Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Not sure weather the question is directed at me... in the article pics you will see that the rifle is scoped with a Leupold Mk 4 with M1 turrets and TMR reticle. It's a 4.5-14x50....

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

I have been slowly extending the reach of my Benchmark built 270. Used it in the Findlay 3 gun and made hits at 1250, 700 and 600. No joy at a mile (yet) but it has the potential. I have a Nightforce 3.5-15x50 F1 on a 20 moa base and it has enough dial left (22 mils) when zero'd at 200 yards to go to a mile without adding the reticle
Scope It, DOPE it, Click it, Smoke It!!

I have a Remington .270 WSM I would like to take it into a gunsmith to have the conversion to the removable mag clip? I called a few local gun smiths on doing this conversion and they all said for the parts alone would be $625-650 plus $200 for the install. One gunsmith told me to call the Remington to get the kit and they would do the install for $150 due to the fact its coming from the manufacture parts store and not an after market part. I have called Remington they told me that they do not make a 270 WSM with a removable mag clip! But yet I have gone into sportsman warehouse, cabal's, bass pro-shop and have looked at the Remington 270 WSM with a removable mag clip along with savage, and browning rifles. Can anyone help me find the webpage I can order or Ill just buy a new set up with a removable mag clip?

Re: 270 Win For Long Range Shooting

Yes I have looked into the 300 WSM as well as a 7mm WSM. But for deer hunting I think they are over kill. And yes now I'm thinking of getting one of the rifles listed above do to the fact aftermarket parts are more widely available. Thank you
