This of it as a 25-06 or 6.5-06 on steroids.

In my recent quest to own everything spurned by this forum, my next purchase is definitely going to have to be a .270 :tooth:

Like I said before........a .270 is a .30'06 on Slimfast. It's just a skinnier bullet that shoots a flatter trajectory but gives up mass for speed. It was touted as "softer recoiling"......hence the ninny-ribbing.

I would like to know where the soft recoil came from.
My son has a Remington 700 BDL, in .270,& I have a Remington
Sportsman 78, in .30-06, and I don't see any difference in the recoil.

See Snake, I told you he was incoherently drunk. Not only can he not type.......but he's also dilusional.

A 7mm in the same or close bullet weight is no better that any .270. ................But at only .007 inch difference I doubt that it's calculable in most situations.

BTW, how many of you naysayers can say they own both a .270 Win. and a .280 Rem.?

The last 2 years I have killed a deer with a 270, but each time had to go find it and each ran about 50 yards even though both shots hit "at the right spot". This year I am going to use a 30.06, I also have a 7 mag, but my taxidermist said "no"

My son when he was 11 killed two deer with one shot with a .270. He was in a ground blind hunting when the does came out in the field. He picked out the biggest one and fired. The first one dropped in it's track. Then another behind her started stumbling and finally fell. What a suprize that was.
Besides, everyone should own a.270. It's the only ammo Walmart never runs out of in an ammo crisis.:D

On paper, and in the field, the .270 Winchester is a fine performer. But just try to find a cool military-surplus or modern sporting rifle chambered for it. No Garands, no FN49s, no Enfields, Schmidt-Rubins Mausers or Mosin-Nagants. No AK-47s, no SKSs, FALs, HKs or M1As. No ARs (?). Nothing that's FUN. And that means no inexpensive ammunition. You get to bend over and grab your ankles with every dollar-plus shot you take. Or, you have to roll your own, and that's still much more costly than surplus ammo. Yawn.
It is a rare circumstance that a .308 will not do what a .270 can, but the .308 is infinitely more versatile, and available in so many very useful, flexible, and drop-dead cool high-capacity packages.
