    Get yourself a rifle, learn to shoot it well, learn about shot placement, projectile choice, and what works and what doesnt, every calibre has its good points and its bad points and learning the limitations of your setup will do you a thousand times more good than buying all sorts of stuff because "oh i didnt like that it did this, or it did that"
    A great example of this is the 270 haters here that hate them because they cant shoot or dont understand shot placement and ballistics and need to buy big cannons that could take down a Elephant you hit it in the tail to compensate for their shortcomings :p

    I understand all those things
    But see deer get shot everyday and I've formed the opinion that almost anything is better than a 270.

    You see deer get shot everyday by once every six months hunters who sight their rifle in and call it job done...

    Very true but there's more blood to follow when they use a decent gun
    Sorry it's deeply rooted hate
    I do hope one day you'll see the light

    If people use a quality round with a well constructed bullet then the .270 will be as effective a caliber as any other on the hill.
    Poorly constructed and cheap (usually 130 grain) bullets that suffer premature blow up and jacket separation are where the problem is with the .270...not the caliber!

    Its funny, that sounds like exactly the reasons for some people buying a 270 instead of a 7mm08.

    No, like with any calibre the right bullet in the right place, all comes down to me getting it right.

    The rifle in my photo is a .222, I've lost a few animals with it due to poor shot placement because my finger was getting itchy
