It appears that the .270 WSM has about a 150 fps velocity advantage over the venerable .270 Winchester.

I consider either one an excellent choice for elk and moose.

In 1986 Thompson/Center included it in their Contender line, both handgun and carbine.

For extended range conditions such as open country in the mountains or on the plains you should sight-in your rifle to zero at 200 metres or more.

Scope mounts pose no problem since the action is the Mark X Mauser.

It is a sloppy practice to fit Weaver rings in a 1913 rail because round recoil lugs aren't a snug fit in a square slot.

The Mark V's high Monte-Carlo cheekpiece has a pronounced slant and has the virtue of recoiling away from the shooter's face during recoil.

It is definitely not in the class of the 8mm Rem. Mag.

But the Lee wasn't exactly a straight-pull rifle, but rather a tilt-pull.

The effect of a change of uphill or downhill angle on the bullet's flight path is therefore the same. Newton don't lie.

There are no match loads for the .22 WMR which is not rated a target cartridge.

The T-Bolt I tested in .17 HMR would consistently group five rounds of Hornady ammo well inside 1/2-inch at 50 yards.

n the case of the .303 British and .45-70 there is no problem because the .303 works at higher pressure.

This is why NATO-spec ammo is not safe for use in a standard .223 rifle.
