    I did some research and it seems that Winchester had one plant that was kind of like a subcontractor in SC. They had some problems with the sub. so they bought out the plant. From what I've read, they are planning to (or already have) opened a new plant in Columbia, SC. That's all I could scrounge up, hope it helped!

          "FN purchased the brand, and now the parts are made in Columbia, S.C., while being assembled in Portugal. It’s still difficult to get a Winchester Model 70 because FN tools their line in Columbia to make a certain gun, retools for the next one, and so on and around it goes. I question whether this is a good business model, but it’s what they do."
