I believe that would be a 270 "M"ashburn. or the 265/270 Mashburn Super Magnum.

Here's a start: Wolfe Publishing Company

Around my place I'd screw it on an action and stick 'er in a stock, duct tape it to and old tire, point it to the mountains, load up a corn meal round and set 'er off with a long piece of cord while hiding behind a large tree, with the video camera running.

I may even do a casting to ensure I don't end up w/a no shoulder case.

You're on your own on this one.:confused:

Looks like a 270-300win Ackley.

It's based on a belted case. Has a magnum sized case head. Lastly it is roughly the same length as the 300win.

roy i took your advice on this one. after i did a chamber cast. it was indeed a 270-300 ultra or allen mag as we call them around these here parts. looks like i got me a free 270 allen mag barrel thats never been shot. not sure if the washburn was just something the customer just came up with or what. huntinfool18
