Here is my delima. I already have a nice Browning A-bolt .270 sittin under a leopold. I now got a new TC Pro Hunter Muzzleloader for Christmas. I am about to buy an additional barrel for it. Do i buy the new 300 Win Mag? Is there that much of a difference between the 300 mag and the .270? I will only be hunting in Tennessee. Fields and woods. What do you guys think? I also want to buy a .223 for coyotes. So do i keep the .270 or upgrade to the 300?

Keep the .270 and buy a 204 Ruger barrel if you can...

I could probably do that. Im really thinking of keeping the .270 anyways. Theres not that much of a difference in it and the 300 anyways according to ballistics

Definetly keep the .270 Abolt and go with something out of the ordinary in the encore. A bolt gun with 3 or 4 down the mag is much more versatile than the single shot. I might just be tempted to opt for a single shot pistol barrel, though. That's a ton of fun! (Note- you can't legally put a pistol barrel on the ML encore frame if the ATF checks you, though)

Lots of difference in ballistics and shouldering one.
I would highly recommend the .300

Why not just get a 25-06 for your TC and use it for both long range shots on deer and yotes?

a 270 with a 110 V-Max or a 130 anything will cover Tn nice,,unless you live west tof the river where you can see for 2 miles then a 300 loaded right has an advantage,,not on game performance,but shot placement is easier past 400 or soo.
