silver, a loopy 4x12 is the same size and weight as a loopy 3x9x40, its got AO and can be had with targets turrets which move POI .192 MOA per click.
My farthest deer kill with a 270 win was 606 yards, I was young, I got lucky, but it lit a fire in me that I hope never goes out.

Chopaka, what powder are you using behind the 160gr Nosler?
I've only loaded 150 gr Sierra game king. The accuracy is acceptable @ .625 to .75 for two 3 shot groups.
Will hunt it next month in north MO for the first time.

2x7x33 dont underscope it! Minium 3x9 Youll regret 7X when you need 9X and when you dont just turn it down a bit. I had a 2x7 on an -06 hated it when I wanted strech a lil.

I'll keep that in mind about the 2-7, I was just noticing they were lighter than a 3-9. I was surfingthe Hornady site and got comparison ballistics for 270win light mag ammo vs my 7mmRemMag heavymag ammo. Except for the energy at 200-300-400-500 yrds there aint a lot of diff inthe flight paths. And my 270 is wayyy lighter than my 7RemMag. I bought a case of 270 btsp ammo from Cabelas, I guess after the season I'll work onthe 270 and fine tune it in or put my new Nikon 3-9x40BDC scope on it(currently on my 7mag). I guess what I seek is a lighter rifle for slugging around these hills.

I decided to do the right thing and give the 270 to my oldest daughter who elk hunts with me. I'm going to get the lop cut to her size and she can enjoy the rifle.

I guess lighter aint everything. I slugged around an old 264Win for about 20 yrs, and now am totally happy with this Win Mod 70 7RemMag I bought. Meanwhile I stuck a 4-12x40AO on it this morn, I just like the gun too much to use any other for western big game hunting.

I agree on the prefernce area since I run a 8x32x56 with 30mm tube! i love this scope for long ranges and sage rats out to 400yards. The nice thing of prefernces is it allows us all to be differnt and learn from others.
