270, their both capable of exceptional accuracy

The 270 is flatter and can be very accurate.

The 308 is not as flat and fast but has the reputation for accuracy and because of bullet selection.
And can normally be loaded to shoot very accurately.

I would have to give the edge to the 270 with proper bullets and loads at longer ranges because
of velocity and ballistic coefficient.

Just an opinion based on having both and shooting both at 600+ yards.

Re: 270 vs 308

Thanks, for the replies! I have had both caliber's, in the past and now, I am considering which one to purchase first! It will be most likely the .270 and then later on the 308 (which I still have some ammo). I am also, trying to make my mind up on whether to get a Marlin x7 or the the Savage, both are in the $300 to $400 range!
