Re: Winchester's .270 WSM Is My Next Rifle Caliber

i own a Tikka t3 in .270wsm. at 100 yrds with Hordnany Superformance 140gr, it shoot 1/2 min. i hand load 140gr nos ballistic tips in Win brass,fed 215 mag primers, and 61gr of RL19. With that load, I get .434 at 100 and 4" at 400. this is a factory gun, thin barrel. speed is 3080fps. Recoil is no worse than my Savage 110 in .270win.. I am getting it re-barreled with a heavier fluted barrel, and will be getting some Matrix 165gr .277 bullets. will work up a load for them and with their BC of over .7**, should be a shooter at 1000, just to see if I can. One of the very few things about living here in Pa. We have a few 1000 yrd ranges..

FYI, I love the .270wsm. have taken deer and whistle pigs at over 300 and all have dropped where they stood.

My 270WSM is a Rem model 7 with a laminated stock,goes about 7.25 lbs with a Leupold 4-12 on it.Seems like it doesn't recoil at all, about like one of my 257 Roberts.
My 270 is a Remington 721 with a Bausch& Lomb 2.5-8 power.Weighs right at 7.5lbs.Recoil about the same as 270WSM.
They all shoot sub moa at150 yds.ME LIKE IT

Thanks for the info on the 300WM recoil upgrade. My 55-65'ish friend loves his (recoil not a problem before), but does mention there's bruising involved now when shooting 25-30 rds. or more. Thinking we might appreciate that advice... I'm looking to help him out with something. He just fixed the AC on my truck and said "$100" for the work, plus parts when I asked him how much. BTW, it wasn't even that kind of conversation. It just evolved into that. The job was a concerto. It was a PITA. The man deserves more. Looking to help out his Christmas stocking with somethin'. Budget $50-100. Gun is a Savage. Thanks for any tips.
