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.

Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS

I own Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather in 30 06 with 22 inch, fluted barell. I put on it Sightron Big Blue Sky scope 4x10x50 and took it to a range for a test. I shot with Hornady, Remington, Winchester and Federal ammo. At 100 yards, shooting from Coldwell rest bench, I was able to get 1.1 inch grouping using Federal PowerShock 150 grain ammo. Remington CoreLock 180 grain ammo grouped at 1.3 inch at 100 yards. Although there are bolt action rifles that are more accurate than M70, Weatherby Sub-Moa being one of them, Model 70 is more dependable while hunting dangerous game. You don't want to take any chances when hunting a bear, a wounded buck or Russian boars. Anyway I highly recommned this rifle. It is very light, fits great, and it has a nice trigger. It is balanced and is well made.....I was considering Remington 700 but I was glad I went with Winchester instead.
