my dad won a rifle at a banquet. Elk foundation, Nevada mulies or chukar foundation. Working on getting bases and a scope but I have never been around Kimber rifles or 270 wsm. First impressions: it is amazingly light. Without a scope it isn’t really fair, but wow. It’s light. The trigger is a little heavy, but that may be alright once we get to shooting it. 10 twist, 4 groove barrel. Factory ammo looks like 130 hollow points and 140 lead softpoints. It bucks a little but is threaded from the factory. Probably going to put a brake on it for that reason. Not a huge fan of the stock feel but again, without a scope it is hard to make much of a judgment. Rifle looks well made, everything is nicely finished, but not sure I am a huge fan of the texture on the stock. Kinda sandpapery? Grippy for sure , but maybe too abrasive. It looks like it would wear on fabric when carried with a sling. Questions: are there any trigger replacements or is it a matter of further tuning what it has? What should I look for to reload? This cartridge looks to be capable of 800 yards on anything with 4 legs and hooves, aside from moose but we don’t get to hunt them here. What bullets are available? Guessing h1000, and h4831 sc would be a good place to start, but I am not seeing much load data or long range bullet selection. I am working on research, but like I said I am not seeing a lot of public information so I am asking here. I will probably get at hammer bullets and see if they have something for us to test out but am open to other opinions.
