I've used this rifle previously for ridge to ridge hog hunting 800yd and in. I've been shooting 165gr matrix over rl26 with excellent results( consistent under 3/4 moa) However I cant get the bullets now. Maybe I'll just go to a faster twist barrel.I kinda wonder the same, I’d leave it as-is, maybe adjust handloads if a reloader. For the average TN deer hunting, I’d go with a smaller round, lighter gun, but that’s me.
I know for some, deer hunting is sitting in a shooting box, covering a wide area. For that type, a heavier setup is just fine. For my style, a compact 20” gun is a favorite.
I just got a 270WSM together with a 7.5 twist have 400 175gr Sierra GKT hopping it does well the BC is pretty high on it should work pretty **** good at long rangeAlright guys. So I got a m70 win coyote .270wsm. I want to have it rebarreled. Who can I send it to? What cartridge, twist etc should I go with?
Buddy your 270 WSM is a good cartridge. Out performs a lot of the newest developed cartridges in that class with more speed and energy.Alright guys. So I got a m70 win coyote .270wsm. I want to have it rebarreled. Who can I send it to? What cartridge, twist etc should I go with?
Pretty sure the WSM will out-perform the 6.8 Westerner. Maybe not for efficiency. IMHO I'd stick with the WSM for hunting. (opinion)What's wrong with what you have???? Does it shoot the 150 Grn bullets well?? Does it shoot the 170's well?? I agree with the guy who said, maybe a faster twist. Might want to look at the 6.8 Westerner from Winchester and compare it to 270 Win Short Mag.
