I may never get a MS Premier but I will get a 61 MCA in 270 WIN to match my 61 MCA 243 WIN !
At some point in my life I would like to take Sika deer in England , Scotland , Ireland , Northern Ireland , France and Czech Republic . And the MS in 270 would be perfect or quite possibly the little 243 . I could lay my hands on one in 06 or 308 pretty easy and I already have the MS 61 MCA in the halfstock version in 308 . But the 06 and 308 as well as the 6.5x55 and 7x57 are illegal at the moment for use in France . Hence my intrest in getting one in 270 .
Just think that carbine MS 61 MCA would be perfect for hunting the Continent and in 270 if I went nuts and wanted to pop a Red Stag I should be good to go with the 270 shooting 130 grain Nosler BT's or Hornady SST's !
