Hello all I just bought my very first Winchester I have never owned Winchester firearms this I thought was a good deal was a few hundred under 1000 its a mint condition extreme weather 270 wsm with 5 boxes of ammo 3 are the new copper line and 2 power point and a little bushnell scope I’ll upgrade what kind of accuracy can I expect from the gun they use Bell and Carson stock I’m new to the 3 position safety and bolt but I can get use to it

That’s not a Bell & Carlson stock, that is an injection moulded stock.
I had one of these in 338WM, the fit on the barrel to shoulder was way off, but it shot quite well, under MoA.
I would expect it to keep most ammo to MoA or slightly better.

Cheers.

Got 2 Extremes, a Coyote Light in your cartridge(running 140ABs 1/2 MOA), and 3 New Haven Classics. I load my own and the 2 Extremes are my go to's. Can't really give you good feedback since I've rebarreled both a little heavier contours and faster twist. 264WM and 6.5PRC. I don't think you can go wrong w/ New Haven or Baco CRFs.

I love my Winchester 270 wsm . Shoots very well and kills exceptionally well out as far as I want to anyhow . Mine really likes 130 gr Hornady sst . That bullet is devastating on everything I’ve shot thus far

10-4 i had a Remington 700 279 wsm and bought a bunch of diferente factory ammo so I have to try out since I gave the gun to my dad for his birthday so I had a little itch to get another but this one came up and I thought I got a good price since everything is sky high now days

My son’s friend has one. It shot a bit over 1” @ 100 yds. He bought a Boyd’s stock which I bedded, a better scope, Talley rings and it now is Sub-MOA and he killed an elk last year with it.

Looking into a different scope and stock seen a really nice curly maple I think this would look great in

No the barrel isn’t fluted
My other option was a tikka 25-06 but I had issues with accuracy out of a tikka before so I chose to give the Winchester a shot and plus it was in better condition and came with ammo
