I agree mate the 270 won't do anything the 280 or 06 won't do a bit better.
If it wasn't for Jack O'Connor jamming it down our throats I don't think it would be where it is today. If it wasn't for a bucket full of advertising the 270, 243 and a few others may have died at birth.
Cheers mate Bob
That’s probably true for any cartridge. I love the 270 Win. The 6.5 Creedmoor is especially a success due to marketing. I own and love it also. In Africa I’ve primarily used a 300 WBY & 375 H&H. However, I plan on taking my beloved 30-06 on my next trip. If it was strictly legal, I’d take one of my 270’s. Instead. I’m a gun caliber freak and personally own many. If I could only own one for plains game sized game. it would definitely be a 270 or good old 30-06.
