Hopefully we'll be shooting it next week.
Dropped my son off at hockey and stopped in a local gun shop to kill some time. Walked out with a 1910 Savage 99 in 303 Savage and a box of 20 rounds. It was so pretty, I just couldn't help myself. We'll be shooting this one over the weekend.

Garry, awesome score on that Savage! Those are such a cool rifle. I'm still looking forward to getting my first! Grandpa hunted with a 300 Savage forever.

What are you going to scope the EW with? Scotty

I'm still looking but right now it looks like I'm going to put a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 Rapid-Z 800 on it

Re: Winchester model 70 Extreme Weather

Picked up the rifle yesterday from a small dealer near us, Legacy Firearms. Based on the prices I've seen online I think I got a great deal and it took him less than a week to get the gun. Most online places were oos. I really like supporting local dealers and Ron was terrific to deal with.

My son flipped when he say the rifle, he's going to be very happy with it. I have on order the HD rail and rings from Evolution Gun Works. I saw mixed reviews but there were enough positive that I thought I would give them a try. They also help making sure I got the combination that would work with the rifle and the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x50 that is going on it.

Getting close to the first round, we're going to start with Federal Vital-Shok Nosler AccuBond 160

Re: Winchester model 70 Extreme Weather

Garry, that is just about the same set up I will go with on my 300WSM. I will use the EGW rail, PRW rings and probably a 3x15 Minox. Overall, I think it will be a great combo. Looking forward to hearing how your shoots. I haven't heard too many complaints from the EW's at all. The new triggers are AWESOME. Scotty
