    Browning A-Bolt series: hunter, micro-hunter,stainless stalker

    Remington 700 CDL

    Winchester Sporter LH

    Savage 110, 111 ,116

    The .270 is more of a long range deer size game cartridge, but I have 2 that I use here in Georgia :)

    What he said about who makes them works for me.

    As for what it's not big enough for.... it's a short list. Big brown bears, bison, and possibly moose. I've heard of a lot of people using them for elk, so there's not a lot you can't hunt with it in NA. Good choice of cartridge.

    I've used a 270 most of my life with exception of a magnum chambered weatherby for the Wilds of Montana. It is a great all around cartridge. Your going to run into very few animals you can take with one.

    The previous list of manufactures is a good one. Might want to look at the Ruger M77 LH

    I forgot Ruger made a LH M77! Never really paid too much attention, since I don't shoot LH, though. Definately worth checking out in .270.

    I'd go with the Remington 700 KS Mountain rifle. It's probaly good for Deer, Elk, Bore, and Moose. Not to good for Carribou or Bear.

    Look at Savage rifles. I've found all of mine to be very accurate. 270 is great for deer sized critters, a tad overkill on vermin. With proper bullet selection, bigger critters could be taken as well (e.g. elk, black bear).

    Re: re: I need a rifle.

    Unless it's the kind of vermin you usually eat, that's the entire point! :twisted:
