    Welcome to the dark side, Bro. I've had great luck with factory Federal 130 NBTs on whitetail, and handload 160 Partitions over RL22 at 2850 fps for everything else. You're gonna love this chambering.  ;)

    Well I already love the gun so as long as the damn thing shoots anything better than patterns, I’m better than halfway there!  It will be tough not making fun of the damn .270 again... :s

    I still have the barrel from my first .270 (.270 WSM).  I have no clue how many rounds it has seen, but I can tell you exactly how many I put through it before the barrel came off.  that would be a big ZERO.  You still have time.....

    To be fair, I picked up my M70 used and was only interested in the fact it was a short action with a magnum bolt face.  I never even gave the .270 a chance since it was NOT going to stay in whatever it was factory chambered for.

    Well the plan is to shoot it and see how it goes.  All jokes aside my last .270 was an amazing rifle but I just never fell in love with the chambering, don’t really know why. No real good reason I can think off.

    But in all reality there is nothing wrong with the ol’ .270.  I’d pain me to take the barrel off this gun if it shoots great because it’s the original barrel.  You guys will see why when I post pics of the gun on Friday.   But if it’s a crappy shooter it will be going to Somedude in a Priority box in a huge hurry to become something else to be determined.

    I am going to sneak in a confession here.  I have a .270 short, Luckily they named it 6.8spc, so people forget what it is.
    Bet yours is more pretty.  Post a picture already

    If I had not purchased the rifle with a specific use in mind I would have purchased at least one box of ammunition to run through it.

    I have nothing against the .270 as I have no experience with the caliber at all.

    There are a few boxes of .270 around here.  Hell there are a few boxes of all sorts of stuff around here.  I just ordered a large commercial rack so I can finally sort out all my ammo.
