.270 range

7 posts in this topic

What is the typical range you can shoot a .270. What is the longer range you can shot one and drop a deer?

I'm not sure about that one, but I have shot at the range out to 200 yds and didn't have any problems. I would think you would be all right out to 300 yds, but do some more research before you go trying it. I shoot 130 grain Remington PSP's out of mine and it really smacks them HARD!!! My average shot is between 50 and 100yds. Short blood trails, unless of course they're DRT.

The 270 has more than enough oomph to knock a deer down farther away than most people can hit them, put your bullet where it belongs and it's all over but the story tellin.

My buddy and I each shoot remington 700 .270 bolt action last week on Caribou (bigger than whitetails). He shot his at 300 yards and I shot mine at 215 yards...both did the trick. Both shooting 130 grain winchester silvertips. As mentioned...put the bullet in the right spot and you can probably shoot as far as your comfortable with.

good info guys, i was thinking of using a .270 instead of a 7mm because of ammo prices and wanting to shoot more ahead of time

270 is all my dad uses even for moose. Seen him drop his biggest bull in its tracks with his 270. Shouldnt be a problem for deer at just about any range. I know 2 people that had taken moose close to 500 yards with a 270. Like FL SNIPER mentioned shoot as far as your comfortable with. Good luck

The .270 is a very versital caliber for shooting deer, speed goats, bear, and caribu. It all depends on what your capable of shooting out to and what size grain bullet you fly through it. A wise decesion imo!!!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
