I have both in a Rem 700 I would have to vote 7mm Mag had mine since I was 16 can not tell the difference with recoil. Seems like the dead in tracks happens more often with the 7mm than the 270. You don't have to be Rambo to shoot either one of them.Some people are just more sensitive than others.

I'll vote for the 270. Just my opinion though.

You might just as well asked if you prefer blondes or brunettes. A man (or woman if you want to be pc) can never have too many guns. The 7 mag is a belted magnum and will take anything in North America except for may-be the big bears but somewhat of an overkill for deer in this part of the country. The 270 is a whitetail gun and other thin skinned game. People always want one gun to do everything. Impossible. Get them both. I have a 270, 300 and a 338. Those cover most but not everything. That's what I tell my wife anyway.

I have a 270. And I HAD a 300 RUM. No need for the 300 unless you isn't have lots on money to spend on ammo. And an ice pack for your shoulder

no bear is walking away from a 7mag if you can shoot it.either one will kill anything in north america, the only thing to consider is matching your bullet for the game.hell i would be confident with a 243 with nosler partion on any animal in north america

I have a 270 also, and shoot a 130gr bullet. I want to know your secrete to how you have it dead on at 300 yrds, with it shooting a inch high at 100 yrds. If that is what you meant ! Mine sure want do that. I have mine zero in at 300 yrds also, and it is like 3 1/2 inches high at 100. I shot it at both distances to, so I know for sure !
