Default 270 value

I have a local guy selling a NEF .270 Win with a NJ prefix for $355. Pics look good. Gun had a few scuffs from use. Is this close to the guns value?

Sounds high unless it's got a laminated stock and even then I'd say closer to $300.

No laminate. It does have an older Bushnell scope on it but I would probably replace that anyways. I was thinking a little high also.

The 270 isnt popular in the Handi platform for some reason. I'd say $250 to a max of $300 if it was really nice.

I recently purchased a H&R with synthetic stock in 270 with a 20 Ga. barrel in a factory box with print saying same for $240.00 plus shipping in almost new condition. After I bought it he posted a second one for sale for $250.00 plus shipping. I almost bought that one to. I sold the 20 Ga. barrel for $100.00 . Net cost $140.00 plus $25.00 shipping.

+1 $300 only if that's the last one available forever. For some odd reason the 270 barrels shot loose from their receivers faster than others.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

270's are high power, fairly large bullet at pretty hefty speeds.

Most of the other common botttlenecks that are bigger are also slower.



The ones that are smaller like the .243 are as fast but with much smaller bullets.

.270 was more or less designed as sportsmans dream, shoot flat, straight, hit hard, take anything that walks on this landmass.


I suspect if the loads were made up using a little lighter bullets and a little less power they would have lasted a lot longer and still been deadly.


I respect the .270, I don't care for it, it does not scratch my itch, but I respect it.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
