Default have you tried managed recoil

Remington and a few other manufacturers have come out with managed recoil loads for the .270 that have about half the recoil than the standard load. They do have less long range performance, but depending on how much you shoot you might want to consider them as an option.

I have taken 16 deer with a Marlin 30-30 and 40 plus with a 1958 Winchester model 70 in .243.The .243 would be my recommendation due to light recoil and flat trajectory.I use 100 grain remington core-lokts.I can shoot 40 rounds at the range and really dial it in if necessary.No sore shoulder afterwards.I hold dead on the heart/lung area out to 150 yds. and on the spine out to 300 yds.My longest kill shot was 270 yds.I held on the top of the shoulder and the bullet dropped into the heart/lung area.I do not hold off the deer either over or in front of a running deer. Good Luck.

We tend not to suggest shooting at running deer here as generally it's not a safe thing to do either for the deer or other hunters that might in the area.

Sorry about the running deer comment.My running deer experience had to do with driven deer in a crop damage situation.

We really try to teach safety here especially for the newbies. Seems like a lot of hunting accidents take place during the deer drives which is still done in PA, Ohio, and Michigan that I know of. We stopped doing drives in PA many years ago even though it was productive at times. Thanks for your comments.

I would recommend the model 700 in .308. 30 cal provides virtually more cartridge offerings than anything else out there, and if you ever evolve into reloading you can tailor the rounds to what suits you and or your game.
I have a 700 in .223 and love it.

If you have a 30-30 and like it, why not use it? I have heard many times that cartridge has taken more deer than any other.

You can hang on to your Weatherby and see if you grow into it so to speak. As time goes on and you shoot more you might become less sensitive to recoil.
