    Winchester model 70 lightweight 243 plus extras

    Right I bought this as an all rounder but then something I like alot better in a much more unpopular caliber fell in to my hands.
    Since buying this I have bedded and free floated the barrell, bought dies, Norma and Hornandy brass, projectiles and powder.
    These can all be included.
    It shoots bloody well now with the load I have developed for it.
    It's in pretty good nick and is a very slick action with a nice adjustable trigger with no creep.
    Currently has a burris fullfield II 3-9x40 on it in genuine period weaver rings. Could come with the tasco in pics but I'd rather keep it.
    I'll let the pics do the talking now.

    Looking at $900 for everything including dies, 50 hornandy brass new unopened, 60 Norma brass twice fired some still loaded, half a bottle of ADI 2209 powder and about half a box of Sierra prohunter 100g plus the load details.

    Have just looked over what it owes me and in the spirit of not profiteering off other forum members I am dropping the price.
    $750 for everything brass, dies, projetiles and the scoped rifle

    At that price it will sell here or I will keep it, only selling to fund another project but that projet will still hapen either way.

    Yes the burris is included, it shoots hornandy white tails under moa.
    I only ran 1 box through it before doing load development and half of that was sighting in the scope.

    that's a good buy for you @Treefeller and would be good out to 300m with the whitetail ammo.

    Haven't actually thought about it to be honest, my .22, .270 and shotty do pretty much everything I need
