    Winchester 7mm-08 Extreme Weather

    This should be interesting...
    Low mileage Winchester Extreme Weather 7mm-08, threaded (14x1) in great condition overall with Picatinny base & 25mm Talley rings. A couple of very minor marks just in front of the rear sling stud (hopefully visible in the photos...) This is a very good rifle for a beginner or anyone wanting a solid reliable rifle - or even a 284 conversion.

    Note - I have a Bell & Carlson factory stock for an Extreme Weather available as an extra (negotiable) or for someone looking to upgrade their existing model 70,
    Looking for $1,200 rifle, base & rings.

    Quite a bit heavier than T3 though. I've got one in .270 and it's a boat anchor, but carries really well, love it to bits.

    2.8kg Tikka vs 3.06kg Winchester (strong Google-foo here). I like the Winchester's more personally - all stainless versus lots of Tupperware, nicer action, 5 in the mag vs 3 in a recycled ice cream container 😂

    I don't know of a reason why not? Anyone better qualified to answer?
