I have a 721 in .270 as well - it’s a ‘48. Mine wears a vintage Bushnell 4x ScopeChief II CP amd hits lights-out every pre-season sight-in. It was my dad’s deer rifle since the 60s and has many PA and VA white tails to its credit. Nothing fancy, but a time capsule and heirloom treasure for sure.
Oh... that Rem mod 721 is a great little rifle, old school... as is the mod 722, I've had a few over the years and they made great actions for custom builds, and just a fine rifle all the way around, in your case, the Mod 721 in .270 Win is a classic plus it belonged to your father... nice. Also, nice 7mm Rem Mag Deer popper. Cheers.I have a 721 in .270 as well - it’s a ‘48. Mine wears a vintage Bushnell 4x ScopeChief II CP amd hits lights-out every pre-season sight-in.

I've always liked the 6.5 RSAUM I had friends who shot them in LR matches it's a great LR cartridge. I used its big brother .300 RSAUM for RL and it was amazing, but... I think I see the appeal of the 6.5 RSAUM on my end is due to my time shooting Remington 6.5 Rem Mag... to this day an outstanding cartridge. I bought one for the first runs of Remnigntons Model 700s in 6.5 Rem Mag, darn I'm sorry that I sold that rifle amazingly accurate for an out-of-the-box Remmy. Cheers!6.5 saum built by myself, bighorn origin, Mesa stock, 26” proof and 6-24 pst. 8.4lbs ready to hunt. Shoots 1/4 moa with 156 bergers day in and day out.
It’s twin big brother. A 300 win all the same specs. I haven’t worked up a load for it yet but have no doubt it’ll be a shooter as well. 8.5lbs as it sits
