.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!!!
