    .270 what rifle would you have..???

    Hello,, im thinking of getting a .270, i would like to ask what your thoughts are on a parker hale super safari , cz , brno etc. Mauser would be my dream choice but as funds are low and you can pick up a cheap alternative this what im after....
    any information would be most appreciative..
    cheers

    save up a bit, get a tikka t3 sporter, 20 inch barrel, you can get one for about 750, look after it and it will last you for years, rather than buying a cheap option then regretting it and buying again, just my thoughts, good luck with the search

    ps, 130 grain barnes tsx, 55 grains of h4350 gives me 2713 fps in my 270, fast and flat shooting calibre

    Good thinking - .270's are a lot of fun! I am currently on my third so am something of a fan... lowish funds don't have to be a problem, my current rifle is a Sako AV circa 1989/90 - I paid 375 with 57 rounds of homeloads last summer - these loads have grouped .5" at 100 yards (3 rounds). Previously I had a Remington 700 which was 250, a good rifle but the stock trigger isn't in the same class as the Sako. I can't comment on parker hale or the others you mention but for my money it would be hard to do better than an old (well cared for) Sako!

    Ive been using a stainless synthetic t3 lite .270 for 8 years, it's had 1000's of rounds through it still clover leaves, looks like a tool, works like a tool, and to date has never let me down (i've let it down but never the other way round). does need a moderator to get the best from it.

    For my money I would take this over any modern offering at this kind of price. It's a private sale so would likely be open to negotiation. I noticed it the other day when flicking through the adverts.

    The first rifle I started off with was this very model and chambering. The quality of build is outstanding as are the materials used. Ignore the age of the rifle. That is testament to the build quality.

    My PC is ultra slow tonight so cannot see the pictures on the add but from memory i don't think it was even threaded for a mod???

    It would be good if you were interested to get the bore checked but if the seller is honest with the round count and how it's been stored and looked after, I would find out more about this rifle. I actually own an old model Sako 243 from the same era and it's one of the most accurate rifles I have shot with factory ammo. They really were well made in those days.

    xmarksman9870 parkerhale all the way mine cost me 40 quid i can clover leaf with it at 100-150 yards easily, a lot of people give the old parkerhales a hard time fair enough there not the best looking rifle but they certainly do the job and a good job at that, also if you happen to get it wet or a little scratch on it it wont make you cry

    also i was informed the other day that its parkerhale that actually makes all the barrels for your top market rifles
    LIVE AND LET LIVE! THERES ALWAYS ANOTHER DAY!

    I totally agree - this is the same as my rifle bar mine being left handed, screwcut, and with optilocks - forgot to mention that it also likes Norma 130grainClick image for larger version.

    I bought a BSA 1st pattern Monarch from my local dealer while he was sorting out my 6.5 I gave him 150 clamped on a S&B 6 x 42 for 200, with home loads it shoots 1/2inch groups. It is now in the gun cabinet of Miffy on here I gave it to him, anyone who has seen him shoot will be impressed so it went to a good home. So you can buy good rifles very cheaply.
