A Nice Pre 64 Model 70 in .220 Swift


One of the fellas shared his very nice Pre 64 Model 70 in the classic .220 Swift. The vintage box of ammo real goes nicely with it. He said the price sticker on the box was $1.07 Imagine that. The rifle is topped with a 4x Weaver in Weaver bases and rings. A very nice walk/stalking varmint rig even for today.

The swift is not a bad round and no doubt was the king of velocity for many years. I have found that to get truly great accuracy from the swift, you have to back your load down to .22-250 velocities and when you do that, then what’s the point? The 22-250 is a better round and if you can’t at least get more velocity from the swift then…
