I picked up a Win M70 Super Shadow in 25WSSM for $399.99 used 3 weeks ago (20 rounds fired through it).

2 weeks ago, I painted some windows for my gunsmith’s house (I’m a painting contractor by trade!), in exchange for some smithin’ work.

He installed a ported muzzle brake on that "skinny" little barrel! Now I have the sense not to shoot it without ear protection (at least more than once).

He got the trigger pull down to 2.5 pounds.

Burris Fullfiled II 4.5 - 14 x 42mm w/Balllistic Plex scope with Silver Leupold Medium Height Rings.

I am here to tell you, that the rifle has a TOTAL weight of 7 and 1/4 pounds with a sling,scope, and bases.

ONE WORD: UNBELEIVABLE.

Our perception of this rifle’s ’recoil", this little rifle kicks less than a 22-250 shooting 55 grainers!

I’m getting around 1.5" - 2" 3 shot groups at 100 yards with the factory 115 gr. BT’s.

I used to reload A LOT for a 25-06 I once had, I have some 85 gr. Nosler BT’s and 100 gr. as well. We’ll see what I can come up with. Also, have some Sierra 75 gr.


Custom Camo Paint job on the stock.
Let’s just say that It now looks like it is in the SHADOWS!!

Here are the pics:
