Well Tyler, a couple of reasons. I had the brass here that I ordered for a 6.5/300 Dakota that I chickened out on
The brass looked really good and wanted to do something different and badazz with it. That pretty much narrowed it down to the 270 as there is already a 7 Dakota, although slighter smaller than the 300.
I still want to do a 6.5 Dakota project, but not sure if I want to do it off the 7 or 300 case yet. I want to see how the 270 performs with various powders and bullets before deciding how to go with the 6.5 Also want to see how the nitrided barrels hold up.
