Nice looking gun. I have a Mossberg 590 shot gun. Havn't shot a Mossberg rifle though.
I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but let's take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself.

Outstanding Choice!! Guns and Ammo rated this rifle very high if I remember correctly. :sniper:

I just finished reading an article in the shooting times about this rifle. Sounds like it shoots 1 inch groups or less with most factory ammo, handles and functions well, so I think you've done well with your purchase.

Looks like a sweet kit for sure. Nice to see Mossberg back making bolt action rifles. I think you will prefer the synthetic stock out in the wet bush. Most will agree that the .270 Win round is one of the best all around cartridges. It also happens to have a flat trajectory making it one of the most accurate rounds. The late Jack O'Connor prefered this round and probably helped make it as famous as it is today.

Take your Christmas tree down you hillbilly. Just because there's still snow on the ground there, doesn't mean Santa is coming.

There really isn't any 'bush' to speak of up here, at least not in the sense which you are referring. I am not averse to synthetic, in fact I was originally planning on getting a Ruger M77 hawkeye in synthetic/stainless, I just think the laminate is really eye catching, and if I get the model without the hole in the stock it won't have as much flex in it and will probably balance better. In the end we'll wait and see how it feels with the synth stock when I get it next week.


I wasn't sure where you were posted. Must get boring up there with no bush. Don't get me wrong, nothing looks better than the natural beauty of wood (from trees that is :D ). The laminate wood does look sharp too. Why didn't you just buy one of the regular synthetic stocked rifles? Did you get a chance to put your mitts on one before buying to see how they feel and shoulder?

I'm gonna go buy one of those rifles now. I can always use another for the collection.
