If you want to upgrade from the 270 get a 30.06

Judging by the lesser expensive ammo, it's only $2-3 bucks cheaper. Not that much difference. But the more expensive stuff, like Federal, 7mm ammo is a better price.

I wouldn't call it an upgrade. 270 WIN is one of the greatest centerfire hunting calibers of all time. Any of the 300 magnums will kill deer dead, but they are venison destroyers and overkill on whitetail deer in my opinion. I have a 300 Wby Mag for the elk hunt that I'm planning to do in the next couple of years. If I had to choose between 300 WIN Mag and 300 WSM I would get a 300 WIN Mag. If you want something new for deer just for the sake of having something new then I would downsize to a 257 Roberts or 257 Wby Mag or 25-06. Those are all pretty cool deer cailbers.
