264 Win Mag VS 270 Whby

I have a 264 wm & was thinking of building something else i have a ss rem long mag action sitting here doing nothing. Some guys i know shoot 270 whby's and tell me thats what I should build will i gain anything over the 264 to justify building a 270 whby ? Any thoughts ?

In my opinion, not really much difference in these two rounds. One won't do anything the other won't do. Except maybe at very long range the 264 with the higher BC bullets might have a slight advantage.

264 has superior bullets when it comes to BC

What about the new 165 grain matrix bullets for the .277! I think the BC's in the low 7's

The Matrix 165 gr bullet has a BC of .738. Ask BigNGreen how they work. If you build the rifle for this type of bullet You will get some gains. Might want to look at the .28 caliber family for even bigger gains. Bruce
