    Thank you all for the info. I will be "pulling the trigger" on the .270wsm within the next week or two. Now to figure out a scope lol! I am out of touch with both rifles and optics, hunting in NY doesn't require either to excel. I haven't bought new rifle in ages, bow is a different story. Thanks again guys I appreciate it.

    I don't think you will regret it. As far as the scope, plan on spending as much or more for it than the rifle. I use leupold scopes, they seem to work for me. I have an 26 year old VXII 3x9 on my 25-06 and a newer VXI 4x12 on the .300 Win, not top of the line by any means but I'm happy with them.

    You might look at the new redfield scopes as they are now property of leupold. Im a leupold guy but I compared the vx1 to the revolution and I was just as happy with the redfield for less money.

    I have heard redfield has been resurrected better then ever. I was thinking about getting something with bullet drop recticle. Never used one and not really sure how well they actually work.

    I am thinking about scope with that type of rectile too and asmuch as I like leupold I am really thinking about the Ziess thats about $400.

    $400 is more then inexpensive enough ! I won't say cheap because nothing is cheap anymore lol. Do you remember what model that scope is? I am very interested. Thanks mm

    You'll love the. 270wsm. I built mine off of a browning a-bolt action and now shoot hand loads. But when I was shooting factory ammo it loved 140gr ammo. Especially the Win Supreme accubonds. I topped mine off with a Burris 4.5x14 with balsitiplex reticle. It used to be $389.....but they are blowing them out for $200 now because they came out with a new model. Solid scope, I've been really happy with it. Especially for $200.
