    I've only ever shot 2 .270's, one was a tikka t3 and the other a m695, both had very mild recoil but the m695 was a real pleasure to shoot! The 130's out the of the .270 suppressed kick bugger all compared to 165's out of my weighted sako 75 .308. I once stood behind a savage axis .270 with no suppressor, loudest rifle I've ever heard next after that would be the .25/06.

    Yes this is my mates gun and I have finally brought him to the dark side we are having his new Xbolt 7mm rem mag dressed up at the moment it is going to be beautiful.
    And no HUNT ALONE TIP 7mm is suppressed very happy this will save my ears for sure when we hunt.
    The 270 is soft as with the hunt alone tip but it is waaaaaayy to loud to be useful if I bush pig it it will be suppressed don't worry about that.
    But will see if someone wants to swap it for something already pigged it is a nice light tops gun at the moment (If you like hunting alone that is and only shooting once Hahaha)

    Took my precious to the range yesterday arvo ahead of a bit of fallow pest control this evening. Chucked the gong in front of the bank, drove out to about 100 odd, lent on the back of the ute, pop, dead centre of bull dot on gong. Handed it to my mate, pop, same result. Job tidy

    Bit of overkill for the fallow but dead is dead

    Rem Mod 7 308
    16" standard barrel with DPT overbarrel
    165 BTs doing 2650
    Leupy VX2 with clicky bits see's me out to 500 with the zero stop in
    Stug stock all up 2.4kg or something
    Felt bloody good to pull the trigger! Been ages

    Enough gun
    Only deer I ever got with the 416 remmy. Shot at a couple others but ran out of talent. Only stag I've ever got too.
    20 years ago close to Waitangi day-evening shot
    Beard looks really ginga there. Only some of my soul was missing. Lot of white in it now but lol

    Nothing wrong with a bush pig 270.
    Didn't NZ hunter mention that 270 is least effected by velocity drop with shorter barrels and factory ammo

    I must admit the couple of possums I've removed from the food chain with the 45/70 MIGHT have been overkill...

    Unless you're using slugs , that might be borderline overkill...

    1 and 1/8 4 shot but was keeping the range down to less than 4m so they effective

    Honestly if you have an accurate rifle that you like to carry anywhere and are familiar with whether it be a 270 or a 308 or any sensible deer cartridge you wont go wrong...I used to beat myself up about numbers and to tell you the truth if you shoot a deer properly you'll never know the difference...
