    i have a 257 weatherby that shoots 110 grn accubound at about 3450fps. according to the barnes reloader book I can shoot my 270 wsm in 110 grn accubound at about 3700 fps. I know my weatherby is good on antelope and deer but would my 270 shooting the same grain bullet be just as good on deer and antelope.
    thanks for any help

    My 12 year old shoots the 270 wsm with a 110 ttsx Barnes. I haven't seen a goat or a deer get up let alone take another step after that 110 ttsx slaps them with a good dose of copper. You will certainly have no trouble killing goats or deer with a 110 bullet. As long as you shot placement is adequate, it's food in the freezer.
