Why I love the .270............

OK, I don't really love it but I do happen to like it. Big Ken found out that I'm going to be getting a .270 so he demanded a retraction of all those mean things I say about the .270 Win. First off, it is my favorite Pronghorn slayer. Nothing better than the .270 for reaching out on the prairie. Second, I have to admit that I've talked to guys who moose hunt and they say the 150 grain Core-Lokt really does the job on moose. Third, it's the second best cartridge for all N. American game. Why the second best? Because The .30-06 still rules

Amen.

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

Re: Why I love the .270............

I am going to carry my .270 this year, got it after past season and if it shoots ok will be my rifle this year. Agree with Moosemike about the /06 being better but think my .300 Win mag is tops.

Re: Why I love the .270............

OK MIKE do you need to say something to me????? The 150 gr. cor-lokt drops deer you just won't believe it. Prong Horne the 130gr. is my choice the newer bullets thow i guess. The 130's is what made the 270 last all these years. Wonder how many guys just look at their gun after shootin game just to make sure it's still there 270....later

Now you figure I owe you an apology too?

You were right all along.


'06 is still better though. Unless we're talking Mulies and Pronghorn. Then the .270 reigns supreme and unchallenged. Man I miss Pronghorn steaks.............
