Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather Description

Get extreme accuracy under any conditions. The Bell and Carlson™ composite stock provides a solid feel and features trim and lightweight ergonomics. It has a textured charcoal gray matte finish for rugged good looks and improved grip in adverse conditions. The sculpted cheekpiece helps insure proper eye-to-scope alignment from any shooting position. The thick, black Pachmayr® Decelerator® pad helps take the felt recoil bite out of high performance magnum cartridges. The claw extractor offers Controlled Round Feeding so the cartridge may be easily withdrawn from the chamber at any point after it leaves the magazine. The cartridge feed lips are part of the receiver for improved reliability. The classic Three-Position Safety offers both on safe and fire positions, plus a middle position that locks the firing pin yet still allows the bolt to be operated, providing a greater margin of safety when checking the chamber condition or unloading. The Extreme Weather SS rifle's free-floating, fluted stainless steel barrel is made in the same factory as those found on U.S. military rifles and machine guns, and features a recessed Target Crown to protect the rifling. With quality optics, premium ammunition and good shooting conditions, 1 MOA accuracy can be expected. Two stainless steel sling swivel studs are installed. (Scope and mounting system not included.)

    300 wsm extreme weather ss
    I purchased this rifle, and properly broke in the barrel (1 shot, cool, clean,ect...) more like extreme non accuracy. Dont purchase this rifle. Bad ju ju. Best group in 55 degree weather was 4”. I can shoot well. I hav...e allot of shooting/ reloading experience (40+ years). They improperly bedded the recoil lug and left a big glob attatched to the barrel just in front of the recoil lug. more

    Inaccurate
    I bought 2 of these rifles in 300 Win mag. The serial numbers are 2 apart. Neither of these rifles will shoot under 2 inches with ANY load. Most groups were in the 4 inch range. I have tried factory loads and handloads w...ith bullets ranging from 130 to 208 grains. This was off a lead sled with a Vortex Viper PST scopes. Currently both of these rifles are back at Winchester and were sent there by a certified Winchester gunsmith. The gunsmith stated he had 4 other identical rifles in his shop that were the same caliber that were doing the same thing. All are being sent back to Winchester. more

    Fantastic rifle!
    I struggled for a long time choosing between the Winchester Model 70 EW, and a Sako A7. I couldn't be happier with my decision. I love weight of the rifle. It is quick in my hand, and easy to carry through the tough Alas...kan terrain. The Bell and Carlson stock is just remarkable It was the feel of the stock that tipped the scale over the Sako for me. It just felt "right" when I held it to my cheek. more

    Well made and dependable rifle
    I have one of these in 30-06, I like it a lot, Mauser claw extractor, blade ejector and a fixed magazine all make for a reliable and good shooter. I am getting under 1" groups at 100 yards with Berger 168 grain over... reloader 22. I also get really tight groups with 180grain Nosler partitions. I only shot a few of those to re-sight in for elk this year, but two shots could be covered with a dime. My only real complaint is the 22" barrel, I get 2744 or thereabouts with both bullets (using RL 22 for both). The trigger is really good, but no better than the classic model 70 trigger, there was no need to change that. I really wish they would offer this in .35 Whelen, but I have a Hart barrel on order to rectify that. more

    Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather
    Hands down the finest rifle assembled by any company. The Bell and Carlson stock combined with the stainless steel barrel cannot be matched unless you strictly want a wood grain rifle. But for hunting anywhere in N. Amer...ica this rifle is the best on the market. If you don't believe me, try to purchase one at Cabelas or any store. You cannot find them For sale. My only compliant is I have purchased a Remington and Browning in the past...what was I thinking! more

    Model 70 in Stainless Steel
    I just purchased a new Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather assembled in Portugal. I’m a huge fan of the Model 70 and own several. The fit and finish on this rifle is excellent. I waited over a year for this rifle in 30...0 Win Mag. The web site needs to be updated, the 300 Win Mag. has a 26 inch barrel and the Bell and Carlson stock is black w/ gray web. The rifle looks fantastic, the stock complements the stainless perfectly. I put a Meopta 4-12 x 50 BDC scope on it with Talley mounts.Two years ago I purchased an Extreme Weather in 30-06 built by FN in South Carolina facility; it is my go to rifle, and the only rifle I hunt with now. The Extreme Weather is robust and durable. I trust the model 70’s controlled round feed. I like the factory set 3 ¾ pound trigger pull and the MOA trigger is crisp. The Extreme Weather is a little finicky about ammo, requiring some effort and reloading to achieve sub MAO accuracy. The Extreme Weather isn’t cheap; but there is no need to modify this factory package. more

    This is Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather it's a lightweight all-weather rig designed for adverse conditions encountered from the desert top the high alpine and and it features some semi-custom features that should int...erest hunters in 2017 like all model 700s today it's built on a controlled round feed action action with the pre-64 type claw extractor many hunters desire the reliability delivered by controlled round feed and but the truth is any quality bolt-action rifle built today should deliver reliable feeding and extraction what controlled round feed delivers better than most action is silenced. Others usually stalk game with a full magazine but in an empty chamber they plan to chamber around just before a shot is imminent when they do so with controlled round feed. It chambered in 13 calibers from 243 winchester to to 325 WSM to to 338 win mag. more

  • WINCHESTER M70 EXTREME WEATHER STAINLESS STEEL RIFLE
    In the world of factory rifles, a proven performer has been the mighty Winchester M70. With a manageable price tag, the M70 performs as well as much higher priced rifles, and has features that make it stand above the pac...k.The most notable of the features that carries over from previous generations is Controlled Round Feeding, which uses a larger extractor to grip the round more firmly and control it while it feeds all the way into the chamber. It continues to hold onto the case after firing and controls the ejection based upon how the bolt is operated. Open it slowly and it presents the case into your hand to prevent it from being flung clear and protect it for reloading. Open it rapidly, and it launches the case clear for a speedy follow up, so you can make a second shot in the field if needed.The M70 Extreme Weather comes in 14 different caliber configurations for varmint control to big game hunting. At a range between 6 pounds 12 ounces all the way to 7 pounds 4 ounces, it is still light enough to maintain nimbleness on the stalk and carry it for miles into the backcountry. Holding this rifle in your hands, you can feel the craftsmanship that is present throughout and the design that sets it apart from other rifles in the price range. If you are hunting in places with extreme environmental conditions, this rifle will perform beyond your expectations and take all of the abuse you can put it through. more
