Re: Hey Guys Help the Newbie out!!!
I like the 270, I would like to see some better bullets. Right now Berger is your best option for that caliber. Hornady's GMX would be my next choice. I have to say though, you get a 130grn bullet moving fast enough, your BC (Balistic Coefficient) will be extended. My brother and his son settled on a 270WSM for his first rifle. I know we are going down in caliber, but the 260 and 7mm-08 are also very good choices for a long range trainer and killer. 6.5-284 is a choice caliber in the Best of the West web site. It is also a caliber stomping .308's in competition LR target.
