I have never shot the 270wsm but have killed many animals with the 270 win. The most impressive was a bull elk at 410 yards, I have taken everything from coyote, wild hogs, whitetail and elk. Had I not purchased a 375 H&H, I would have taken it to Africa for plains game. I would have to vote 270 win. I would agree that the 270wsm solved a non existent problem.
