Not to hijack the thread but anybody play around with a 270-300win? Kinda got the beginnings of an idea to play with one and the heavier 277 bullets coming out
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
