the 270 is pretty much a necked down 30-06 cartridge actually. the 270 should shoot flatter since its about the same amount of powder with a less heavy bullet. imo a 30-06 is pretty overkill for anything you are gonna kill down here. maybe im just partial to my 270 Tikka.preciate the insight, what's the difference between 270 and 30.06 round? what's a flatter shot? more accurate i assume?
