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.
Dress'em where you shoot'em....
