Long range 270-08 AI

Just wondering if anyone out there has a heavy barrel 270-08 AI and what sort of groupings you are getting? I'm thinking of doing a 270 on a blown out Lapua 260 Remington case with a 30 degree shoulder for 500 to 1000 yard varmints, medium size game and targets.

That wouldn't make much sense.

For a 270 caliber, I think it would.

In my opinion, it would be a tremendous waste of money on the reamer and dies, when better results can be achieved with a standard 260.

When you start to factor in bullet selection, it makes a guy scratch his head and wonder....

I already have the dies, I already have the reamer, I've already done the same thing on a lightweight hunting rifle. The 270 caliber is an excellent choice for hunting applications, the situation is changing with high bc bullets. 270 on the same case should give better barrel life than 6.5 and less recoil than 7mm.

I believe Marshal competes with one, winmag had a thread recently on making a 270-308 that had a lot of good stuff in it. Making one is on my list of 270 to make!

I had a look at the thread, it is more about a 270-08. Mine is the 270 Redding, but I would use Lapua 260 cases than what I currently use which is military 308 cases.
