Just bought my first 1885.
As I plan to hunt the Texas Hill Country with it, I chose to pick a caliber that will reach out within reason, so located and bought a 270 WSM.
Talk about hard to find, it took 5 months to find someone with a NIB rifle and willing to part with it at a fair price.

My question is:

Would someone know off-hand, in what years the 1885 in 270 WSM was made and about how many total were manufactured in this caliber.
I have written Winchester, but as yet, no answer.

Appreciate any info.

Thanks, James C.
