I'm a heathenist then, lol. The .270 has been my favorite deer rifle (in savage model 10) for a loooooooonnng time.A 270WIN should do the trick for a lot of tasks, even is it is a heathen on this Forum! We all have our passions & preferences. We tend to fill them with what strikes us at the time. Hope the deal was truly sweet! Like hombre asked..."whatjagit" as far a model?
