I like the 270 and the 30-06 but the 280 dose stand out as much as the others. lets say you see a very very large buck at 500 yards and you have a choice out of these 3 witch one would you choose.

if I had a very large buck at 500 it would be my 3006 just cause I love my 06 second would be the 280 but it would be 200gr. Sierra gamekings at about 2650fps it would bust the crap out it

I have three 270s, two 30.06s, and one 280. I would use whichever one I had with me on that hunt. They will all do the identical job once the bullet hits the vitals.

If you really want me to throw in my order of preference, keep this in mind, it has nothing to do with the caliber or my particular non-factory rifles, but the loads I have that are most accurate in these rifles and which shoots the best.

1. my latest 270 with 150 Berger VLD, H4831SC, 210M primer, WW brass, 3050fps
2. 280 150 NBT, 2750fps, Norma brass, 210M primer, VV powder can't remember which right now
3 30.06 with 180 NAB.

I chose them in that order because the 270 shoots the 150 VLD at < 1/2 MOA and this is the best load in that rifle and the best of those 3 listed.

280 without a doubt. Used mine for 4 years now. killed bull elk and muleys. All three are great calibers.

I have a factory 270 browning bar and a custom 280 AI so I would choose the 280 AI.

.280 AI with Berger 168 VLD's and a vitals shot would be devastating.

I also have a .30-06 AI shooting Berger 185 VLD's and it it should be a sub-1K monster pushing hot loads with 7828 SSC and a Federal 210M primers.
