    Just got back from a red stag hunt . I took along my rem700 sps x50 vx2 combo an tipped over a 10point Stag with 140gr Accubond Winchester factorys from 100m an it worked a treat with a high behind shoulder shot. It didnt run 15m an tipped.

    Anyone else still enjoy this old favourite?
    Cheers

    Mine is a Ruger M77, but I agree with your bullet choice. The Winchester ammo loaded with Nosler 140 grain Accubonds is a great round. I have put lots of venison in the freezer with this combination.

    Awesome stag, a New Zealand hunt is on my bucket list. :D

    Still use a .270 win, dad always used it, my uncle's use it and my late grandad used it, they all swore by it, flat trajectory, versatile, you can load it with 90gr and shoot jack rabbits or go 150gr Remington Koreloct and shoot deer and elk and then there is always the Ballistic Tip.

    Great buck, good shooting.

    The .270 Winchester is a classic round. A gentle (but excellent) reminder that 'old' cartridges and guns don't lose any ability when a 'new' cartridge or gun comes along.
