Re: 270 ai

In his book,Ackley states that since the orignal .270 is overbore capacity,little impprovement can be expected although some shooters say it is a fair cartridge for bullets heavier than 150 gr.Due to its relative inefficiency, it is not recommended.

Re: 270 ai

Ackley didn't have near the selection in propellant and projectiles that we have today! Its a brave new world, out there. Only drawback I see to the .270 is variety of bullets, other calibers a have wider selection. Seems the .280AI would be a better choice. just my 2 cents

+1

Any thing the 270 AI will do the 280 AI will do better.

If you are wanting something different you might look at the 6.5/280 AI for a great selection
of bullets compared to the 270.

just something to think about.
