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

Of the 3, I would choose 6.5-06.

If you add AI versions then I think the 280AI is the leader of the group.

I voted 280 as I am in sell mode now and wildcats like the 6.5-06 are difficult to sell. No one ever plans to get rid of one. We always feel we will shoot it out and rebarrel but plan for the worst and hope for the best.

    I voted 270 only because it's my favorite caliber, the first rifle I ever owned, and I've killed a lot of game with it. Plus, I own or have owned 5 custom 270s. I JUST put together my first 280 ever and it was a cake walk to find a load.

    HA HA HA! No it doesn't! All 3 listed, AND the 280 AI AND a 6.5-06 AI will all do the same thing to game, and that's kill it so long as the hunter does things right.

    +1. Shooter preference as opposed to killing effectiveness.
