We have a team of 270 fans over here. I got my friend into hunting and he settled on a Tikka T3 in 270 and a Leupold VX3. It's such an accurate system, he thinks he's cheating for such a novice. My first new rifle was a Win 70 in 270 and we quickly started making our own history together. I got my wife, a natural born killer, a stainless Ruger in 270 and have cooked up a GMX load that it shoots incredibly. Folks may have seen this pic in other threads. Excellent ballistics all the way around.
