    I won a remington 700

    Went to the Harry Hampton Wildlfie fund banquest last night and won a remington 700 sps dm in 270 win. Anybody have one of these. It seems to have a nice trigger. I have only deer hunted with my 7mm mag so I don't know how the 270 win compares. i might keep in case my daugthers want to try out hunting.

    I hate you!
    Not really, it's great to see someone win. I've had a 700ADL in 30-06 since the '70s and absolutely love the rifle. The .270 was my second choice in calibers, but I chose the -06 because I was trying to get stationed in Alaska and wanted the heavier bullets.
    The .270 will take down anything you can hunt in the lower 48. An excellent caliber. It's been used to take African game, but that was by O'conner and the likes.

    The most accurate & consistent across a range of loads rifle straight out of the box that I have ever owned is a 700, which I have had for years.

    I'll not get into caliber wars, but I agree w/ OldVet, "the .270 will take down anything you can hunt in the lower 48" -- albeit for specific game in specific terrain "x" would be better.

    While the 270 Win is a good flat shooting cartridge, it does have it's drawbacks. The biggest being range of factory bullet weights available for it. Not sure how much has changed, but when I was shooting a 270 the lightest bullet weight I could find was I believe 100 grain and heaviest was 150 grain. While good for dear, antelope and other smaller game, I don't think it would be even my 2nd choice for large game like elk, moose or grizzly bear.

    Barnes goes to180 grain.

    Nosler Partition goes to 160 Grain.

    May be some others, which I'm not aware of.

    Soweet! The .270 is one of the most versatile cartridges around. Just ask Jack O'Connor.

    If you reload, you can easily go from light coyote loads to efficient elk stoppers.

    Now, since you saved so much money on the rifle (ha ha), get the best glass you can't afford

    The .270 is an excellent deer cartridge, and the 700 is a beautiful rifle. Congratulations!

    Everything is great if you get it free!

    In my State, next to the 30-30, the .243 and the .270 are probably the most prevalent deer rifles used by hunters.

    I'm a fan of the .270 because it's fast and a flat shooter. Of course there are some drawbacks just like there are in any caliber.

    But to get a free Rem 700 in .270 as a door prize... That's a big win in my book!

    Congrats buddy!
