    Custom Rifle in the works!

    Well, for my graduation present my parents said they would get me a new hunting rifle. It turns out a gal that works for my dad is married to a gunsmith. We decided to have him over a discuss my options. At the end of the night we decided to let him go ahead and build me a rifle.

    Specs.- Custom 270WSM
    -McMillan Hunters EDGE stock
    -Winchester Model 70 action and trigger
    -Forgot the name of the barrel but he ensured me its cut rifling and is the same barrels he used when making 6 sniper rifles for the DoD
    -Floated barrel and Bedded action

    Can't wait to get my hands on it!

    Good deal, I'm curious to know what kind of barrel though. And, why not a Rem. 700 action?

    Why not the M70 action? I'm going with 24in barrel and M70 action because he is a big fan of them, he says there's nothing fancy about them and they are very reliable. I took his word for it, he's been building rifles for many years.

    That is terrific and I think you will be very happy with the Model 70 action. I have drooled over the Model 70's for years and now that they are being made better than they EVER HAVE, I broke down and bought my son a Model 70 Extreme Weather SS in 300 WSM. I can't wait until he saves his money for a scope so we can start working on a load for it! You are also going to really like the 270 WSM as it's a fantastic cartridge that is right up there with the 270 Weatherby. Curious to know if you are going to load for it and what kind of bullet and weight?

    Is the barrell a Les Baer? It would fit the profile you described, but I don't think they do a 270 WSM.

    I heard him mention obermeyer barrels (not sure if I spelt it right) but I'm not 100% sure. He's friends with my dad and they've been talking about it, I kind of left it up to the gunsmith all I'm 100% sure about is that the barrel will be a cut rifling barrel.
