    I'm looking around at some of the new varmint rifles, and was wondering what people thought of the CRPF action from Winchester. I have a custom built off of the old push feed, and never had a problem. How does the CRPF measure up?

    It can make an extremely accurate LR rig. Phillip Yott, 1st IBS 1k shooter to get 100 match points last year shoots a mauser and 70 action, so accuracy is there for push feeds. Just not as many aftermarket goodies.

    I recently got a model 70 coyote (crpf action) in .270 WSM. I really like it. So far it shoots about 1/2" with my handloads, i did have the barrel floated and the trigger lightened. Only criticism of the action is the safety isnt as smooth as the classic actions. Its especially stiff going from fire to the middle position.
