I bought a new rifle. Being a bit of a traditionalist, I found what I thought is a good deal on a Mauser M12 in .270 Winchester. So far, so good. It seems to like 140 and 150 grain loads best. About 1" at 100. Only factory loads so far until I can catch back up with my .270 loading stuff that's in Oregon right now.
I love the 3 position safety, smooth feeding and excellent trigger. I hope I can bring home a nice buck from Montana with it this fall!

I was just going to ask about the 130 grain bullets?

That rifle does have a beautiful stock, it will be a shame when that first scratch is put into it but then it becomes a shooter.
