A friend is gonna help me build a 1k target/hunting rifle mostly likely a .308. But in case I cant find a M700 in SA would a .270 be ok for say 500 yard deer hunting and 1k target shooting build? I dont want a magnum round and if the LA is a 270 I can reload for both my build rifle and the .270 my wife hunts with. I currently shoot deer on a regular basis out to 300 yards since I hunt agro fields here in florida. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am totally new to building and also LR target shooting.
