Re: Winchester model 70 trigger prob. WTH is going on?
+1 shootinfool I hear you. I'm going to go ahead and have the work done by Krieger like I posted and when I get it back, in 5 to 6 months, i'll have a Jewel or Timney trigger installed. One malfunction like you said "on a whim" is enough for me to lose faith in it. If I don't have anything done to it I'll always be paranoid it will do it again. I wish I could say I found and fixed something on it but that is not the case. Bad experience all around.
I had to think long and hard about rebarrelling to 308 for a F/TR rifle. I have to say the rifle has always shot well. In the .4's @ 100yds, 5 shot group, with moly coated 55gr V-maxes and varget @ 3500fps. Not even a warm load in 22-250. If someone wants a really good Winchester Heavy Varmint barrel in 22-250 with only around 300 medium handloads down it, this would be a good one. It will be 6 months wait, but its a perfectly good factory barrel and will need a home. I will keep it if nobody wants it. Its too good a barrel to just junk.
