I've decided that since I want to shoot primarily light bullets with low recoil, the 270 is the best fit for me. The problem is, the 308 serves this role quite well with slightly less attractive SD and BC in light weight bullets. Nonetheless it seems that the 270 is more lethal and performs better with 130-160 grain bullets. I also like 30-06 simply for the higher bullet weight versatility. So I've got a decision to make. It's between a 22" 308 and a 24" 270. I believe that the .270 give me greater versatility, especially with lighter bullets. It I were to go with a 308, I may end up shooting 165 grains to make use of better BC and SD. I like the flat shooting, low recoil aspects of the 270 as well. Is it true that a 270 equals or outperforms the 308 with all bullet weights? If anyone has a link to a good comparison of velocities, BCs, SDs of these calibers and also 30-06 I'd really appreciate it.
