Next year the 270 will be the primary...


Cartridges are more alike than different.
If Montana had an army the 270 Win would be standard issue.
The 308 Win; it kicks a little and kills a lot.

Brad, I particularly like that top photo. Tells a bit about the good old .30-06 in a modern, lightweight package.

Is that the 6x Leupold?

Yup, 6x36LR.

But the outcome would have been no different with the 270.

Seriously, to the OP. My preferred method of taking game is a 60# Schafer Silvertip 3 piece takedown recurve.

When I don't want to play with my food, its a thoroughly beat up Kimber Montana in 308 with a 2-7x33 VXII with LR duplex in Talley LWs

Not often one sees a can of Monster on the bench is it... wink

Also Dan, do you normally use a led sled thingy bench rest like that or do you use a traditional front rest and bunny bag in the rear?

And one last Q, what bullets out of your 308 Mt have you used to take elk?

Thx
Dober

I can't complain too much about the way the little GAP .260 worked this past season......I'm pacing the floor, waiting for black bear season to open so I can add to the list.

Mathews bow mostly for elk and Mule deer, but when I carry the boom sticks my Rem Ti in 30-06 is my go too. It wears a Leupold VX-II 3x9. I have other rifles but hard to not like a 6-lb 30-06.


Good Shooting!

Ran into a friend at the local gun shop yesterday and he was stoked, his lab put the fang to a snow goph yesterday. Tough to beat life in the snow goph fields... cool

your choice in weapons for hunting


I don't use a weapon to hunt.

I use a firearm.

Wasn't my permit, it was my younger brother who got lucky. I was laying right at his side when he took the ram using my .260.
