The .270 Winchester is a hunting rifle worth owning

The .270 Winchester has pretty much done it all in the hunting woods and for good reason. It’s easy to shoot. It throws bullets fast and quite flat, yet doesn’t loosen your teeth, and it delivers at least 1,000 foot-pounds of energy as far downrange as 660 yards. (Contributed photo)

The .270 Winchester is an icon, an All-American icon, and a touchstone to our 20th century sport hunting tradition. It connects us to our fathers, grandfathers, great grandfathers, and one of the most influential arms and ammunition manufacturers in U.S. history – Winchester. The .270 Winchester is one of the most underrated of the once overrated deer and elk hunting cartridges of all time.
