my dear, and trusted Remington Model 710 in .270 WIN. never a mis-fire (other than bad factory ammo), and the "poor mans deer gun" has become my all around hunting and long range shooting gun, after investing quite a bit into it. never had a deer, or any other fur bearing animal, run more than a few feet. its fairly economical to shoot, and reload, has mild-recoil, and will drop ANYTHING in North America. its the brother to the legendary .30-06. and puts up a hell of a show against one! it is all in what you like.
