    I would also vote for the .270

    I have a Rem 700 in .270 and I use it for everything! Honestly though, you will no be disappointed with either. Go with what your heart says.

    After finally realizing that my 7mm is to big for my area.. I’ll be buying a new gun this week… Found a smokin deal on a .270, But went looking for a .308…Help Make my mind up

    Is this a 7mm mag? I was wondering, since you consider a 7mm too big for local whitetails, the .308 translates to 7.62mm. The .270 is a very sweet gun, but if you’re looking for something smaller, why not consider a .243? I have a Remington 700ADL in .243 and it is phenomenally accurate! Big enough for deer, great for varmints too.

    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    I got one of these chambered in a .44 for an ex-girlfriend from when I was a teenager-

    Last I heard from her she thought it was a really cute toy.

    Seriously, a .270 is ahrdly any different at all from a 7MM.[/color:389rvkh8] Step out of the loop and go for a 6MM or a .243. Awesome deer guns when matched with the right cartridge and very easy for the kids to handle.[/quote:389rvkh8]

    So true. If you haven’t, check the ballistics on the .270 and 7mm. They are very similar. [=}=]
