Nothing wrong with the .30-06. I've had a couple over the years, but now have a special situation in my hunting stand where quick shots at deer crossing a woods road out to 350 yards are commonplace. The .270, shooting my special, 130grain handloads allows minor hold-over out to that distance and results in clean kills, dropping almost all deer in the road. My 140 grain Nosler Accubond also dropped a walking, 860 lb. bull at 275 yards a couple of years ago, less than 5 yards from the haul road, killing it quickly. I had felt a bit under-gunned prior to the kill, but would use it again.
