if i had my own tv show there wouldnt ever be any mention of the .270, i cant believe how pissed off it makes me feel, overated lack of versatility knock off of the great american legend 30-06 is what it will go down in history  as in my world jack o connor should have been shot with a damn .270 in the leg and then shot in the other leg with a 30-06 then he would have got picture i think, i wonder how it felt to be the leader of a cult. dont mind my rambling people i am just venting here sorry.

How about the 280 then?  That is a knockoff of the 30-06 as well.  Only difference, is it didn't pick up the popularity of the 270.  Shot one a couple times, and I have to say, it doesn't feel a whole lot different than either the 06 or the 270.

 

Just trying to help you vent.  I am getting a good laugh out of this.

i actually own a .280 as well, 6.5rem mag (which is just remingtons answer to the the .270win) is something else i own and yes the 30-06 as well. the thing about the .280 is that its a 7mm and the bullet weights made for 7mm is very wide and diverse which is a reason that i like the 7mm and .280rem just happens to be one that i own. if jack would have used the .280 instead of the .270 that would have made the world spin a little smoother!

consider the time period conners did this stuff. back country access was limited to the few who lived there, or was rich enough to hire guides. rifles were sporterized from military stuff, and the only real case to work with was the 30-06 as H&H stuff was for the other folk. prem. barrels where a new remington or 70, and douglas was something gun magazines talked about. lots of people hunted as much as o'Conner but no stories were written, so just like baseball heros legends are born. except these days most big game hunters don't take steroids.

pyro, let's say for argument's sake that some wierd law were passed that made all rifle calibers except .270 illegal.  What would you do then?

 

Buddy, my new nickname for you from this point forward will be pyro O'Connor! 

 

(BTW -- I'm not a fan of the .270 either, for exactly the same reasons you mention)

so i ordered some 6.5 and 7mm bullets from m-i-d-w-a-y and they throw in there master catalog and i was thumbing through it and low and behold i can build my own m700 in 6.5-284, i can buy an action and remington makes a factory barrel in the 6.5-.284 but i would have to buy a trigger guard and a stock and the floor plate and either a clip and hardware or the follower and the clip box, but either way i would have probably $800 in it buy then so its still a possibility i guess.

ll lb outstanding plains rifle-- if your interested a 308 round will chamber and close in a 6.5x284 so be extra careful segregating reloads. -- can't find the neighbor kid to see if it will swage the 308 bullet down to 6.5. when fired.

Nice stick, that is a PLAINS rifle, Dale. Is that a 30mm Leupy in Leupy std mounts?

Swaging a .308 down to .264 with 50kpsi+ surrounded by a small amount of 4150 doesn't sound too appealing.

The berber is holding up as well.

use the same backdrop to show real gun not copied off the internet

4.5x14 varmit leo with low leo turn ins, zeroed at 300 yds, calibrations of varmit reticle are 2n, 400 yds, 3 th-500yds, 4th 600 yds. although gun is good for 1000 yd- stock isn't up to good prone shooting.

well after some time reading some reloading manuals i have decided that the 6.5x.284 isnt what i am looking for, cause really my 6.5 rem mag will outpreform the .284, i did find something that may be what i am looking for, but the problem is that like the .264 win mag i could see a stigma easily formed by the masses, the 6.5x300 weatherby mag would be my answer, but i would have an automatic barrel burner label placed beside it, but i think that would be a cool round a lot like the 6.5stw i suppose.

It's not the raw paper ballistic numbers, O'Connor...as you well know, it's the mystical qualities of a .277" dia bullet which magically kills more deaderer than a bullet 0.013" smaller or 0.007" larger in diameter!!!

But face it, O'Connor, you know as well as anyone that a bighorn sheep hit by a .277" projectile is immediately "extra dead" to use your term, especially if that .277" projectile happens to be a Barnes TSX!
