Oh ok thanxs but Shatodavis do they kick??And will that 270 WSM take down elk and moose
Recoil is very subjective. The 270 WSM isn't bad IMHO, heck my boy shot it when he was a 13 yo stick figure. The 300 wsm with 200 gr. pills will rock you back. Put a Sims recoil pad on them and they tame down a lot.
Will the 270 WSM take down an elk? YES WITH OUT A DOUBT!!! especially with 150 gr bullets the 270 wsm is quite capable of killing elk. It wouldn't be my first choice though. Moose? YES, they are actually easier to take down than elk.
As others have said you can do basically the same thing with older/ non "magnum" chamberings. The 30-06 is 100 years old and still hard to top. The 270 win is with out a doubt one of the best ever. Heck, a 308 or 7mm-08 will do the job 90% of the time with considerably less recoil.
There are so many excellent chamberings to choose from. I don't think you would go wrong with either the 270 or 300 WSM's but if your still undecided. If you're looking for a deer rifle consider the 25-06. If elk and moose are on the agenda I would suggest a 7mm mag or larger... ie 300 win, 300 WSm, 338...
