    Love my 270 wsm. I wish they made a bullet with a higher ballistic coefficient. Something around .650 would be awesome. I shoot 140 accubond.

    Check out the Accubond Long Range coming out this spring. Also Berger Hybrid Hunting bullets are coming.

    Yeah, what is wrong with the '06? Although getting another rifle is never a BAD idea!

    I was trying to say that I don't think I will hit the 1500 round mark for quite some time. Obviously the more you shoot the better shot you become.

    For deer and antelope I think you are right on with the 270 but if you ever consider larger animals in the future you may want to consider the 7wsm. My last 4 elk have dropped in their tracks. I shoot 7wsm with 160 NP and I am VERY pleased.

    Since you already have a 30-06 and a 300 WSM, I would buy a 270WSM just to mix it up and fill that void. I have one in a Browning A-bolt II Stainless Stalker and its super accurate with factory ammo. I shoot the Winchester Supreme with 130 grain Ballistic silver tips and it puts three shots into .350 inch groups at 100 yards. Most accurate rifle I own with Factory ammo!!

    I have killed a couple bulls with the 270WSM. Performance was excellent.

    As I noted, I like the 270 WSM for the factory ammo guy.

    I do like the 7 WSM for the handloader though. Cool cartridge.
