I ordered a new rifle and scope this week after doing my homework for weeks on calibers, scopes, and ammunition.

I decided on a Savage Model 11 270 WSM and a Leupold 4.5-14X40LR.

Like I said, I've done my homework. I've read two hundred or more threads if I read one on the 270 WSM, scopes and ammo. I read some articles too, but I find you have to take those with a grain of salt since some new guns and scopes trade hands between the authors and manufacturers. Good, bad, it was all well worth the reading. Add to that all the questions I've asked of people I know who I regard as knowledgeable in hunting rifles, ballistics, and optics.

Should have them both by the 2nd and hope to post some good news and range target pics within a couple of weeks.

Try 67 gr of RL-19 with a 130 gr Interbond, it proved impressive last season on 2 good sized bucks.

sky, I looked at the VXII's, but I came across a pretty good deal on ebay that included the base and rings for the VXIII I purchased.

I don't reload yet Kimberman, but, it is something I hope to pick up before long. A co-worker of mine is heavy into varmint hunting and long range shooting reloads all his ammo and has offered to get me started. I'm going to start out by trying both Winchester Supreme 140gr Accubonds and the Federal Vital Shock pushing a Nosler 140gr Accubond. From everything I've read, those factory rounds have given the most consistant longrange performance and accuracy. I read a couple of threads where some fellas out west were having good luck with 110gr in I believe a A-Frame? Anyway, I'm looking forward to doing a little experimentation down the road. Thanks for the suggestion.
