Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group
My 270 AM has about 230 rounds through it. Most of them were used to learn how to reload for the cartridge. I've never paid any attention to COL and setting back shoulders before. Also I spent quite a few rounds shooting at long range before I was really ready to.

My largest adjustment was/is to the fact that the rifle is accurate enough that I can notice atmospheric changes ("Hg, Hum, etc.) from range session to range session.
I went with the single shot for the following reasons.
- ADL stocks are supposedly a bit more stiff than BDL stocks.
- The glued in aluminum block is bound to stiffen the action at least a little bit.
- Not handicapped by magazine length and 'potential' feeding issues.
- Never bothered with flattened bullet tips.
- I like the idea of a single shot. If your prepared a second shot, if necessary, it isn't that far behind the first. If you have a spotter with you then reloading begins immediately upon firing the first shot as they can call the shot for you. At times I don't have a spotter, thus my expectation of seeing ALL of my own hits
- Oh yeah, I almost forgot. It was less expensive as the 721 bottom metal is not nice and I gave my BDL bottom metal to some fella in Slidell, LA. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
