Go with a 6.5, 7 or 30 caliber. A 6.5x47 or 280 would be a much better choice.
Years ago I would have to agree with BH, But now days there are lots of good bullets
for .277 cal. I have listed a few that will work at long range.
150 grain ballistic Tip
150 grain burger
150 grain inter-bond
150 grain SST
All of these bullets are boat tails and have high BCs.
There is also some very good 140 grain bullets that are match grade.
I used a 270 for 600 yard matches and beat lots of 30 calibers with it before all of these good
bullets were available. (I use a 150 grain game king from Sierra).
With the advent of the 270 WSM and the 6.8 SPC .277 bullets have come along way.
Some people are wild catting the 270 to 270 AI and increasing it 100 to 150 ft/sec with the 150 grain
bullets and bringing the 270 up a noch
