    My cousin-best friend-shooting buddy has 2 pre-64 Winchester Model-70 Westerner's with consecutive serial numbers in .264 Win Mag. They are a hoot to shoot. Big fire ball and muzzle blast with Win factory ammo. Both shoot under 1" at 200 yrds. Serious :D factor.

    I tried 160s in mine without success. I was getting big time excess pressure using h4831, h4831sc, and h1000. I decided against using the 160rn because i didn't really see a need for it after the 140s had dropped two elk dead two seasons in a row.
    For a fast fun shooter try out some 107 sierra match kings. Those are a kick in the pants and shoot about as flat as you can get. Makes it look like gravity is a myth.

    I plan on trying the 156 Norma Oryx and 160 Woodleigh this summer. But I don't really have a good reason why, as 140 Partitions will do anything I ask of her.

    I have a Maine moose hunt in the works. Supposedly they aren't as tough as elk but there is slot of meat to punch through to get into the vitals

    Was that the max charge for the 129s? Were you happy with that? I haven't tried Retumbo with 130s yet.
    66 grains of 780 was pretty accurate, and decent velocity at 3280ish with 130 Accubonds. Maybe try 7828 in the mid 60s charge levels also.

    67.5 grains is max that Hogdgon shows with Retumbo and Hornady 129's.

    Boat Paddle's Twin Sister

    Tang419,

    My college buddy had and All-Weather in .270Win and I got to hold it when I went to visit his hometown. I had to have one like it...so for a couple years I looked for one. Finally on a work trip I found one in a gunstore that a recently divorced woman brought in the day before. Called my wife to warn her of the purchase and brought it home. It also is in .270Win and will shoot 5 shot dime sized groups at 100yrds. I wouldn't mind having one in .300Win Mag.

    Anyway, you need to pick up her Twin Sister, the SP101. I'm getting one to carry on the hunts in .327 Fed Mag. It's almost madatory to pick up one of the little revolvers if you like the All-weather.
