    I think Winchester hit a home run for the ultimate Western Deer & Antelope Rifle in the .264 Win Mag. I will say if you don't reload look elsewhere. I just last year redid my Model 70 in H S Precision Stock & Cerakote & I could not be happier.

    What did the coating cost ya? I went with a bell and carleson stock (military brown with black splatter) and would like to match the action and barrel after fluting is done.

    Wow. Thats almost a duplicate of the stock I ordered! Looks killer. I have been trying to find someone local to do the coating but no luck yet.

    Fantastic caliber and super rifle. Handloading is just about a must; finding any factory ammo is tough but not impossible. The only thing I don't care for in most of the magnum rifles is the 24/26 inch barrel length on most of them. I prefer shorter barrels no longer than 22 inches.

The only trouble I've had is when I've tried to use it in the timber. Very unforgiving if you you hit the smallest twig or fir bough.
    No caliber of rifle will shoot through twigs, brush, etc.; no matter what weight bullet is used; etc., etc.; etc. Anyone that says theirs will, I say PROVE IT.

    I'm a believer in the 6.5 caliber (260/6.5x284), but not so much the 264 bc I'd rather use that much case capacity to push heavier bullets. Having said that I'm kicking around the idea of getting a 6.5wsm made in an ultralight rifle.

    I've taken most of the game in my album with my favorite rifle, originally a 300WM but now a 264WM. I've had excellent terminal performance at a variety of ranges from the 140gr accubond and more recently the 140gr Berger VLD. I truly prefer the performance of the accubond but the Berger cut my groups in half and improved my hits at longer range especially in the wind. I cuss the Berger for doing what it is supposed to rather than exiting but nothing I've shot with it has traveled over 30yds. The 270WSM and 264WM have shown identical excellent terminal performance with the 140gr accubond for me. Biggest disadvantage of the 264 is that it requires a longer rifle to shine. Mine has a 25" barrel but longer adds speed.

    For a short easy packing mountain muley or sheep gun, the 270WSM is hard to beat. For real long shots with current bullets the 264WM is darn hard to beat. I love them both.

    I think both the 270WSM and 264 will benefit from the new long range accubond when it becomes available. I'm right now in the process of getting my dad's old rifle re-build into a 270 win designed around the 150gr LRAB. After weighing the parts it should be right at 8.36lbs scoped, slung, loaded, and ready to hunt.
