    WINCHESTER Model 70 Classic Featherweight
    .280 Remington (a.k.a. 7mm Express and 7mm-06)

    Burris 3x9x40mm w/Ballistic Plex Reticle
    Weaver mount
    Leupold rings

    This was my late 91-year old Dad's gun. He bought it brand new in 1995 - and only shot it at the bench a few times. I called Winchester, and the serial number shows it was made in 1995. -It has a lightweight but very accurate 22-inch barrel.

    I'm trying to sell it all as a pkg. deal ($875 and FREE S/H).

    :) Model 70 Classic
    In 1992, Winchester began producing a controlled round feed Model 70 that was marketed as the "Classic" model. This version reintroduced the [pre-64] CRF feature, while retaining the "anti-bind" locking lug groove bolt guide of the 1968 push feed model. The use of modern CNC manufacturing techniques allowed Winchester to re-introduce the CRF feature at a competitive price.

    .280 Remington vs .30-06 Springfield
    The .280 Remington is capable of developing energy nearly equal to the .30-06 Springfield, but with lighter bullets having a better ballistic coefficient. Thus, the .280 has a better trajectory and retains more energy downrange. The .30-06 produces more energy than the .280 with bullets heavier than 180 grains, though .284" 175 grain bullets have a high sectional density of .310, compared to the 30-06 180 grain bullet with a moderate sectional density of .271. The .280 is suitable for hunting any game in North America with good shot placement.
    SAAMI pressure limit for the .280 Remington is set at 60,000 PSI, 50,000 CUP.
    Most American rifle and ammunition manufacturers catalogue the .280 Remington.

    .280 Remington vs .270 Winchester
    The .280 Remington is capable of generating slightly higher velocities with a given bullet weight than the .270 Winchester, and also able to use heavier bullets due to the larger .284" diameter. .284" bullets also have higher ballistic coefficients at the top of the weight spectrum than .277" bullets. The greater energy and higher ballistic coefficient of heavier .284" bullets give the .280 Remington a slight ballistic advantage over the .270 Winchester.
