I couldn't sleep and was surfing the net when I came across an old article on this site entitled,
".270 Win Worthless on Elk!". It mentioned being a sissy if you use a .270 for elk and don't use a larger caliber.
I never knew Jack O'Connor was a sissy.
I have had three shoulder operations and use an Evo-Shield shirt to shoot even a .243 so that is why I named myself Sissy Boy on this site.
I have read numerous articles from gun writers and guides stating that a .270 is a good elk cartridge.
I have practiced a lot and can shoot 2" standing with no support to 100 yards. I can shoot 3" with shooting sticks or prone to 200 yards and with a solid rest to 300 yards. I will never shoot pass 300 yards b/c I don't feel competent enough to do so.
I will continue to hunt elk with my .270 AND my 6.5x55 and humanely kill them.
