Your .270 Win with 150grs load should work just great, "if" you were a reloader even better. Stay in the bullets fpe for the size game you're hunting. Good luck.Hey Y'all,
I am wanting to purchase a great "big game" rifle. I have deer hunted in Georgia for the past 20 years and I am looking for another rifle to take to the mountains one day. I currently shoot a .270.
My father shoots a .308 and recently took a cow at 320 yards.
I really don't want to go with a big box brand of rifle. Ideally, I would like to buy from a company that stands behind their rifles and provides excellent customer support. I have had friends buy from Beretta, Winchester, etc and if they had any weapon problems, it took them 8 plus months to get their weapon back.
I'd like to keep the rifle under $2000. What caliber? Muzzle brake?
It seems like a lot of folks run some variation of the 300, but then I read a lot of posts that mention that caliber causing folks to develop bad habits and flinching.
Additionally, I need input on a scope that would handle the longer ranges without a problem. Do I need a scope with mil dot, BDC, etc? Turrets for range adjustments?
I am pretty green to all of this and honestly I am quite overwhelmed.
I appreciate your help!
