The 270 has two advantages:
* For a given bullet weight, the .270 bullet will have better sectional density and ballistic coefficient.
* The 270 brass has room for more powder.
So, the .270 will shoot flatter, farther, will penetrate better for a given bullet weight, which translates into a better chance at a quick, humane kill.
Put the two cartridges side by side, and the difference should be rather obvious.
Nothing wrong with the 7-08 but all things considered, I'd rather have a .270.

When you are dead, you won't even know that you are dead... It's a pain only felt by others.
