I have a Model 70 .270 classic stainless that I would like to set it up for a dual purpose mid to long range hunter. I don't have a lot of money so it will be a budget build. Here is my definition of mid to long range- something I can take in the brush at low power and easily scope deer, but be able to open shoot out to 5-600 yds accurately with a lot of practice. Right now I am uncomfortable with the accuracy that I can get from it at over 400 yds. Here is what I have so far and what I am thinking/ wanting; 1. The gun is stock, except for a 3 lb trigger pull adjustment. Original plastic stock. 2. Keep it as light as possible. 3. Scope- currently have a Leupold 3x9x40 on it. Thinking 4-12x44 Vortex or similar in Zeiss. Or should I be looking at the 50mm objective scopes? 4. Stock- Looking at a Manners or McMillan. HS doesn't make one for the Model 70 and I don't like the feel of the B&C. Want to go light. 5. Trigger- Quite a few people say that trigger pull is a personal preference, but would I be better off with a lighter pull? Get an adjustable trigger?
