Hmmm maybe I should clearify myself some....Im goin to find a cheap remington 700 to steal the action....if I find a SA low enough Im gonna go .308 but if all I can find is a LA then wanted to know if the .270 would work for 1k target shooting...
No matter which action I go with we (ex coworker who does LR shooting) are gonna order a Shilen semi bull barrel and other toys for it.
Reason I ask about the .270 is I will be reloading the ammo and since thats what we currently hunt with I can easily reload hunting rounds for the wifes rifle using same components which be easier to just buy in bulk.
Our current rifles are Mossberg atr 100's so no option of upgrading mine into a 1k gun.
I seen at midwayusa that some of the nosler ballistic tip 150g are .496 BC and SD .279 where a .308 168gr is .490 and SD .253
Wanting to stay .270 in LA rifle if a SA isnt available at time to get rdy for build just to make things simpler on all I have to purchase for reloading
Also the 1k target shooting will be strictly for fun and enjoy....And ya never know if on that once in a lifetime hunting trip out west when that Bull elk or muley might be on the opposite ridge
