.270 Winchester | Chesapeake Pawn and Gun in Chesapeake Virginia
The .270 Winchester was designed somewhere in the 1920′s and was released by Winchester. The round was moderately popular for hunting medium to large game as its a bit more potent than the 30-30 and the 30-06. The 30-30 and the 30-06 are other popular rounds that while great for deer are a bit underpowered for larger game like elk and mule deer.
So what’s so special about the 270 Win? Power would be the quick answer. It hangs with the 30-30 and 30-06 until about the 250 yard mark as far as drop goes it then goes on to out-fly the 30-30, but the 30-06 beats it out. In regards to power this cartridge beats both the .30-30 and the 30-06. So the end result is a round that flies almost as well as the 30-06, better than the 30-30, and has much more of a punch. That’s a good round no matter how you look at it.
