    Advice on 270

    Hi hope some one give me some advice,I cannot make my mind up on restocking my 270 browning A bolt which has a wooden stock but think the wood is moving when wet or trading it in for a 6.5x55 or some other caliber with a some type of glass stock

    You wont gain anything by changing to 6.5x55 other than its a wee bit softer recoiling. Beware of the cheap plastics stocks.

    Have a look at Boyds if you fancy a laminate stock. Put one my P.H. 270 last year and it has transformed it.

    I got a Bell & Carlson synthetic for my Tikka T3 also in .270, no problems with it, cost me around 245.

    why do you think it is "moving"?

    dry it and seal it properly and it shouldnt absorb anything significant unless you are wading with it

    Hi if we have had bad weather and been out for a few days stalking no matter how many time s I dry the gun off the grouping is pants. Leave it to dry out and use the 300wm for a week then back out with the 270 and bingo cock on bull so I am thinking the wood is moving
