.270 shoots flatter, though, in my experience, fratello.
Oh, agreed. One of the reasons he loved it. Less recoil, also. However, that is all a matter of knowing your rifle, and practicing at that range. All I was saying was, put the bullet on the animal in the right place, and you have a dead animal.
Because I own a .358 STA, .338WM, .300wm and a .270 ruger #1.
Those 4 have me covered from coues deer to moose.
I wouldn’t buy another rifle. I sure wouldn’t turn an 06 down if gifted though.
Last week ate a moose ribeye roast a friend killed in AK last year. .06 at 80yds did the trick.
I use my .270 with 130gr TTSX and IMR 4350 for sitka blacktails, black bear, sheep and caribou.
I shoot my .270 every Tues/Thursday and love that caliber...
However, the 06 has an advantage of a wider range of bullet weights for reloading (up to 220gr bullets)
while the .270 max is 150-160gr bullet weight.
I used a 300 Winmag. 378 yard shot.
30'06 will be plenty. But get to the range and stretch it out. Get used to dialing or bdc reticle depending on what you are using. I'd recommend a premium bullet, accubond, eldx, game king, etc.
Make sure you have the game plan, breathing, steadiness, trigger pull,etc.
My opinion In order of importance fwiw:
1. Shot placement
2. Bullet construction
we try to get <300yds., optimally 200 or so. 400 is far.
I have killed several Elk with a 30-06. use a good bullet. 165-180 grain. Go kill stuff.
