BirdDog; I have a Browning A-bolt Com Stalker 270 wsm & I can tell you also it is an accurate killing machine for sure. Plus a joy to shoot with that much horse power. I like the 130 gr pills best for it on deer. Dirt Rolls... IMO the (all around) best of the WSM'S. bang 4 your Buck.

I've had mine for 5 years and agree with all the above. Furthest I got to stretch its legs was lasered 373 deer was DRT.

For those of you shooting this caliber, BrassmanBrass.com has some once-fired stuff on sale. I've done business with them for quite awhile, good folks. Seems like a lot of 270 also.

i traded for a browning a bolt stainless hunter this year in 300wsm while looking for a 270wsm and i was a bit worried about the recoil, but having shot a 300win mag before i was shocked how light this a bolt kicks, i love mine so far and im sure the 270wsm would be awesome as well! i ended up with enough shells in the trade to last me a few seaseons but i tend to not shoot my deer rifles enough to really worry about ammo cost on them. so i tend to gravitate toward what i like vs the most econimical for deer guns as they probaly wont see 100 rnds a year and i dont hadload as of yet

With this ammo shortage I'm glade I'm pretty fit for components. Last year I bought quite a few of the 130gr discontiuned Speer Hot Cores for sheiets and grins shooting. I may have to do some phone book bullet tests with those for hunting backups?

BirdDog,
The only concern with the 270 I would have would be the range 400>600 overall though a good choice (more to do with optics then caliber). I set up a Weatherby 300 WSM w Leupold 4.5-14x50 side focus and CDS for the same range. Not sure which scope you have but most can have the CDS add at the factory (under $100.00) It is WELL worth adding for the ranges your after. 0 it at 200 yards and just turn the dial to your game range. AND practice, practice, practice. Good luck!

I love the 270 wsm. I have an beat up Model 70 with crap glass and factory trigger. It has killed everything I have rounded into. Never had an animal take another step after the shot. Only killed deer, yotes, whistle pigs with it though.

Watched my daughter 5 years ago lay prone, and drop a deer at 336 yards with it. Not bad for an 11 year old \:\)

Love that round.
