Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

If you had a 30-06 and won a 270 would u keep it?

As others have said, trade in the .270 for somthing else, an upgraded scope or a muzzleloader. You might be surprised how much you like muzzleloading. I picked one up for the extended season and now use it more than my .308.

Ball's in your court and no need to rush. If you can't get the wife out w/you at some point, using the .270 to supplement for an ML or some other necessity is a nice option.

Thumbs up Don't sell!

Keep it , you will never have enough rifles or pistols, You will always have a spare for when you go hunting for other game in other states. Set her up the way you want it, fun doing it. You won it , you saved $ 400 bucks on her already.Don't listen to the guy's that say sell. Some day you may have wanted that Ruger American. Besides Muzzle loaders are fun but that is another excuse you have to try one.

I'm gonna keep the 270 for a back up. Plus my son is 8 so only a couple more years and he will be hunting so ill have a rifle already for him. If the recoil's to much ill find some manage recoil ammo for him. Now to con the wife on why I NEED a muzzle loader.

Late to the topic but yes, I happen to like 270's. If you don't, sell/convert it to something else you do like. Important thing is you WON a gun and the money it's worth is going to be used for something firearms related that you like. And that's always a good thing.

Re-barrel the 270 to 280 or 30-06 if you don't want a 270.

If you start shooting the .270 you'll probably end of liking it better.
