    Wtb: 270

    Got a mate looking for his first rifle he's pretty sold on getting a 270
    Something around the 1000-1200 mark

    As a .270 shooter, IMO, tell your mate to get something like a 6.5x55 Swe as a first rifle.

    Deer won't notice the difference, but far more pleasant to shoot for a newbie.

    I got a .270 as my first rifle and I find it fine.. It depends how much shooting has been done before (was the first rifle I owned but done plenty of shooting before) and how the gun is set up (weight being the main factor).
    I would go with dogmatix advice though

    He has already shot 3 deer for 3 shots with a 270 hence the reason he's so keen on one
    Recoil doesn't really bother him

    In that case, there are two Tikka T3s in 270 on Trademe at the mo.
    Although one has been circumcised down to a 20" barrel.

    At 20" barrel, the second .270 would get it's arse kicked in by a 6.5x55 and with less recoil to boot (pun intended)
