So tomorrows my birthday, went to my grandparents and my grandfsther goes i know you said just to get gift cards but we already got you something so you have you choice of either one, i was whatever you guys got me if fine, he goes back to the gun cabinet and pulls out this little beauty! My uncles interarms mark x 270 with a mannlicher stock. When my uncle killed himself my grandparents got all his guns, hes slowy given away the couple customs he had and he decided to give me this one since ive drolled over since the day i laid eyes on her. Has an old leupold vx 2 2-7 on it, not real crazy about the scope selection but that can be changed. Now the only other question is what do you guys think i should do with my remington 700 270 i have now, should i sell it or turn it into something else, which brings the question, can i make it a .257 weatherby?
The scope the way its setup isnt in the best location for me, i think its under powered for the cartidge, for my long guns i like a minimum of 3-9 but have been liking the 4-12 range lately, looking at putting a vx one 3-9 on it
