I have all of the HBV's except the 222 and i have 2 each of the 243 & 308. The 222 is going to be a hard one to find. The 243& 308 are my favorite. The 308 is what got me into 1000 yd. shooting. As far as i am concerned , for out of the box they are unbeatable.

Re: Winchester mdl 70 Stealth

I have just purchased a new winchester 70 stealth and the finish is excellant. I mounted a vortex 4-12x40 pa-v plex scope on a egw 2 moa pictinny rail. You
need the wsm base for the stealth.
The only shooting I've done since leaving the service 55 years ago is a little
with a 223 AR and my Shiloh Sharps 40/65.
It was in the 50's yesteday with gusting winds up to 35 miles an hour. I only fired 10 shots and was using Hornady 168 grain BTHP.Set up targets at 25 yds
and 100 yds. Scope was 4 power and I fired 3 shots at 25 yds and had a one hole cloverleaf. Adjusted sight and shot again moving to the bottom of black.
Adjusted sight again and fired 6 shots at 100 yds. Vertically group was .468.
Horzontally it was 1.406. 4 shots were in one hole .281x.468. Counting the
shot to the right 5 shot group was .468x.875. I blame myself and the wind for the shots right and left. The trigger is crisp with no takeup. When broken in
should be half inch or better moa. Hoping to get out again this week.

Re: Winchester mdl 70 Stealth

I have a Win M70 Shadow in 7mm RM that I am putting back together. In the old form I had it (factory), it would shoot .75-1.5" with most factory ammo. Under the old company (Win vs FN) the Shadow was a low budget gun but has worked well for me. I am refinishing a new stock to free float the barrel and properly bedding the action. I have also adjusted the trigger to a nice point, and put a muzzle brake on it. I am also working some reloads already for it and hope to have it together by Jan-Feb as it will be my antelope gun this coming year.
