Re: 270 WİN. question.??????

As l dont know much about powder and burning speeds and so on,l cant calculate the life of the barrel. I ll put it this way. l have shot about 500 rounds of federal clasics 150 grain SP. AND 300 rounds of federal clasics 175 grains SP. SO HOW MANY MORE BULLETS WILL L BE ABLE TO SEND DOWN RANGE TO 550 METERS TO KILL IBEX. i dont compete. just hunting. need to hit the vitals. any estimates?

    Hard to say... I burned out my 7mm barrel in about 1000-1100 rounds. Most of those were max or close to max handloads.

    A 270 is enough gun! Less recoil flat shooting 400 yard gun with factory ammo. My first Elk was with a 270, have used 7mm and 300 also. In Wyoming a big game caliber has to be a 243 or larger, same for Colorado. In Utah and Texas it is any center fire cartridge. Shot placement is important no matter the caliber. I always say the gun is important but buy the best optics you can afford to go on it. My thoughts.
