Re: 270 and 30-06

I own both, but only hunt with the .270 now!

Re: 270 and 30-06

my bet is the 30-06 will win this poll

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: 270 and 30-06

i have both. although i have been hunting for almost 40 years, i just bought an '06 last year and have yet to get a deer with it. the 270 on the other hand, i have owned since 1982 and have taken a truckload of deer with it. the 270 with 130 corelokts is serious deer medicine.

Re: 270 and 30-06

I own both and use both every year.

.30-06 in bear season, and the .270 in deer season.

Re: 270 and 30-06

I own both. I use the .270 for deer. It has tight groups. So, I haven't fired the '06 yet.

Happiness is a fine Mauser build.

Re: 270 and 30-06

I have owned several of each over the years. My 270 right now is a WSM. My 06 is a Rem 7600 carbine. Both the 30/06 Springfield and the 270 Winchester are FINE cartridges. I predict a near tie!
