    Hello all, this is my first post on the forum! I have a post-64 Winchester Model 70 in a .270 win (made in ‘82 according to the serial number) that used to belong to my grandfather. I am looking to purchase a .300 WM rifle in the near future, and I am curious if it is possible swap out the...

    I just picked up a Winchester Model 70 in 7mm-08 I was trying to date the year but am a little confused. According to what I have found online the serial number is from 1978, but I didn't think the 7mm-08 came out till after 1980? Any help on this?
