Can the 270 take larger game useing Barns or Berger's? Or will it only leave a pin hole and hurt animal?
Definitely, although I'd pick the Barnes every time over the Berger for heavy game. I'd be more worried about the Berger NOT penetrating far enough, but the Barnes will be easily capable of taking moose or even a bit more in a .270 as long as you PLACE YOUR SHOTS WELL. I've found the tricky part is to get the Barnes to shoot accurately, but that's just my gun.
