Re: Good read on our greatest cartridge.

Lack of posts on thread shows obvious disagreement on "Greatest cartridge".....Put up a link to the 270 and Rooster will be buying more bandwidth!

Yeah, what's with John Whatshisname's comment ...

For many years I'd taken more big game animals with the .30-06 than any other cartridge, though recently the .270 Winchester edged it out slightly.
.......a spiritual awakening maybe!

Re: Good read on our greatest cartridge.

Maybe he's had him some sort of epiphany?

I've never owned anything chambered in 270 Win. Are they any good?

There ok. I had one for awhile sold it though cause my 30-06 kept beating it up cause it knew it was better.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Big Ken, if the 270 is such a great and wonderful and awesome and magical cartridge how come it was never used as a military cartridge?

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Good read on our greatest cartridge.

Um, probably because it is but one of many "derivatives" of that great military cartridge?
