    Unless Ruger has dimensions different than the majority of gun makers, it's a long action. I've never heard of the .270 win being in any short action. Now if its a .270 wsm it probably is a short action.

    Right, a standard .270 is a long action round
    Light travels faster than sound...thats why some people appear bright before they speak

    why bother restocking it

    I have a Ruger M77 in 7mm Rem mag and you really aren't gonna do any damage at all in normal use with the wood on it. Unless it is a select grade highly figured stock leave the wood on it and oil up the scratches as they appear it only adds character to a working gun.
