Made my wife buy me a new Abolt II Hunter last Friday.

The stainless with walnut stock.

.270wsm

I wasn't sold on the WSM's but I didn't have one. lol I have a .300RUM so no need for a big gun. I had a .270BAR so no need for that and I have a Abolt 30.06 so not that either. I guess I wanted something different so I could buy more shells! LOL

I looked over more than one Xbolt and wasn't impressed with the feel. Didn't even throw up good for me and that plastic clip is a shame. Pay more for less is the way the world turns now. Although, I'm sure it is a good rifle.

Not sure if I got a good deal but $679 was the cheapest within 2 hours of me.

I love my 270 WSM. I have always been a 7mm mag fan, but I am convinced that the 270 WSM is the best deer round ever devised.

I like my 270 WSM better than my 300 WSM. Believe it or not the 270 WSM outperforms the 300 WSM, according to Remington Factory ammo ballistic chart....

Welcome to the family. They are a contagious family. I have 2 300 WSM's, 1 7mm WSM and 1 270 WSM. The 7mm WSM is my favorite.

I joined the WSM family but got out of it when I sold the ruger 77 standard .300 wsm I used to have. It shot pretty good but that thing kicked like a freakin mule so I sold it and bought a .375 H&H mag barrel for my encore....which I also sold because I needed money \:\(

I'm just the opposite. I have both of these in the Browning A-Bolt Stalker and the .300 WSM groups better than the .270 WSM.

I love my 300WSM best gun I have ever shot! I have killed 3 deer over 300 yards in the last 2 years. All dropped on the first shot.

performance wise, the 270 WSM outperforms the 300 WSM, even though you may like your 300 better.

The 7WSM is my " Go to " gun. Several sit in the safe while she goes afield.
