Due to recent neck surgery I have to hang up my 300 win mag and go lighter, my requirement are white tail deer out to 600 yards, recoil cannot exceed a 280 Remington. I am torn between a Tikka T3 in 7mm08 or 270, I know the 7 would be accurate, but out of 4 different 270 Winchester remingtons between me and my brother we have never had one that would shoot better than 1" at 100 yards. I plan to single load the rounds in the chamber with Berger Hunting bullets, I know the 270 is faster but the 7 08 is usually more accurate with a high bullet BC. what do you guys think, the rifle will be a Tikka T3 either has a 22.5 inch barrel. Is the 270 just naturally less accurate since its based on the 30/06 vs. the 7mm08 being based on the 308?
