Absolutely, I am a Marine stationed in Virginia and I have a Ruger M77 .270 and i have a Nikon scope with bullet drop compensator turrets on mine that i can onsistently shoot 3'' rings with at any range from 100 to 500 yds. It is one of the most widely used rifle caliber's for deer hunting. I would stick with the 130 Gr Nosler ballistic tip if you want an all around amazing trajectory that i have taken deer with at 500 yds. no problem. I also have a Remington Model 700 .308 that set up for long range. Zero is 200 yds and i can engage targets at 1200 yrds accurately all day long. Enjoy, shoot as often as possible and really get to know your weapon and how it shoots.
