    VOERE .270 BOLT-MAGAZINE SPORTING RIFLE

    VOERE .270 BOLT-MAGAZINE SPORTING RIFLE
    Some sites and reviews seem to like them. I am tempted by this one. Comes with a sight though I would change it for a swari that is waiting for my 270 slot. Harris bipod alsocheap but is it a wise buy,

    A local gun shop has had a slightly cosmetically battered but mechanically good Voere rifle in .270 on the shelf for as long as I can remember. They keep offering it to me for ever reducing prices - last offer was 120 (even though it's listed at 190 on Gun Trader) - as I'm the only customer he has who shoots .270...

    They are quite nice looking rifles, with decent Monte Carlo stocks and Mauser-type action.

    Steve, I do not have that much info.
    Holt's sealed auction 100-150 includes harris bipod and scope. Make of scope unknown. If I bid 100 that would be plus 22.50 +Vat=126.43 + say 25 to my RFD 151.43 or thereabouts with a harris and scope it has to be cheap. Pic looks OK and my stalking mate is a gunsmith so it the barrel is fine he can sort the rest.

    They are not fashionable! As a friend said about Parker-Hale also. If it said "Rigby" on its barrel the Americans would forever be on about how good they were!

    I have no idea why the 270 Wichester has become so unfashionable especially as at one time it was "THE" calibre for stalking on the hill in Scotland I picked a rather nice original BSA 1st Pattern Monarch at the Bisley fair a couple of years ago. A private sale the guy could not get an offer on it from any of the dealers. A friend who is a dealer suggested that he speak to me and I felt a bit mean only being able to offer 100 for it but things are tight.

    My dilema is not do I strip the finish off the stock to deal with the compresson marks on the side of the stock. It has the BSA high gloss finish, if it was the oiled finish it would have already have been done, but it's that high gloss plastic type varnish or whatever it is.

    When I tried it out accuracy was dissapointing, I tried some Norma, RWS and my handloads that were accurate in a CF2 Stutzen and a Majestic Featherweight but none grouped acceptably. So I brought some new Speer Nitrex which proved to be total rubbish in every rifle I tried it in. How about 4" groups at 70 yards .

    I then brought some Federal Fusion and Bingo it shoots around MOA or just over. so I would recommend trying this Federal offereing if your looking for factory ammunition for a .270 Win rifle. The Fusion I got is 150 grain.

    Now the Voers are nice rifles but if you want a real classical English type rifle in .270 I saw one for sale which is a Parker-Hale action and barrel done like a Rigby. Not sure who did the work but it's up the Rigby's standards and Rigby did do soem P-H's it seems. The rifle was at :-

    The Lincolnshire Shooting Centre at Burgh Gunshop which is near Skegness. they have a web site under LSC .

    The way I look at it is it hasent got to be pretty but functional, the Voere is just that, its for killing Deer, its cheap and if it gets knocked who cares? The rifles we choose are but tools for a job and as long as you look after them they will serve us well is my take on it.

    The reason the second hand Voere is cheap is because they are crap
    They did a review in one of our hunting mags and Voere did not do well. Also recall a chap who had one that was complete rubbish.
    If they were so good you would see more in the gun shops. The same as the PH and BSA they were so good that they don't make them any more. Just like british motorbikes

    If BSA rifles are so bad why does my pre 1965 3006 shoot 1 inch groups my pre 1968 270 shoot 1 inch groups and my pre 1972 6.5x55 shoot same hole groups, you would not want to stand in front of one.

    Steady on Jag, My Bonneville dos'nt have any oil under it & I have'nt got to carry wire ,pliers & chewing gum anymore!, I suppose thats because the last one was an 05' & the current one is an 08', something to do with copying the japs production methods I think!
