Re: 270 wsm
I have two of them. I use 150 grain sst's reloads and 150 grain remington accutips factory loads. The one I use for hunting was used this year to mule kill deer at 200, 300, and 570. All in the vitals. One went 20 yards (the 300 yard shot), the other two dropped dead. All pass throughs, even the 570. Lots of damage. At my elevation, there's still 1000+ ft/lbs left at 1000 yards. I use a bushnell yardage pro rangefinding scope. It ranges out to 750 consistantly. That's my practical limit for shooting mule deer with this gun. If I wanted to got farther than that, I'd look at another caliber like a 7mm RUM, 300 RUM, 7mm Allen Mag, 338 AX, 338 edge, etc.
