Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Default Couple new projects...

So I traded my MRI/Sako .270 Win to a friend in Wyoming that's building me a 7mm RUM on a Browning action with a fluted Shilen. Then last night we got the wild idea to build the Sako into a 6mm-06 or something along those lines. So I just bought him a 29" #3 Bartlein 6mm barrel and in exchange he's going to take the Kreiger off my old Sako and put it on a Ruger M77 (currently a 7 RM) that I have and rechamber it to 270 WSM to shoot the new Matrix bullets...should be interesting...pics to follow soon...

Sounds like a major switcheroo. Good luck!

Yes a major switcheroo! And to top it off, we started the weekend going to trade my AR for his 338 RUM and ended up with the 6mm and 270 WSM idea! lol

I already dropped off the Sako a few weeks ago to him and picked up a 270 Win barreled action I'm surprising my Dad with.

The 270 WSM should fit real nice with some long VLD's...

I really like my 270WSM, it's a great round and a nice improvement over the 270WIN which is also a great round...but the short action WSM is sweet.
