It should because all's it is is a necked down 30/06.
Between the .270, .308 and 30/06 there's not much difference in performance to a point and to me these 3 calibres seem to be the stepping stones from the .22 and .24 calibres up to the bigger .30's and beyond.
These 3 calibres are probably the most used in the hunting world and have accounted for a lot of game animals around the world.
The .270 is what my son got his 1st 2 pigs with a few years ago on a Northern Territory pig cull.
At that time he was 15 and the recoil was a bit much for him so we fitted a Pachmyr kick pad for him and that tamed the recoil enough for him to make it manageable to shoot.
A good calibre that you can't go wrong with.
