Little bored with the lockdown, thought I'd share.

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/galleries/14736994#Post14736994

All built on M-70 classic actions, stocked in McMillan Bridges Edge stocks (except the .300 which is regular fill).

Top to bottom;

.280 Rem factory FW 22" BBL, Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8
7mm Rem Mag 24" Lilja, Swarovski Z5 3.5-18 BT
.338 Win Mag Factory bbl bobbed to 23", Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8
.300 Wby Mag 26" factory bbl, Swarovski Z5 3.5-18 BT

All are sub MOA shooters.

.280 likes the 150 Nosler BT at 2900 fps.
7mm Rem Mag likes the 150 BT (3200 fps) and the 160 Nosler AB at 3100 fps
.338 likes the 225 TSX at 2900 fps.
.300 likes the 180 TSX or TTSX at 3150 fps.

Share 'em if you got 'em

You all 'round here wouldn't care for mine as they all wear factory walnut. And are bone stock except professionally honed 3 pound triggers.

Nice rifles buddy. You always have nice ones. As for me, all I have left of my model 70 collection is my pre 64's. I really made the decision to just keep the pre's a few months ago. After that, I sold my last classics. They were beauties. One you asked about when it was on GB (7wizzum), the other a minty 7mm08 FWT:


7 WSM classic stainless in painted and glass bedded tupperware that I also added the red pachmayr decelerator:

Properly freefloated and glass bedded:

7mm08 classic featherweight:

I ended up selling the leupold, so I was only into this one by $350.00....
Like I've been saying, I'm glad there are still guys out there that love Leupold rifle scopes!!!!

My 375 H&H in a Poundr stock with a cut and fluted factory barrel. I took it on an unsuccessful SE Alaska brown bear hunt in 2015.

My 416 Rem in a magnum fill McM fitted with Jim Wisner's front and rear sights. I took it to Zimbabwe in 2017.

Nice rifles gents.

BSA, I always liked the looks of that WSM. Had a 7-08 FW for a while, sent it down the road.

Ed - looks like an Echols on that .416? Factory barrel?

It's a Win Express that I just dropped the metal in. No bedding. It is the factory barrel and shoots great.

All my Classics wear factory wood. .270, 7mm RM, .30-06, .300 WM (x2), .338 WM, .375 H&H (x2). All left handed, most stainless (.270 & .375s are blue). My thought was to turn one of the .300s into a .264 WM, but doubtful I'll ever get to it. I do have one McMillan stock that can be swapped out if I ever feel the need, but quite honestly, I haven't hunted one of them in 15 years. For the whitetails I chase these days I get more satisfaction carrying one of my old Winchester lever guns.

I thought about picking up another stainless express action and have a 300 H&H made..
