I agree, it's the bullets. Just never been any good long rangers for the 270 or the 8mm although both are good calibers. Killed both of them for the long range guys I guess. As the bullets are developed the guns will follow. I have shot a 270 wby for over 30 years and made some really long shots with it. Have 2-3 now. I haven't shot them in a few years because all the good bullets were popping out in other calibers. With the good bullets now they will come out of mothballs.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
