Only after the 270 wsm barrel is warn out would it be worth it.

Go to JBM - Calculations - Trajectory run the number and see for yourself. 1800 FPS is sometimes considered minimum velocity for consistent expansion.

I agree if you know where your bullet is at all yardages the the 270 will do all you need.
You didn't say what rifle you have but if you join us Savage shooters all you would need to do is buy a 300 wsm barrel and switch to what caliber you want to shoot.

I shoot a tikka, and from the info ive gathered only a barrel swap would be needed for me as well.
