I don't have any Africa experience with the .270, but here in North America I have killed whitetail, mule deer, pronghorn, hogs and a ram with that awesome caliber...all DRT. I have witnessed other friends use the .270 on moose, elk and black bear with great success. I don't have mine anymore (like an idiot, I sold my Ruger No.1), but I would not feel the least bit handicapped on a PG hunt with one. I am currently considering trading my 7mm Rem Mag for a .270 or 7mm-08. As more hunters seem to be going for the magnums and short magnums, I find myself going the other way. My previous safari as well as my upcoming one in 2018 are for PG which is what interests me. As of now, I don't have any aspiration (or $) to hunt DG so I'm content with standard calibers!
