Anyway, if you are concerned about dragging your .270 along to hunt plains game. Load some good bullets and go hunting

Well we recommend the 270 as the minimum when clients are coming over to hunt plainsgame including bigger critters like wildebeest and kudu and I must say from the few that did bring their 270 all went well two of them the last year hunted with the 150gr win XP3 bullets and they worked like a charm. These new bullets brought new life to a lot of rifles that was considered inadequate in the last couple of years.
Frederik, I was forewarned before I left home to have GOOD bullets and the .270 would work fine.
After my experience in South Africa and now at home a well constructed bullet makes all the difference.
It should lead to some new confidence in SA for the PH's if someone shows up with a .270.
