Default bought a 270

any experiences with the 270 and deer hunting. I hunted with a 30-30, but want more knock down power. Most shots are 50-75 yards. What's your experiences

You picked a great caliber.

It's a flat shooting rifle out to 300 yards and has enough knock down power to take down an elk.

I used a 270 before I decided to get into archery. I loved that rifle and still use it for coyotes and other varmits.

The only rifle I've hunted with for over 35years. Great bullet selection and will take anything in North America (Jack O'Connor). I really like the Hornady 140 grain Lt.Mag. BTSP

Thats what I use. Remington 7400 with 130 grains. It puts them down big time. I have had only 3 deer take another step in my 14 years of using it and 45 deer later. Great caliber.

Read some books and articles by Jack O'Connor - one of the finest, most dependable hunting calibers ever. I've killed nearly everything I've ever killed with that gun. I trust it with my life.

I have both the 30-30 and 270. Both are great for deer. Not sure at those distances the deer will know the difference.
Good luck with the new gun
