Now that bullet mfg's have started to provide higher BC bullets for the .270, why wouldn't this stack up with longer barrel slower powder and so on? It seems like the .270 is swept under rug but I am rethinking a build with a longer barrel (26" min) to get most out of the new higher BC bullets like the Hornady 145 ELDX, Sierra 140 Gamechanger, 150 Nosler LRAB. Why not? It will still have digestible recoil even with the heavier bullets. Heck, with blasphemy (the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence to a diety, or sacred things, or toward something considered sacred) ringing in my ears, maybe even stay with the 6.5's? I am curious if anyone has built a .270 with this in mind? The easy availability of brass, wealth of bullets and wide range of powder selection, it has my interest. I know what the .270WSM can do BUT the complete ease of obtaining brass etc seems to be intriguing.
