If the .270 win. ever "falls out of favor" it will be because marijuana has become legal in so many places.

It does seem to provide, w/ manageable recoil, everything a med-lg game hunter could want out to 400 yds.

... except a short-action and wokeness.

Stevens223: The wonderful 270 Winchester cartridge has NOT "fallen out of favor" with me - nor with any of my many Hunting partners/friends who actually use and continue to admire this caliber!
The last 7 Whitetailed Deer I have harvested were all taken with one shot from my Remington 700 Sendero in caliber 270 Winchester at extended ranges (out to 450 Lasered yards).
Over the years I have also taken Black Bear, Bull Elk, Blacktailed Deer, Mule Deer and Antelope with my various 270 Winchester chambered Rifles.
DO NOT be confused or influenced by any anti-270 Winchester blather (bullschit!)!
In fact cast a disparaging eye and tend to distrust ANY "nimrod" who even tries to discredit the 270 Winchester (especially the dickwads who call the 270 "gay"!)!
Long live the wonderful 270 Winchester.

The only problem with the .270 Win. is that it is now and always has been so unassailably good that no legitimate criticism can be mounted against it and only name calling remains. It's a fire joke. We all know different, even the Poobah. ;-{>8

Why is everything always shock-and-awe news to you?
Nearly everyone on this site pokes fun at the .270 with tongue-in-cheek.

You had to be the most unintuitive cop on the cot-damned planet.

Based on the rounds I’ve got hoarded for a 270, I should be shooting one for a while…..at everything.

I have my Rem. 700 ADL synthetic I bought for $300 in 1999. No reason to sell it. Have not shot anything with it since 2013 but will never sell it. I have a few bucks and a few bear with it. I will likely use it again for bear here in Wisconsin this fall.

The 270 Win carried on the back of writers skillful as JOC and others mentioned here gave us the hunting stories I grew up reading. The 270 is based on the 30-06 case. Any cartridge based on the '06 case can't rightly be called gay. It's the most ungay cartridge ever developed. That and the 375 H&H. They were developed with one thing mind. Deliver the goods while functioning reliably. Interestingly enough the 30-06 is the most powerful main battle rifle round ever handed to infantrymen in the world. Let's just say the 270 has good genetics

Oddly as I'm just getting into the 270win I came across some ballistic survey website that is telling me the 270win runs out of steam on game past 200yds. Seems I can never quite get it right. Oh well, at least there's plenty of bullets in have stored up for it on practice days.

That ballistic survey guy writes like he has been in on every kill this century but his cluelessness knows no bounds. Everything is very vague and ill-defined.

Don't think it has fallen out of favor just more options these days. Still capable at 97.

~ 100 whitetails with one. Been shooting it since 1994. Still my go to rifle.

Compare it ballistically to some of the new craze and it will surprise you.

There's always been fads. Some time ago it was magnums and high velocity. Now its fantasizing about shooting game at unrealistic distances (for most) with heavy high bc projectiles that have a poor maximum point blank range necessitating fiddling with your scope dials before you take a shot. Another current fad is ultralight rifles. If you stick to 130 or 140 grain projectiles that have a reasonable bc at 3000-3100 fps at reasonable hunting distances such as up to 350 yards, the .270 Win is hard to beat.

Agree: Regardless of cartridge, I have found that bullets between say 100 to 140 grains, with a BC of about .400 and MVs in the 2850-3000 range, work very well for my needs.

And, the 150gr. PSP factory loads, from a 22" Bbl., produce M2 ball ballistics.

The .270 Win. has fallen from favor just like big boobs did when Twiggy showed up. No-one told the folks that matter.

Fashion v. Style.

Perfect.
