Re: 270 WSM Popularity

I shoot a Remington model 700xcr in 270wsm. I have a Burris Euro-Diamond 2.5x10x44mm with the Ballistic Plex retical. Been shooting factory Winchester 150gr. Power Points out of mine. Chronographed them at 3200fps out of my gun. Been real happy with the 270wsm. Have killed 6 mule deer with it. Hits them hard and puts them down fast.

Re: 270 WSM Popularity

I have a browning Abolt that loves the 150 grain berger vlds. It also shoots under 1 moa at 100 yards with winchester xp3's. I have taken elk at 875, 825 yards and many deer at over 500 yards. I killed a coyote at somewhere around 950 yards but didnt have a range finder just knowlege of the area where the dog was. I think the caliber is under rated and has a bad rep because of the "bigger is better" theory. IMHO it works and works well in the west!!
