Out of all three WSM's the 270 is the number one sellerI'm not a 270 guy, so I may not understand the niche this cartridge fills. It always seemed to me to be one of the least useful WSM's as the 7mm Rem mag is the 800 pound gorilla in that zone of calibers.
One was dead a few hundred feet per second faster? Who cares huh! Dead is dead, how do they taste?Took my son mule deer hunting this year. He shot his with a 270 WSM-dead
Shot mine with a 270 Win-dead.
I don't see any difference

the 300 is second
the 7mm is last because of the 7 rem mag.
If you have not got a 270 wsm then you will never enjoy what we do that do have one.
It is a very good caliber and very accurate.
And it is so close to being as fast as the Weatherby for half the cost.
Fair enough, but the .270WSM with hot enough loads actually trumps the 7mm, and the 7mm WSM which has failed in the marketplace actually does too. I would call the .270WSM about halfway between the standard .270 and the weatherby, and also must note that it's hard to achieve factory velocity with handloads. I have a Tikka .270WSM, a good friend of mine has a Tikka .270 Win and we've hunted together several times with these outfits. Our choice of projectile makes a bigger difference to results than these cartridges - he uses 110 gr hollow points and I use 130 or 140 grain controlled expansion soft noses.I'm not a 270 guy, so I may not understand the niche this cartridge fills.
