7mm 175gr FMJ sounds more ideal...than 150gr 270 partitions...

I think I'd either want a very trusting and PH backing me up closely...or a gun barer nearby with something big...

I hear ya about always wanting to take something with a certain caliber, for me I really want to take a buff with a .458-500gr bullet.

I know they make 160gr bullets for the 270, maybe a 160gr solid? Of course I guess it would depend on what the dangerous game was...cape buff/elephant, vs. lion/leopard, etc...?
