Default Opinions on Winchester M70 Extreme Weather SS

Any opinions on the Win M70 Extreme Weather SS in 25-06? Would love to find a Rem Sendero SFII in 25-06 but that is next to impossible. I donít need custom accuracy because I canít shoot worth a crap. I want a stainless fluted barrel and I like the looks of the BC stock.

I have one but in .243 Win. Great looking rifle, shoots good and is easy to carry. I would t hesitate to purchase another if I was in the market for one.

For about the same money I would go Montana X2 or X3 if you like the Model 70 action

I just bought one in 7 mag 2 weeks ago. Midway had the cheapest price on them. The local gun shop matched the price on it so I bought it from them. I still have not shot it yet but planning on it this week. It feels good so hopefully it shoots well.

I never had a Winchester Extreme Weather but they do look really nice. You might also check out a Weatherby Vanguard back country.

I have a pristine M70 Extreme Weather SS in 30.06 that I have never fired.

I would likely sell or trade it, as I simply have too many rifles stashed away to play with them all.

I had a 7mm. It shot great. Really liked it. Only sold it because I started building more customs and it was taking up space.
