I really don’t understand the hate for 270.
But it’s cool, I guess I feel the same way about the 7RM crowd.


All of them do something better than the 30-06, but none of them do everything as well.

That makes me a Cross Shooter

I use

270 W and
7 RM


The 7 picks up where the 270 leaves off.

Anyone who thinks the 270 can do all the
7 RM does, doesn’t know as much as he thinks.

They are more similar than different. grin

We all know this thread is mostly about fun and bandwidth.

I prefer the 270, nothing more, nothing less. Familiarity, experience and a proven track record. Of course there are a host of other cartridges that would have served me just as well over the last 40+ years.

“More similar than different”.

With the 270 W & 7 RM I’d agree.


150 gr bullet @ 3000 fps in a 270 W is impressive.

160 gr bullet @ 3150 fps in 7 RM is more.
(yes I’ve done it) multiple times in same rifle.

Jwall, I shoot 270 and 6.5 so what does that makes me? Lol.
I know enough that I don’t see the benefits of the 7RM for what it’s cost shooting your standard ammo in normal hunting ranges.
Sure if you load your own heavy pills to stretch it out, otherwise you just drank the belted Magnum koolaid

There might have been a time in my past when I cared what other's thought about what I used. There was never a time when I gave a schit what others used.

Have two early 270s in a M-54 and a M-70. They work OK for deer and antelope.
For larger game, or bigger deer- a 338-06 and a 35 Whelen in early Model 70s. The 30-06 is the rifle caliber standard.
Elmer Keith was right a long time ago.

As has been said many times "it is more about bullet placement that displacement".
That said, a 6.5, 270, 7-08, 7mm Mag, etc. will all work fine if the bullet is of proper construction, and placed where it needs to be.
I am not "Bawanna Jim" by any means but have killed enough with different cal's. to know that a well placed shot is what it is all about, regardless of the head stamp.


I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

To quote Stick and yes, he's correct "Boolits matter more than headstamps."

I read another good one here, but can't remember who it was: "Joe Average is over-headstamped, over-scoped and under-bulleted."

Stick said that too - I tend to agree.

I'm going to steal this sentiment from someone else but would agree that when looking at all the virtues of the .270 and hunting the lower 48 (power, recoil, reach, accuracy, etc.), it is evident that rifle cartridge development has not progressed much in the past 60 + years.

I think that the 270 and 130 grainers are the great western hunters dream!
now if you want to talk about gayness the 6.5 gaymoor is it.

First part: I agree the 270 has a long and positive track record.

Second part: Bullshit.

It is always humorous to see how so many on this site equate gun cartridges with their sexual fantasies....

I've said the 270 is gay stuff came from some 7x57 fanciers projecting their insecurities. grin
