To add to the comments above, if money is an issue and it usually is, look at the Mueller line of red dot scopes (e. Arthur Brown & Co.) which can be had for under $200 and are a big improvment over the Bushnell Banner series. Also consider the Bushnell 3200 elite series scopes. One can pick up a 3X9X40 with rain guard and firefly reticle for around $225 or LESS. They are a great scope for the money. Check out the full line of several manufacturers at a GREAT price at www.bearbasinoutfitters.com
I have found their prices beat SWFA, Optics planet and several other places such as Cabelas, Basspro etc. Their selection is second to none.
You will be happy with the .270 Win. It shoots flat and hits hard, and will bring home the venison near and far. I have an older Ruger mdl 77 MKII that shoots the 130 grainers and the 150's very well, but doesn't like the 140 grain loads much. Dan
