    The gains are similar to .280 Ackley over the parent case, but if you really want a .270 hotrod on your std action go .270 Gibbs, just a pain forming cases, then it's all gofarkinfast gravy.

    Yeah thought about the Gibbs, but I may be able to score a set of new 270 Win Ackley dies gratis
    I note Robbie T has 270 Gibb dies at reasonable price ....decisions ....not an easy road for a flake
