… You can do it if you want but I would suggest you do a case volume test instead of or do it after sorting by weight.

  

I’m not a serious rifle target shooter, the case weight helps me cull the outliers. I also clean up the flash holes and trim to uniform length (after sizing) with RP cases,

Don't need any of these, but like the antiquated appearance of the old-style turret; same reason I picked

My thought regarding scopes/mounts on pre-64 70’s — I stay only somewhat period correct on my guns.  I always mount up a scope on my guns and do shoot and hunt with them.  I have used Buehler,…

…being among my favorite scopes.  They are essentially fully modern optically yet made in USA with blued steel tubes.  The -1 and Micro-Tracs are 70’s-early 80’s era, so not pre-64 period correct, though they sure look it.  A blued steel tube looks better to me than aluminum anodized scopes.

I’m not a fan of PMC, will leave it at that. Chris’ Lyman anecdote reminds me of an experience with Hornady 45-70 dies. Could not get any neck tension on cast bullets sized @.459. Ordered up a Lyman short neck sizer (7135057) and taper crimp die (7153124)…

… too far, especially if practicality is important.  It's just what I do... On the infrequent occasions that I decide to "accessorize" one of my M70s, I start by doing what I did above.  Go to the Shooters Bible closest to the year the gun was made and "shop" based on what I could have bought at…

… but I don't see how you can get the front ring into place without disassembling the turret...  Oddly, I have a decent early K6 (with the exposed target/click adjustments) that came to me with Redfield solid rings installed as above.  So it can be done...

Let me know your preferences, as I have a good number more scope mounts for M70s lying around here than I will ever use.

With or without a set trigger, no '76 is a target rifle.

Rifles And Bullets

American Rifleman, vol 37, no. 10, December 15, 1904, pages 208-209

Google Books scanned this, yet no hits...

Target shooting as a sport has been more or less sharply divided into match rifle shooting and military rifle shooting. The points in which the match rifle…

…under adverse conditions, even if at the expense of some accuracy.

In view of these considerations, it is scarcely to be wondered at that the target rifle, developed with the sole object of shooting from the offhand position at 200 yards, as in vogue by the German-American (Schuetzen) clubs,…

…more and more closely to the military, so much so that most of the match rifles now in use in England are merely military rifles fitted with fine target sights. Skill in shooting at the long ranges, whether with military or match rifles, involves not only good holding, but also a knowledge of the…

…many expert riflemen fully capable at the mid and long ranges of holding its own against the finest match rifles that can be produced. There are few target sights that afford better aiming than the 1901 model Krag sight, and while it is true that the target sights as a rule are further apart and adapted…

…position, the modern high power rifle seems to shoot so much better from the prone position as to more than compensate for any slight advantage the target sights might thus gain over our military sight. A glance over the records of those long range matches of recent years that have been open to both…

…pitch of the rifling must be; if the bullet is too long for a given pitch of rifling to handle, this will be shown by the bullet going through the target in a sideways or tipping position--in the parlance of the rifleman, it keyholes. It is necessary for the bullet to be kept point on from

The gun sold for $4700.00.  They do not charge a buyer's fee.

I'm sure it made a Winchester .22 collector very happy.

…agreed with me, and having two other slowlocks, convinced me. The bolt is not numbered either. I don't know when they started doing that, but my #7001 has a numbered bolt. A thanks to you for finding this rifle for me. The other one we found had added scope blocs. Added in the wrong place too.

This one is different that the first one I found.  This one says .070" to .077".

…Jerry-

Your M70 is a standard rifle.  In the 243 WIN chambering, the standard rifle is considerably less common than the featherweight version, but not exactly rare…

…either. For perspective, according to Roger Rule's book there were 24,707 Featherweights, 6,812 Standard Rifles, 4,614 Varmint Rifles, 683 Target Rifles, 291 Super Grade Rifles, and 260 Super Grade Featherweights made in 243 WIN.

You can look up the year of (receiver) manufacture, based on…

…polishing room records, under the "Resources" tab on this website.

The factory override trigger on the M70 has sufficient adjustment for weight of pull and over travel that it can usually be adjusted enough to get a satisfactory result.  Personally, I don…

…t mess with the sear engagement surfaces on M70 triggers (I'd leave that to an experienced gunsmith), but you can mess with the three hex nuts on the trigger adjustment screw that control weight

…fore-end tip to see if the extra pressure helps or hurts.  I don't think bedding would reduce value to any major extent on such a common caliber 70, but it will make it harder to re-sell if you ever choose to do so by arousing suspicion.  But if you've only tested it with that one brand of ammo
