    I'm pretty sure we are all going to stick with our opinions. Let's "agree to disagree" here...it's kind of a touchy subject for most of us and we would be better off arguing about 9mm vs. 45acp.

    Possibly to the delight of some, I am making a vow not to post any more comments under ethics threads! :D So what's better, .270 or .308? Don't answer that.

    Oops, that second answer should start with "yes." Sorry!

    Hey, how about this? If you want to argue ethics click on those threads that deal with ethics. If not, don't.

    Funny guy!! That's not even a debate, .270 wipes the floor with the 308. :evil:

    Hunting ethics is a broad subject. But there are instances of black-and-white. If someone says it is ethical to poach (as long as the hunter feels like it), ethical to be unconcerned about wounding and losing animals--or just says that ethics doesn't apply to hunting?

    Hunting has enemies, and I am happy to defend it against them--but I can't defend the type of hunting (or hunter) that doesn't care about the laws or the animal. To the extent that someone insists that "that's what hunting is," I will insist that it is NOT at all what I call hunting.

    .308 is better because it will never shrink. :D

    The 270 is a decent round….but it didn’t hang the moon and stars IMO.

    All I really care about is that folks don't get all emotional in their posts--regardless of how strong their feelings are. :)

    Do you mean subjects, like those "snipers" that are too lazy to stalk up to an ethical range to shoot at big game??? lol

    The 308. After all the 270 is just an adequate coyote gun.

    I'm on the fence. You have to know when to quit is the thing. I've actually changed or modified my opinions from discussions here, there are a lot of good points of view brought up during discussion. However, sometimes it's obvious nobody is gonna budge and at that point "agree to disagree" is the best you're gonna do.

    As far as 270 vs 308... I guess I gotta go with the 270. It'll do anything the 308 will do but is flatter shooting. I mean, why go 308 over 30-06?

    I don't shoot either, but they'll both get the job done.

    I'll take either one. To tell you the truth, at the ranges the .270's slightly flatter trajectory comes into play I doubt I'd take the shot unless I had a good rest. My ethics wouldn't allow it;).

    .270 vs. .308? Nothing short of a belted magnum can be trusted to make ethical kills on game squirrel size and up.

    There, now I've successfully meshed ethics with a caliber war. My work here is done.
