Re: Poll- 270 win, 280 Rem or 6.5-06

i just cant belive the 270 is beating the 280 in this pole it has nothing on the 280 and i think the 6.5-06 beats it out just for bullet bc.

but out of the three i would do the 280

    I have owned all three and voted for the 6.5 mostly due to the superb ballistics and terminal performance of the Berger Hunting 140 VLD's. Not a whole lot of difference between the 6.5x06 and 6.5x284 but I'm partial to 6.5x284 because of the superb accuracy I have been able to achieve from multiple rifles.

    Out of these three, 6.5-06 gets my vote. Throw in the 280AI and it gets a little more tricky. If you're targeting elk 280 it is. If you're targeting deer only then no question, 6.5 is the way to go.

    I am leaning 6.5-06 and then maybe top it off with the 140 bergers.
