Wrong chambering for me, 270 WSM. Stainless NH M70 in factory synthetic stock with a silver Weaver Grand Slam 4.5-14 in stainless Leupold STD’s. Looks little used with 2 1/2 boxes of ammo, G386XXX. $429.99.

I'd buy it even though I don't really want that chambering.Heck the scope and mounts are almost worth that much.Throw in 2.5 boxes of ammo and it's like getting a free rifle.

As Bob Hagel would say"You should not use a rifle that will kill an animal when everything goes right; you should use one that will do the job when everything goes wrong."Good words of wisdom...............

Take a look at the fired cases if there are any in the 1/2 box of ammo. Make sure you are getting a good deep primer indent... a kid brought me a brand new one in .300WSM. No go boom every time. He was short on time with an out of state hunt coming up, so I never fixed it or even really knew what the problem was...the quick fix, I pulled the bullets way out on the factory loads, fire formed them and reloaded them for his trip to headspace on the shoulder. I think he lost patience and sold it that winter.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Y'all have done it. I just called them 10 minutes before closing and it is off the shelf with my name on it. With fifty pieces of once fired (eventually) brass I need to get some dies and a shell holder going. The STD's have to go. Thinking silver DD's as BSA often suggests.

Ed, I may have some once fired brass. If you handload.

As for mounts and rings, blued also look good on a stainless rifle. Here's the last 7WSM I had.

Bought in 2019, I believe, and paid $500 for it, so I'd say your deal was smoking hot!!!

That's a good deal. Hope you like it. Know others that do.

Yep, not many. I think that’s the 4th I’ve seen.
