Winchester model 70xtr in .270win

Greg, ya gotta love those old military rifles. I used to shoot a .303 and my best bud shoots a 6.5x55. That is a great deer rifle and one you'd have no problem shooting at targets all day. :thumbsup:
Was your 6.5 manufactured by huskevarna?(sp)

Yes it was, and I modified the trigger so the two stage millitary creep could be taken out and the trigger pull is set at 3 lb and let off is very crisp. I also changed the safety to a Buhler type 2 position rather than the old 3 position millitary safety. I cut, bent and rewelded the bolt handle and modified the knob to be flattend and lay closer to the stock, the next thing I plan on doing is to modify the floor plate to a hinged one, so I don't have to ratchet every shell out manually. :cool:

Greg, the trigger creep in my old .303 is the reason i let it go. My friend has not done any modifications to to his 6.5(it's even got the full wood stock still) I've heard him cursing many times about havin to take shells out 1 by 1, so when you get around to making the floor plate hinged, lemme know how it turned out so I can pass that on to him :thumbsup:
