I just shot my Win. Extreme 270WSM for the first time labor day. I used 140gr. Accubond handloads with RL17 powder. I got a 4 shot group of .400 of a inch. Thats my first box of reloads!! I love this gun!! Might sell some of my others now. I have a Zeiss Conquest 3X9X40 scope on it. I highley recommend this rifle. Also little to no recoil.
I have a good buddy that has one in .300 win. mag. and all I can say it is a great shooting gun. I went out and shot it for him when he did not have time to make sure it was on before elk season. He shoots factory ammo and still gets very good groups out of it. I would love to see waht it could do with some worked up handloads. If I did not already love my Ruger .338 win. mag. I would consider one in a .338 win. mag. You definetly can't go wrong with this rifle.
