Re: Savage switch barrel tips?
Just go with 270Win. It's an awsome elk getter, even with 130gr bullets. You could just do different loads for different aplications.
I'm not against the switch barrel idea, go with detacable box magazines that are set up for the different cartriges. I would think a good center feed set up would have the least problems. I would use a second bolt for the other cal.
I use 300wm for all big game. I think the 270 my cousin uses makes bigger holes. I didn't actually use a tape measure, when the .300 180 SPBT Hornady has quarter size exit hole and the .270 130 GS Speer has a soda can sized exit hole there's an obvious difference.
