.270 ammunition is a popular round for outdoor enthusiasts and hunters, offering excellent ballistics and enough power to take down most game in the United States.
The round itself has an interesting history. In 1925, Winchester decided to neck down a .30-06 cartridge to .277" (popularly called the .270). What followed was nothing less than phenomenal. Why? Not withstanding the celebrated efforts that late gun writers Jack O'Connor and Col. Townsend Whelen put into popularizing the venerable cartridge, the undisputed bottom line is that the .270 Winchester is a downright flat-shooting, accurate, and mildly recoiling round.
Although the round has taken every big-game animal on the North American continent, it has gained a unique and incredibly loyal following among Western hunters as the rifle of choice for deer and elk. .270 ammo is widely available and chambered by all major arms makers in most of the different chamber styles available among rifle shooters today. The wide range of bullet offerings are impressive, making it suitable for everything from varmints to elk when equipped with a full metal jacket, soft point or jacketed hollow point projectile. The round has even distinguished itself well as a "plains" rifle for African hunters because of its power and versatility. The excellent ballistic coefficients of the .277" bullet offerings extend the rifle's down-range accuracy giving you an all-around cartridge you can use for just about anything that’s light enough to take just about anywhere.
