Ok so I have a .270 win Savage that I love but I have probably shot it less than 100-150 times over the past 4 years. Since Ive started reloading about 6 months ago I plan on shooting it alot more since the cost will go down and i can actually shoot better rounds. I like the .270 because it is pretty decent for all aspects, from target practice to coyotes to bigger game. However, I sometimes want a different caliber that might be more "flexible", and that might be a little cheaper to reload, and is much different than the 270. I think the 270 might be a little much for coyotes and hogs and varmints. This might just be an excuse to add another rifle down the road too... My question is this, is the .270 "flexible" enough to be good for varmints and up to average sized deer or would there be another caliber that is much better? I want something that would be much different ballistically than the 270 because I believe it does have a good range of capabilities to it. The calibers Ive often read about and considered are the 30-06, 308, 223, 243 (even though I feel like it is very close to the 270 to justify purchasing), and the 30-30. Thank yall for your help!
