Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS
I recently bought a Win 70 Extreme Weather in 30-06 Springfield. So far it has been everything I thought it would be. This rifle shines with build quality, the bolt action cycles glass smooth and the trigger breaks very cleanly at 3#, just about where I want a hunting rifle trigger to be at. The barrel measures 22", which is very handy for me. So far, I've loaded approximately 20 rounds of Hornady 150 BTSP's over H-414 powder, Lapua brass, and CCI BR2 primers. I've installed a Zeiss 3x-9x 50mm scope with Warne rings. The Hornady bullets provide a cannelure and I applied a modest roll crimp. All the groups I have fired have been right on 1" or less. The rifle is capable of more accuracy that I can provide with my skills. I'm working on a good load for a 165 grain bullet for hog hunting. I, too, waited for over a year for the Win 70 Super Grade, however, I gave up and took back my prepaid cash. I'm glad that I chose the extreme weather, instead of a "looker", it's a shooter.
This is a premium grade rifle that won't break your checking account. I highly recommend it.
