What a great rifle! Too bad they ruined it with that 270 WSM chambering.
Ouch! What specifically dont you like about it?
I am old school. Thats it mostly. I didnt kill a big pile of deer with a WSM, I did it with a .270 win. It wasn't broke, and didn't need fixed, IMO. I am the reason marketers ignore the 50 plus demographic. I have seen it all, and no sales tactics will work on me anymore.
Its like someone coming along and saying turkey is great for Thanksgiving, but from now on you really ought to eat prime rib, its better for these 7 reasons, blah blah blah. I already had turkey for 50 thanksgivings, its a TRADITION that no prime rib could replace....does that make sense?
Also, I am a big fan of the late Jack OConnor, who will always be tied to the .270 Win. If you have never read his work, you need to.
