Re: 6.5 wsm Tell me about it.
Can someone direct me to some info on the 270/7mm WSM.
Over at shortmag.org they really love the 270wsm.Many of them get great accuracy from it w/the 140 accubond and many other bullets for that matter.
The A-Max was one of the bullets i really wanted to give a whirl ,one of the regular posters showed some groups on a gong w/the 7mm wsm 162gr a-max.That post got my wheels turning on the wsm.
Anyway from the reading i've did at -shortmag the 6.5 seems to be a great cartridge.It appears that neck turning the brass is important ,maybe thats more bench rest oriented opinions i'm not sure.
I've been handloading for about one year and have learned alot so maybe i'll stick w/a more conventional cartridge as my learning curve goes up.
As the bullets get heavier so does the recoil so the 270wsm might be for me because like i stated it will be for coyotes/chucks at longrange.
If i want to shoot a heavier bullet there are wildcats,tsx,partitions that would be good for up to elk size game animals.
I am looking at a savage fvss heavy barreled rifle in 270 wsm,i've read a lot of good things about the savages and they are american made.
I have been a remington shooter since the 70's but i'm thinking i'll give the fvss a whirl.I have really got into tinkering w/my own guns of late and there is no better platform than the savage.
Your opinions have helped me to pretty much decide so i'll post what i get when i get it.
I remember someone built a 270AM on a savage action i think,so i figure it must be 'pretty good' anyway.
I looked at the money and time involved in a custom and can't swing it right now.
Well thanks again Mike
