This thread is hilarious. Give a man a .223, that can hit where he aims, and a .223 is superior.

I agree. I have hunted with a .243 all my life. I also have a .270 I bought a few years ago. Both are great calibers and I have plenty of confidence in both.

I will say between the .270 and the 7mag I would shoot the .270 a lot more at the range. Shooting more is going to lead to better accuracy. And accuracy is what you are looking for, not deciding if you will need a knife for field dressing.

Ive used the 308 and the 243 and the 270....
I rank them in order 270,308,243.
i dont like the too light of a load bullet in the 243.
I would use the 308 and 270 interchangeably without argument.

shew, talk about getting off the topic!,.. .270 would be your better round, the guns' lighter, the shells are plentyful. and you can find NICE guns worth the money.

I have hunted with both and didnt see any difference between the two as far as the animals reaction to being hit. A good hit is a good hit.

I have to disagree that the 7mm mag can compensate. .007" in diameter difference is not going to do much if anything more than what a 270 can do. A poor shot is a poor shot weather you are shooting a 243 or a 338 win mag.

You have to practice some guys , ya have to hit them to drop them.
