    I'm shooting a 270 WSM in a 12fvss and love it :D I swapped out the stock and that really helped. I really like the low profile stock, my buddy shoots one in a 22-250 and it is a tack driver and it has never been bedded or anything. He's wanting a 300WSM in the low profile to go with his 22-250.
    Good luck gun)

    I looked at a Burris XTR 6-24x50 and fondled it and was really impressed with the glass and the covered turrets, the target turrets were really tactile and positive.
    Like you said, gotta save some coin.
    If you hang around here to long that 3-9 won't last long.gun)

    I have a 300wsm in a mod.11 savage and with a cold barrel for each shot it groups very well. It has the skinny barrel so it heats up fast and groups do suffer. Will most likely re-barrel and bed it this winter, but my model 12 fv in 22-250 is a tack driver, 1 inch at 400 yds. 3 shots.
