WHO...thinks up this stuff...!?!
Uncle Mike, we have a whole new crop of newbies, every year. All sorts of "What if...?" questions arise.
Sure, some are on the silly side. But anytime safety is involved, I think folks oughta be calm, polite and instructive--even if it's the hundredth time around.
Hey, I've been messing with guns for almost seventy years. You think I haven't heard more than my fair share of repeats?
Edit-correction. Seventy years; no "almost". I first shot a .22 in 1940, even before I got my first BB gun.
Interesting, Runningman, I wonder what made them choose a outdated case as the parent for the .270Win.?
"If you run out of .30-06 and the zombies are closing in, you can just switch to .270Win."..."that's why .30-06 is a better gun".
^I am not saying that how the OP feels, but that is likely how the idea was planted. Of course that fails to take a little detail into consideration...why do you have .270Win. if you don't have a rifle chambered for it; and if you do, why not shoot it out of that instead?
Totally agree Art....you would think that IF a person had elevated to the point of firing/using a firearm, the basic rule, of using the ammunition the particular firearm in question was designed for,would not even be a question!
But like you said, there are those.......
and with safety in mind.......
ehhh, been a day already....
hehehehehehehehe...that's too funny, Mav!
Interestingly, it doesn't appear to be listed as an unsafe combination.
But just to be sure, call the manufacturer of your firearm.
Mike, that's why .35Whelen is the best, you never know when you might come across a glowing pile of .338-06, .30-06, .280, .270, 6.5-06, .25-06, 6mm-06, .22-06, you're set (though .375-06 might be a problem).
ooh, I have an idea....fin stabilized 270 projectiles...
for when your all out of ammo for that -06 and you just so happen to have a boat load of FS .270 SA ammo on hand......
I'll let you figure out the acronyms....
that's what the Glock hammer/pistol is for......
I have that happen all the time.
