Default Best 270 Win Rifle?

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and have a couple of questions.
First off I'm starting to get into hunting and am looking for a 270 win to hunt white tail, hogs and some coyotes but what truly is the best 270 for the price, I've looked into the tikka t3 and am liking what I see but I want to hear yalls opinion. Also I'm looking for a stainless steel barrel and wood stock if possible!
1. Best 270 for the money
2. Best optics/scope for a 270 win
3. Is a 270 win a good gun to start getting serious about hunting?

I have a Ruger M77, one of my BIL's has a BAR, another BIL has a Ruger model 1. I have friends that shoot Winchester model 70's.

Tikka is a good rifle, also check Browning A bolts & X bolts, Marlin, Savage, Remington model 700.

The .270 is a fine hunting rifle for most anything in North America, except maybe the largest bears. I have seen pictures of black bear taken in WI with .270 win.

Try to place a dollar value to not exceed to help define the rifle and scope as you will be told to buy every brand out there anyhow. You could be fine with a 350 dollar package or a used beat with a 4 power weaver scope that 30 years old.

Now for some popcorn !!

best 270 rifle? every one i have owned!

you need to define a budget and then start making decisions based on the budget for the rifle and a budget for a scope. what one person can afford may not be the same as you can afford.

i have owned many rifles in 270 and can't remember one that didn't deliver exactly what i expected from that rifle.

One of the best all around hunting cartridges and lots of good rifles chambered in it. Budget is going to be the defining factor as mentioned in previous posts. Figure glass into your budget. The cartridge deserves more than a cheap scope. Even with the ammo shortage, I always saw 270 available.

I won't give you an opinion per se but I will give you my experience. My Savage 111 in 270 has killed everything I have shot it at. Yes, it is a great round for deer, hogs, coyotes. Don't concern myself with shot placement the way I do with my BILs 243 or my 223 rifles. Never had a problem finding 270 in most any store; in early 2013 it was very easy because most times it was the only boxes on the shelves.

Given a budget of $500 this is the rifle I would look at. Walmart stocks the same rifle.

Many great rifles out there. All the major brands and more will suit your needs and most of these are more accurate than any of us could ever be. As for the best rifle and scope, yer talking thousands of dollars for the scope, and a whole lot more for the gun, so what do you really want? Do you like Monte carlo stocks, or American type. Synthetic for foul weather (The stainless is more suited for that) or wood? And scope wise, what type of terrain will you be using it in? Open country, forests, desert, all of the above, etc. ???

I purchased a Winchester Mdl 70 270 back in 1952. I started reloading ammo for it in 1953. I lived out in the country and used it to get rid of unwonted critters and also shot pronghorn, mule deer, and elk with it . At first it had a Weaver K 4 scope on but when Redfeild came out with a 3-9 X scope I got one for it, its still on the rifle. From what I have read the latest newer model is even better made than my old Winchester rifle. Save up your $$ and go for it.. Get a Leupold very power scope but not over 12 X. Turn it way down when hunting in the woods and have it on 12 X when going after pronghorn. I v also killed deer with 22-250 Rem, 243 Win, 257 Roberts, 25-06 Rem, 264 Win Mag, and 308 Norma Mag rifles but I could have just as well only used the 270 Win rifle.
