Well guys I decided to go with a 270 instead of a 308. And I'm working on getting a scope for it I'm going to go with a vortex viper HS L . But I have a question can somebody maybe point me in the right direction of a good bullet and load to shoot it will be out of a remington 700 sps with 24" standard barrel. I believe it is a 1-10 twist. Another question is about how far do you thing I can ethically kill a whitetail with this round? I doubt I will get the opportunity often to shoot bast 600 at a deer but the occasional coyote may fall victim if the need arises so it will be sighted to about 800.I Also want to think everyone who commented on my last thread I really appreciate the help guys.

Since life gets in the way of getting back to the computer, I haven't posted in a while but being an avid 270 shooter (along with WAY too many other calibers), I have learned a basic thing: Every rifle (that I possess) will like a particular bullet and powder more than another (that's why the reloading shed has 5 different bullet manufacturers represented, not mentioning weights and configurations). The only way is to do exactly as suggested; SHOOT! And shoot a lot!
