I live here in Ohio and was all set to by a 270 Win when I was invited to go on and elk hunting trip next year. Here in Ohio the only thing I would use a center fire rifle for would be varmint hunting (must use shotgun slugs for deer) but I thought the versatility of the 270 Win would also let me take an occasional Deer in Kentucky with my brother. But do you think it would be a good round for Elk. I know it is a legal round to use by Colorado game laws. If you wanted to buy and elk rifle but you were most likely going to use it for other things a lot more when not elk hunting what would you recommend?
Since the invite to hunt elk I have been looking at Remington’s 300 Ultra Mag, but that is so over kill for everything else I would hunt back here in the east. I would love to hear your recommendations.
