I chose .308, and .30-06 due to keeping my reloading bullets to a minimum, since they can be used for both. But absolutely nothing wrong with the .270. It's a great rifle round.

Yea i wanted a .308 just becouse you can get cheap ammo but i can just get a .223 to coyote hunt with.

Here's the ballistic tables of most rifle rounds. As you can see it is a very flat shooter.

About the only other cartridge that packs a wallop with a light recoil is another bastard child of the 30/06 the 25/06. If you don't like or shoot the gun you are trading you will not go wrong with a savage 270. The savage will put food on the table or provide you with hours of fun for many years to come. If you take care of the rifle and don't do anything stupid someone in your family will inherit the rifle. All through the recent ammo shortage there was 270 ammo on the shelf every where. The 270 is overlooked and under appreciated.

I WAS going to make a smart alek remark about a weak, inaccurate has been round but then I thought it might inflame some folks and even possibly get me banned! SO I'm just gonna say for ME the .22 is for small game, and anything else is 30-06 or bigger!

That is ridiculous. .30-06 will kill small game too.
