    I watched that a few days ago. Interestingly the 270wsm with a 150gr was very competitive with the 6.8W (with high bc 165 and 175) out to 500yd. But further out things would change

    That would be a .270 weatherby. Been done a bit by those chasing 3000 fps with a 150.

I agree there is not much in it just what you get used to and how you use it . Its the same debate with the Creedmoor vs 260 i went with the Creedmoor simply because i could get better choices in rifles and of the shelf ammo . Both the 260 and the 280 suffered from poor marketing by remington and a lack of rifle options ,had they been better at who knows . If there are enough rifle makers that build the western, then it will take off and then we can have the same debate about it and the prc along with all the banter that goes with it .
    IMO this is the main thing that determines the long term popularity of any cartridge, if enough people see lots of manufacturers making something its almost guaranteed to take off.

    Plenty of shooters getting 3000 fps with 145 ELD-X and Superperformance in .270s.
