I've been using a 30-06, but have never used a .270. I saw in the replies to Hick Chick's post that some of you say the .270 is more accurate. Most of the hunting I do is in open spaces. Should I try one out & see if it works better for me?

I always root for the 06 but the 270 has a more flatter shot trajectory. It could also be personal preference if you were to test both rifles out. That's seems like a hot topic between the 270 and 06. I sense a POLL.

i dont shoot either rifle but respect both.The discussion over which round/rifle is better is a big part of deer hunting.The topic will never be settled ,I hope.The topic is a staple round the deer camp table just like mashed taters....or do you like baked...or boiled taters.Years ago i heard an old man say "BEWARE THE MAN WHO OWNS BUT ONE RIFLE.HE'S LIBEL TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT".Just thought i'd throw that out there.Whatever rifle/round you prefer make sure you burn ammo till it and you are one and deadly accurate.

There's no need to switch Calibers.
the .270 vs. the .30-06 of course there's difference's but just because the .270 is the best choice for one hunter
doesn't mean it's the best choice for every hunter and vise versa with the .30-06.
Some hunters are just more confident with the .30-06, It's just personal preference really, that's pretty much what
it's going to boil down to when comparing the 2 calibers.
I have a .270 and A .30-06 I PREFER MY .270 ONLY beause I'm more accurate with the .270
The 30-06 has more hitting power and more Bullet choices But you have to be confident with the weapon you're hunting with.
I could use my .30-06 to hunt with but i'm more confident with my .270

270 is a necked down 30 06, this should tell you alot about the way they shoot. The whole issue is personal preference. If you have a 06 that's doing the job, good. I personally like the 270 because of the flatter trajectory, but that doesn't mean that it is the best rifle.
