Karl, a lot of people believe in the 130 gr for the 270 win as ideal wt for deer. I prefer the 140 gr in a good bullet design. All three wts shoot very well for me. I take 140 gr Swift A-frames in a Rem 270 Mountain rifle as a back up elk rifle to the Weatherby 270 in 150gr. I find the 270 win to shoot just about everything very accurate.
