I have been blessed with the opportunity to relocate up to Anchorage beginning of 2016. Family is ready and to say I am excited is an understatement.
I have spent my life born and raised in Idaho and have spent my entire 18 year hunting career hunting mule deer, elk, antelope, black bear, and shiras moose here. For the last 10 years I have hunted exclusively with a Winchester 70 Super Grade 270 with 130 Nosler Partitions and a Elite 4200 2.5-10x40 scope which has accounted for 10 deer, 5 Elk, 4 Bears, and a Shiras Moose - only the moose needed more than one shot.
When I found out we were relocating I splurged and purchased a Winchester 70 Safari Express 375 H&H...Topped with a Leupold 1.5-5x. Haven't hunted with it yet, but have developed a 1 moa load with 260 Partitions at 2700 FPS. So at this point this and the 270 will be the only 2 Big Game Rifles I will be taking up to Alaska...I feel like I should be covered pretty well..
One of my concerns is weather as these are both wood stocked - however they are both sealed very well on the inside and to date, I haven't had any issue with weather here in Idaho affecting my 270.
Anyways, just thought I would ask you experts if I am going to be ok with these two rifles? Any other thoughts or suggestions? Honestly outside of being able to hunt a brown bear, I still plan to mainly use my 270 as I know this rifle like the back of my hand and the 130 partition load I have that leaves at 3150 FPS hits hard and has never failed me.
