    Chamber designations on tubes really aren't that hard
    Stops this happening when guns get sold.

    So how much difference would there be in case capacity between this and the .270wsm, close?
    I know of one rifle up here, (flew back to Canada on Sunday) and I the guy really likes it but is a bit vauge on why he did an AI on his .270.

    Why not ai the 270 ?

    It certainly perks up the 280 & 30-06.

    I will soon have a reamer for the 6.5-06, might not gain much but who knows ?

    In the real world you are not going to see any worthwhile benefit over a standard 270 are you?

    depends whether you consider less resale value and having to fire form cases and buy weirdo dies a worthwhile benefit

    Yeah but is it fast enough to make any noticeable difference - I am guessing not really
