I dont ever remember feeling the recoil of any gun I ever shot when shooting at game. Just at the range. I have shot many animals with different cal.s any where from a 375H&H to a .22lr

I've got a 270 Winchester that I like , I have hunted with the 270 since around 1976 or maybe before as my rifle is a Bicentenial Ruger 1776-1976 . I like the rifle and the cartridge but the 7MM Remington Magnum cartridge is a fine one too. For that matter the 280 Remington is good also, as they are all close in performance.

go with the 270 unless you need to shoot a "magnum" to prove your manlihood.


geez


nothing wrong with a magnum cartridge

270 is well suited for hunting in tn

if you hand load a 7 saum is a much better version of a 7 mag way more efficient

it is all personal prefrence

i hunt with a 270 and 7 saum

killed deer with several calibers
308
300 rum with a 208 amax @ 3313 fps and @ 15 yds 5028 fpe
(over kill ) but deadly
30 30
and a lowly 357 mag pistol with 500 fpe at muz 1160 fps with a 180 gn sjhp


ammo cheaper for 270

either will kill deer all day long cant go wrong either way


I have both and like both. I can get 3000 FPS with a 175 grain bullet out of my 7mm's with a 24" barrel. You won't see the load in a manual, but it is safe in my guns.
The 270 WSM outperforms about all chamberings hands down, even the 300 wsm. I like it the best.

270 FOR EAST TN.
7 REM MAG FOR OUT WEST 3OO-400 YARDS SHOTS.
(I HAVE MISSED ALL BUT ONE 300 YARD SHOT IN WYOMING)
BUT THAT ONE WAS FOR THE TEXT BOOKS. WALKING PRONGHORN AND DROPPED HIM IN HIS TRACKS.
MORE LUCK THAN SHOOTER SKILL.
MOST ON MY DEER HAVE BEEN HARVESTED WITH MY OLD WINCHESTER 94
LESS THAN 75 YARD WITH IRON SIGHTS. BUT I MUST ADMIT THE EYES AREN'T WHAT THEY UESD TO BE. AND I MUST GO TO A SCOPE THIS YEAR.

270 ammo is CHEAPER and most of the other posts show the other stats. I'm a tight wad and will always choose the most bang for the buck in everything I buy. \:D

Well 30/30 and 30-06 are cheaper still that is why I still shoot my old guns some still when I can get to the woods.

I shoot a 270. Never have shot a 7 mag. I did see a 7 mag deer at the processor once that had a softball size (or larger) exit wound from bullet fragmentation.
