    winchester ultimate shadow

    Hi all! New to the forum and bloody great one it is.

    I was wondering if anyone would know someone thats looking to sell a winchester ultimate shadow in .270 cal or similar? I used to own one but regretfully sold it a few years back due to moving overseas. "dumbass aye"! Anyway im very keen to purchase another one and it seems the importer has trouble getting them in to suppliers these days. ( although the price has jumped a lot since last buying one in 2011 from HnF ) I have a Winchester lightweight model 70 in .270 but i miss the shadows feel Maybe swaps or something?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome. I have owned a couple of .270's (still have a synthetic stainless Remington 700 in that calibre). It knocks stuff over well enough even if it damages a bit to much on smaller game like fallow.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
