270 Winchester

 The 270 Winchester is based on the more popular 30/06 cartridge case necked down to .277" caliber. Winchester began producing the 270 Winchester in 1923. Although the 270 Winchester was in production in 1923 it was not officially announced until the introduction of their model 54 rifle chambered in their 270 Winchester cartridge in 1925, later it would be chambered in their famous featherweight model 70 bolt action rifle.

The 270 Winchester is a great dual purpose cartridge it can be used for varmints sending a 110 grain bullet out the muzzle at 3,200 feet per second or it can be used as a big game cartridge sending 140 grain bullets out the muzzle at speeds of 3,000 feet per second with sufficient power out to the 400 yard mark for deer, elk and even moose size animals.

 While much has been written about the 270 Winchester cartridge it truly is a great North American, big game cartridge. If you were looking to buy a new rifle just to hunt in North America and you were going to hunt white-tailed deer for the most part the 270 Winchester offers plenty of range and energy for that. If you were going to hunt elk and moose some of the time, well the 270 Winchester offers enough bullet weight and energy for that also.

 The 270 Winchester with the power it offers down range will recoil somewhat to the shooters shoulder with heavier bullets in the 150 grain range but is still tolerable to shoot. If the recoil bothers you to much just find a quality gunsmith in your area and have a recoil pad installed on your rifle.
