I am looking to go Elk hunting in Colorado this year and was wanting input on using the 270 WSm for a cal. for Elk. If it is a good round what are some good ammo choices I can buy for this hunt. This 270 Wsm is in a winchester model 70 with a 3-9-42 sightron scope mounted. Do you think this will do? Thanks
I've use my old 270 Win a couple of times for elk and it worked fine . You shouldn't have any trouble with a 270 WSM at all . I used a 150 gr bullet and was shooting handloads in mine at the time so I can't help much there . . I have a 3X9X42. Sightron II with a dot ,not on my 270 though . They make a pretty good scope .
Green1320, the .270 WSM will certainly take down any bull in the dark timber or open country! Now the secret is the proper bullet selection for your .270 ok. I prefer a 160 grain or heavier bullet if I can get my hands on some.
I reload my own cases and I can tell you for a fact, the 160 grain Nosler Partition bullet will put any bull elk down for the count, if you place the bullet in the vitals area.
If you can NOT find a 160 grain factory round (I doubt it) go with a premium bullet by Federal (TBBC) or something with Swift A Frame bullets in them.......150 grain bullet weight.
