.270 WSM is very popular in AZ. I use a 25-06 and a .300 Win Mag throughout that state. I find the 25-06 to be a great class 2 game getter, deer/antelope, while the .300 is suited for elk, bear, and other game.
I just traded for a weatherby 300 weatherby magnum. Does anybody know the ballistics bdc up to 1000 yards???????????
