Thanks guys. Its a savage 110 with the accu-trigger, and no box mag its top load it looks brand new

Great round mate and loaded with the right projectiles it makes a great big deer round out to 300m fairly easy.

Ive shot big critters with it and 130gr SPs but they were up close and projectile never exited, for ranges out past 200 id opt for bonded bullets and prefer 140gr accubonds.

What I like about the calibre so much is it packs the power but isnt heavy on recoil, which in my book reads a more accurate capable round.

Bastard son of the 30/06 and a great back up to the 30/06 responsible for taking a lot of game around the world. Very popular here in Australia as well where it's taken everything from foxes up to camels and sometimes buffalo though very undergunned for that.
Load it with a good 130 grain projectile and you'll never look back.

You should trading for a great cartridge and fine solid rifle. Got a scope on it too !

My favorite round for big hunting. You will love it and should be very accurate as Savage rifles have a good reputation for accuracy. I have shot at least 100 deer with one going all the way back to 1973. Get it and enjoy!!!

I recently sold mine to by a .308. Now I find myself figuring out a way to buy another .270. Lol I love the cartridge. My next purchase will definitely be a .270.

+1 on the .270. A very flat shooting, accurate round
