Re: 264 Win Mag VS 270 Whby
To the O.P., I don't think you can go wrong with either. I've had a 264 since I was 11. It was my first rifle and to this day is still my favorite. That said I am a little bias toward the 264. I have nothing against the 270wby but already having the 264, I never could justify getting a 270. You will get different answers to your question. Some based on factual differences between the two but most based on the fact that the guy who answered has one or the other and is going to tell you the one he has is better than the other. In my opinion, with the new offerings for the 270, differences in ballistics between the two will be minimal within their effective ranges. The difference in frontal area is only .013". A difference that the animal will surely never notice. If you enjoyed the rifle in 264 form, stay with it. If you want something different, go 270. If you really want something different try a 6.5/270wby. I've been entertaining that idea for no other reason than to be the only guy at the range that has one! To each their own... Good luck with your decision. You'll be happy either way you go.
