Oh yeah, FYI, Browning chrome/moly/ loves rust like no other.

You're a good son. I picked up a Sako A7 270wsm last year. Love the caliber for the reasons stated by winmag.

Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in 270 WSM here, one of the nicest guns on the market in my opinion.

Re: 300wsm or 270wsm

I have several 300 wsm the 150 grain BST or TTSX is flatter than the 270 wsm and does not kick much more than the 140 gr 270 wsm. I have one scope zeroed for 150 bst for deer/antelope/goats and the 180 for the bear/elk/moose.
300 wsm is faster, flatter, hits harder and good to any reasonable range one should be shooting.

What powders are you using in the 300WSM, and at what velocity?

Re: 300wsm or 270wsm

For the 300WSM;
RL-17 & a 180 Accubond gets close to 3100 fps.
RL-19 & a 180 gets close, but a touch less velocity than 17.
H-4350 is a performer too.

I'm told that IMR-7828ssc is a solid performer with 200 grain Accubonds.

For the 270WSM,
If your launching 140 Accubonds, look no further than RL-19. It has been the best performer in all three 270WSM's I load for, & countless others on this forum. 3100 fps is Easily attainable in most rifles.
If your looking at launching the Matrix bullets, or the new Bergers, Magpro, Retumbo, & even H-1000 have been noted for velocity.
