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.
