    Remington 700 lh 270 win

    Hi guys,

    What are your thoughts, i was in my local gun shop on saturday to buy some bullet heads for my 243. Anyways i bought my bits and bobs and went for a wander round as you do, and i came across this remmi 700 lh in 270 in the second hand rack . It was in excellent condition almost like new it had a leopould scope and a T8 fitted all for 600.
    I have been on the look out for another rifle for a while, this one fits the bill being left handed, synthetic stocked and moderated. It would be used for stags in scotland and an odd trip over seas for a go at some boar.
    I've put a deposit on the rifle to hold it while i get my varation sorted, i just wanted your oppinions and advice and experiances with this rifle and caliber.

    Thanks Guys

    I stalk with .308,.243 and .270. I have to say the 270 is my favourite. I have a Heym SR21 with 3-9x50 scope. I use 130grain softpoints from PRVI Partizan. Very flat shooting, low recoil yet devastating at the other end. The greatest fan of the 270 was Jack O'Connor, probably the most famous hunter/writers of North America. Will take everything from small deer to Elk.
    If I was to go to Africa, I would have to take the 270 for plains game.

    I'm a fellow left-hooker, and I shoot a Sako 691 in .270, wearing an ASE Jet-Z mod. It is quite mild with 140g reloads, although I have been using it for foxing duty over recent weeks with 90gr HPs (absolutely blinding). I think the .270 is a cracking calibre, and I am very glad that I ignored the uniformed bleating about filling-loosening recoil etc.

    I brought a 270 for the very same reasons that you have, ignore the people that say it will brake your shoulder ect they are just wimps ..Joking aside with a moddy they are a pussy cat to shoot and even without they are fine. Ballisticily you will need a wildcat or a magnum cartridge to find anything that shoots any flatter.

    I have no complaints, Stag 1933 uses one, so say no more that would be enough for me.

    I can't see how anyone can say it has harsh recoil. At the end of the day it's a necked down 30-06 with generally much lighter bullets. It has much less recoil than either of my .308s.
    Perhaps any bad press on the .270 came from the forestry years ago when the standard issue was the old BSA Monarchs and Majestics. If this was your first experience of fullbore shooting, a 270 calibred BSA might have been a rude awakening.
    .270 win ? It's a pussycat to shoot !

    I had to chip in here too.

    The .270 is a brilliant cartridge and it also baffles me when people talk about the harsh recoil etc. Think they need to man up a bit.

    I did have a BSA Monarch in .270 for a short while as a restoration project which never happened and yes if you had this as your go to rifle it would rattle you a bit to say the least. My brother and I both remarked as Anson does in his post that the reputation for harshness may have come from using this particular rifle as they were FC issue. I can just envisage an old weather battered Jock hill stalker handing his BSA to a Sasonack from south of the border and chuckling to himself for the impending ****ing ell comment to come back.

    Other than that I suspect comments come from people who talk rubbish from listening to others and not actually from direct experience.

    As has been said aswell, if used with a mod on (I nowadays don't use a rifle without one unless abroad) it's like shooting your rimfire (figuratively).

    For a one gun rifle in the UK it is difficult to improve on - good choice.

    Hi Dickie

    Nice to hear from you.

    Yes the Accumark is superb. Just sent off for a replacement B&C stock for it with 14.5" LOP.

    I haven't had time to work up a load for it yet but that is a project for this summer to get it set up for the winter period for all those pesky fallow.

    When I do get to dial it in I will update you with full report.
