Have to go with the 270 also. I started to learn about rifle rounds in the early '70's and it was always talked about.


WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO TRAP!

according to my nosler book a 7mm mag shooting a 175 grain partition with a 3000 fps muzzle velocity, zeroed at 200 yards will drop 37.3 inches at 500. It will have 1795 ft pounds of energy. The win mag shooting a 200 grain partition at 3000fps will drop 38.3 inchs with 1941 foot pounds of energy.

Looks to me like there aint ten cents difference...... except i already own a 300 win mag

many of us were stuck with shotgun only zones , no rifles for deer season

as a "safety" thing because slugs don't go far

which is sort of a lie , slugs still go far not as far as a rifle but way further than most people figured , they assumed because they couldn't hit a 55 gallon drum with it at 130 yards they were in the dirt by 150 which wasn't really true.

it actually got safer when Green county went rifle , the sheriffs calls for cars trucks , farm equipment and outbuildings struck by projectiles went way down , because people could then hit a 150yard deer rather than try and artillery the foster slugs in

20ga 44cal bullet in a sabot makes a 20ga shotgun perform almost to 45-70 levels

I remember the 270 and O'Conner and I think Skelton or maybe Cooper going at it over .270 vs 30-06. But the big deal to me was Roy Weatherby's .270 Wby, when he rounded those shoulders giving more case capacity that was the be all end all. Just my 2 cents.

7mm rem mag was the hot thing everyone in rifle zones I guess that would have been the mo-powah mo-bettah round of the late 80s early 90s even tough it was developed well before that

most people who weren't buying those were just using 30-06 cause it worked and was everywhere

sort of the "3" were a 22lr, a 30-06 and 12ga and go hunt everything in WI

Whats wrong with rifled slug barrels? Unless you lived in a deer rifle state, rifled slug barrels were a godsend for people trying to get some actual accuracy for anyrhing past point blank range.

Nuttn wrong at all?
Rifled slug barrels changed things big time!

yup I have a cousin who shoots those and then he starts counting slugs cost him one year his scope was off cause he didn't want to burn the 3 dollar a peice slugs and the scope hand't moved in 3 years they are a serios game changer over the foster slugs.

big difference is I don't think I ever heard a hey how do you know someone shot their deer with a sabot slug! just wait they will tell you.

6.5 creedmore seems to hold that popularity of talking about it more than most any other cartridge I ever heard of.

Yeh it hurts when a scope goes bad shooting those SSTs... We just had a scope go out. My dad burned two or three boxes before figuring the scope went out.

When I look at the 6.5 numbers I dont see where its any better than a lot of other cartridges. I believe now, ( i didnt when I was young) that the primary purpose of outdoor publications is to sell stuff. The more they can sell the more they can charge for ads and ads disguised as articles.

In order to keep gun sales up gun manufacturers need new stuff. It doesn't have to be better than their "old" offerings it just needs magazine articles to sell it.

I bought a 270 cause Jack O Conner kept pointing out how much it out performed the 30-06. I am a little more experienced now and as great a cartridge as the 270 is the stuff I shoot with it isnt any deader than stuff shot with my old 06.

Yep, Remington Model 700 BDL .270 Win. for deer and elk. Then I got a Sako Forester .220 swift for varmints. Shot a lot of deer with the swift too.
