Re: Long range 270-08 AI

sounds sweet! There WILL be a time when the .277 cal has just as efficient bullets as 6.5 or 7mm, and until then we are talking about very little difference in b.c and a little boost in speed over the .260 and better barrel life.
would I do one over a .260 or 7-08?... nope, but there is different strokes for different folks. And that sound like a sweet little stroke!

    Am I the only one with little to no love for the .277?

    Nah ill forgive him. as if I have any say
    He an east coast guy so he probably likes the quarter bore.
    Different tendencies everywhere you go.

    I could care less if he likes Winnie's or not.
    I love mine, & that's no secret, but I don't think it's the end all best action ever. It's just my preferred action.

    OP,
    That'd be a fun round to toy with. I'm an admitted 270 freak, so I'm bias, but I think it would be great for your intended purpose.
    If a guy already hand loads, & has the tools & components, I don't see the draw back to playing with wildcats. Kinda like a fun continuous experiment in a way.
    Go for it!

    You might me a closet .277 lover. After all, the thread is titled Long Range 270-08 AI, and you were curious enough to have a look at it.
