Hello, This is my first post, and i am glad to be on the forums. Right now i own a 17HMR, but i would like to do some longer range shooting, where I live I will be shooting at max about 500 yards. I would like to get a Remington 700 chambered in .270 Win, but the Remington 700s' that i have seen on their site that are in .270 have normal field barrels, but I would like to get a rifle that has a nice bull barrel on it. Should I consider switching to .308? Most of my shooting is target shooting, but I want the round to be able to take deer out to 400 yards without a problem. I was seriously considering getting a Savage 11/111 in .270 but read a discussion about a rifle of the same model in .300 that was sour, and people saying that as of late Savage has been lowering their standards. Bottom line is I want as much accuracy from whatever rifle I get.
