When I started on this site I was looking to build the ultimate hybrid long range hunting rifle because what I had was a 270 WSM Tikka T3 lite mounted with a huskemaw
and bedded etc. When I say Hybrid I meen take elk at 1000 yrd. I did the research and spent alot of money beacuse the ballistics were there !
It just wasnt going to work with a "clip" style gun. i was working on handloads and Berger bulluts that like to be seated beyond the length of my clip would function and allow me to feed. So theres one answer, allow your gun room for improvement! dont by clip style"not going to lie I love my Tikka and was sad when I was told the facts as well.
Other than that if you can get a bigger grain bullet to work for you I have always believed in the 270 WSM and look forward to your progress if you share with us!
feel free to msg me if anyone had questions about 270 WSM.
