I have had one and it was a shooter. Wish I still had it. Contact Winmag he is a Winchester conaseur.

I got several, and I'm happy with how they shoot. Had Chris Matthews rebarrel a couple, after the barrel was shot out.

I own two Model 70's one in 300WSM, one in 270WSM and I am very happy with both of them. They both are very accurate for factory guns.

My Mod 70 was originally chambered in 270 WSM it might of had a crooked bbl and was straightened out at factory. It was ok for 3 shots then threw the rest. Had it re-barreled to 7mm WSM with a Brux cut rifled bbl.Gun smith didn't free float the for arm. First time shoot accuracy was fair,I floated forearm and it shot better. then learned of a proper sequence in tightening the tang screws. Did that and now I have a shooter.At first I was quite frustrated .

Re: How many happy with their Win Mod 70s

My favorite rifle is based on model 70 heavy varmint before I shot the barrel out. The pictures below where shot from that rifle @ 100 yards. Its been trued with a Krieger. I have another rifle being built right now that will also be based on a model 70 LA. I really like how simple of an action it is, only a handful of working parts compared to some of the new actions out there.

I currently own a Win 70 HVB in .243 and am very pleased with it. It consistently shoots 1/4" groups, and smaller, at 100yds and sub 1/2 MOA out to 500yds. Awesome little rifle. JohnnyK.
