Why doesn\'t anyone talk about 270 Win?

I am amazed by this. So far I have seen people talk about 6mm, various 25s, a bunch of 6.5s and 7mm, 30s all over the place, but no 270s.

What is up with this?

Isn't the 270 Win a great long range hunting caliber?

Very few good bullets for the .277 shooters.

Yup,

I agree, I'd love to see more "good" bullets for the .277. cause I bet I could dream up a real neat Sheep Hunting Rifle for the 270WSM...

Heard some good things about the Scirrocos from Swift in this caliber. Don't have a .270 but the 150 gr 7mm and 180 .30's have worked very well. Perhaps the Nosler/Hornady bonded bullets will add to our selection. I note that Nosler seems to be playing to the LR crowd with their heavier weights.

I agree 100%. My first high power rifle was a 270 win. Have had a bunch of other cals but always went back to the 270. I am on my my third one in 17 years. I have a post on sst bullet aimed at the 270. Seams like there are a few good bullets to chose from. Blistic Tip, Scirroco, MK, SST. For a factory rifle the 270 tops my list.

Re: Why doesn\'t anyone talk about 270 Win?

Your view on "no good bullets" out may change soon. I use 135 grain SMK's right now, what wrong with this bullet? Nosler and hornady are coming out with the accudong (I mean accubond--I had to leave that typo because it sounded so funny!) and interbond, respectively. The 130 grain scirocco is awesome along with the SST. What do you guys want??
