Saw the post about the 25-06 and it got me thinking. I am back into rifle hunting as of this year and have acquired a .270 . A couple of people have told me that they don't like the caliber and deer usually run off after getting shot with it. I was under the impression that it was an excellent caliber for deer!!!!????? People, please help me to feel better about my rifle. I thought it was very popular and the ballistics look more than adequate. I want first hand accounts from any .270 hunters. What kind of bullets...performance...etc.. Please.
