Re: Help me build a .270 WSM
Welcome aboard. Its a fun place to be.
Why are ya hung upon a 'synthetic' stock?
You mention you want to "build" but don't mention action/barrel/scope etc or for hunting what kinds of stuff.
The 270 WSM will handle all kinds of game and if loaded to it's capabilities will reach out and touch some things.
Do some googling on synthetic thumbhole stocks and you'll quickly see what your options are and the costs.
I'd suggest purchasing a factory rifle with at least a 26" barrel, but a 24" will do, but I think 24" is a "settle for" option.
I also suppose I'd take a look at a Savage first then snoop around the Remingtons. By then you'll notice the price difference.
Also, don't forget to shop the "used" rack.
Let us know what you decide upon.
