    I'm proud owner of some 270's. 100 gr vaporize small animals when pushed out at over 3600 fps. The 140 and 150 spbt are good for anything in the lower 48. I even shoot 168 VLD's out of my target gun.

    I have found the 110, 115, and 120 HPBTs or SPBT are very good for limiting the South Dakota PDog problem.


    I like .277 because of pretty good BC with a good balance of foot pounds of energy and lack of recoil. MY 6X24 56mm with harris bypod has been all over the US
