    Well I'm thinking about rebarreling my Tikka T3 light from 270 Win to 243. I have a Sako A7 in 270 Win so I don't need two. I might consider selling it if you decide to go with that caliber. I love the 270. I have hand loads developed for it that shoot lights out. Also, two mags. 270 130 53 4350 189.jpg

    It’s been about 10 years since I’ve had that 270 WSM. It was an A Bolt II Composite Stalker, with a limbsaver recoil pad. I can recall, and recall telling others, that the recoil on it was mild shooting the 130s and 150s alike. I also recall it feeling more like a push than a punch. I’d say it’s comparable to the -06. I never shot those two calibers side by side though. Since you mentioned it, I have no idea what you can do for reduced loads in the WSM (if at all).
