    Between the two , I would recomend the 280 AI.

    Nothing wrong with the 270 WM except the cost of ammo, brass and choice of bullets.

    If the 280 is set up right , you can fire form the 280 ammo while hunting. (they are extremely
    accurate while fireforming) and then you can up the loads to near 7mm Mag velocities.

    The 280 uses a standard bolt face (Actions are easier/cheaper to find).

    They are good to 1000 yards on paper and 800 yards on dear size game.

    Just my opinion.

    consider 270wsm? handloads you can push to see good velocities.

    just mentioned it since you brought up 270 wby. mag.

    just a thought

    My choice of considering and leaning towards the 270 WM is velocities I plan on using a 130grn ttsx which would require higher velocities at longer ranges

    Thats the same bullet I'm using in my WinchesterShort Magnum. Its shooting 3255fps (out of a 24" barrel ) on average with no signs of pressure. I know a few here are pushing those pills even faster into the 3300+ range.

    If velocity is what you want in a 130 or 140grain bullet, go with the 7mm Ultra Mag or the 7 STW
    both will push a 140grain bullet over 3500 ft/sec.
