    Default Just picked up a Winchester

    I went to the OGCA show over the weekend and while not really looking for anything in particular I came across a nice old post 64 Winchester M-70 with a Redfield 4x scope (1977 to be exact). The market has long been soft on bolt action hunting rifles and this was a slow show. Not only was the asking price low the seller was motivated to sell, so I threw out a stupid low-ball offer and was surprised when it was accepted. So for a mere 300 bones I have another .30-06.

    I whipped up a standard starting load of a 168 grain Hornady A-Max over 47.9 grains of IMR 4895 and took it to the range last night. The rifle shot a nice group at 100 yards with just a 4x scope.
    Green is the new Red.

    Put you a really nice scope on there, and you will have a very accurate rifle. You plan on keeping that scope, or upgrading it?

    Awesome score regardless.

    Right now I plan on keeping the scope, it's a good USA made Redfield, though I would not mind upgrading to a Leupold 3x9 a bit later down the road. I'm thinging about putting an old Simmons 6x20x44 on it for load development then switching back to the Redfield for a hunt I have planned this fall.
