Why doesn\'t Winchester...

Chamber the Stealth II in the WSM's? Is it a super-short action? They chamber the .308 in it, and there's only a .05" difference in COAL (2.810 for the .308 vs 2.860 for WSM) I for one would much rather have a .270 WSM in a stealth configuration with a 26" tube. The only other rifle that is similar would be the coyote, and it only has a 24". I don't see much reason for the WSSM's to start with, and I would say the .308 is the most useful in this lineup.

p.s. Why did Winchester kill the Laredo? Same for the Remington Sendero...just wasn't a seller?

What do you mean the Sendero is coming back? Do you have the link to the article that states that?

Thanks,
