Re: 270 winchester

thanks for the comments and load info.
this gun will be used for culling many deer in mexico,and javelinas from the ranch. i will use my 6.5wby for my primary go to gun. but to shoot and help manage the ranch i will mainly be using the 270 so the barrel will last alot longer in the 6.5wby

Re: 270 winchester

I got most of my experience finding out what calibers and bullets work best on WT deer doing much the same thing in NC on a big farm for control purposes. My buddy did it for 25 years and I helped for 15 of those years. We took 100 deer a year. You don't need the high price bonded, match, VLD etc. bullets. I would start with the 130 gr Sierra and you will probably find that you don't need or want to try anything else.
