i find it somewhat silly that you hear the 270 and 30-06 fans comparing them to the 7mm rem mag and 300 mags.. i continually hear statements like my 270 will do everything a 7mm mag will do ..and its just not true! i love thm all, and all are very good cal. but a 270 and 30-06 are no 7mm mag or 300 mag..i often use the example..when i was in 9th or 10th grade i used to lift weights in the gym with the bigger seniors..they would bench 220lbs which was all the weight there was..so i worked and worked until i could bench 220lbs..my boast was "i can lift as much as they could"...which just wasn't true for while we all were benching 220lbs, some of those older boy's could have benched much more. while you may be able to reach 3000fps with a 140 grain nosler in your 270 win (if your lucky)..YOU WILL NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS REACH 3300fps like the mags!!...a deer will never know the diffrence...true true..but your 270 or 30-06 is not a 7mm mag or a 300 mag the same as my pickup is not the same as a vet... all are very good cal in there place where they should be..no need to apologies for using a 270 or 30-06 very capable...but your only kidding yourself by comparing them...a little more weight..(very little)..and a little more recoil...but if you want a little extra performance it's the price you have to pay...and that my friends "is the rest of the story"
