.270. those who say that isn't 'enough,' don't know shot placement.

I hunt with 30 cal. 308 win and 300 wsm
For deer/antelope I like a standard cup and core. For Elk/bear I like a bonded core or partition type.

I use Remington core-lok 30-06 180 grain for deer and 220 grain for elk. It'll knock the dirt out the animal. Thumbs up I also use Federal shotgun loads, 3 1/2 inch #2 for turkey. Thumbs up
