    I love both rounds, but if that is all you are doing stick with the .243 cheaper, plenty effective, and in florida I doubt you will need the range of a .270. I got a 30-06, .270, and .243. I've killed the most with the .243. Even though I did just get the 30-06, and it will be the most used next season.


    I've never had a deer go past 20 feet after being shot with the .243, the thing was damn accurate.

    Shot placement with a quality projectile... Everything else is just decoration...

    As always...

    But for those occasions when it suddenly falls apart, or doesn't quite come together, there is something to be said for the "thump" factor.

    I agree here with a 7mm-08 or the 30-06. I hunt deer hunt with a 7mm-mag. I bought that for elk and boar hunting. I really like the accuracy of this round but it's a little big for bambi. I also find the 30-06 would be almost perfect for both deer and boar.

    A 30-06 sure is a fun round, kicks like a mule, and will knock the fur off just about everything on this continent.

    Under 500 yards the 270 win will be able to do everything the 270wsm will do. After that it goes sub sonic and I guess that could be a problem. Personally I don’t take that long of shots at critters but I know plenty guys that do. To me for the money I would go with the plane old 270. The dang thing is a meat drill.

    Headshot. I prefer something bigger when it comes to going after 400-500lbs.
