I keep hearing how good the .270 Winnie is on Elk, if you just put the shot into the heart lung area.
I agree with that, however, the .270 is marginal at best according to the "gun scribes of note", and my experiences with it in the field shows, that it is totally lacking in killing power. Especially, when everything just doesn't go right.
The idots that keep promoting the .270 "as a do all" must have very little experience in dealing with these beast.
Using a Marginal Caliber on such hugh animals is only a stunt. IMO.
