    Some years ago, late 80's a dealer friend of mine let my brother and I know of a limited run of Win 70 rifles coming out in our fav cal, the H&H. If I recall the distributor was named WAMO, probably out of business by now. Supposedly only 300 or so were made. We got one each and then of course sold them like drooling idiots! So the other day while perusing my fav auction site Gunbroker I see this rifle, looks suspiciously like the ones bro and I had. Bro still had a pic of his and sure enough spittin image! So I snagged it, got it home yesterday. Its gorgeous. Sucker feeds empty cases from the magazine, something not all rifles will do, even CRF. This is of course post 64 push feed, do I care? NADA! Going to try to shoot a few rounds thru before leaving for Namibia next Thursday. IMG_3753.JPG IMG_3748.JPG IMG_3750.JPG IMG_3751.JPG IMG_3752.JPG

    Ses....Half of my rifles are push feed and the other half CRF. Like you said "I don't care". When you get back from Nam, and if you are wanting to sell it, contact me. Good luck on your hunt!

    My favorite M70 in my safe is a push feed... doesn't bother me a bit..

    Would love to add a 300H&H M70 to the collection one day.. push or CRF wouldn't matter

    Great find you've got there!

    There's no such thing as an ugly 300 H&H, but yours is certainly way on the nice side!

    Always cool to get a chance to make right a previous bonehead move!

    I've been playing with my dad's old pre 64 300 h&h. Still so wonderfully accurate with 180 grains out of that 26 inch barrel

    Very nice! I have an XTR in 300 Wby. That thing feeds slicker than any other rifle I own or have owned. Racking a round from the mag to the chamber is one fluid motion. I try to keep my eye out for more of the XTR's at good prices, they have really gone up lately

    Certainly no gripes about that one. A great caliber in a Model 70 that looks to have been taken good care of.
