you friends for yah great help!
