I am in need of some input on the 270 wsm as a viable LR hunting round. I would use it primarily to hunt heavy bodied deer and elk. Shooting distance is only limited by my skill and the effective range of the rifle, I have very good conditions for LR shooting. I have ran some balistics tables on the 270 wsm with Berger 140 VLD and it seems like a reasonable choice out to 800yds possibly to 1000yds. I can buy a Savage 12fvss in 270 wsm and it seems like a good combo as well as being easy on the wallet. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
