Many shooters are familiar with the Remington M700 as being one of the best bolt-actions ever made. They’re also aware that the .308 cartridge and the M700 go so well together that they’ve practically become the status quo of the tactical precision rifle world. Though the .308 is without a doubt a perfectly good cartridge, few realize that there are other cartridges that go equally well or even better with Remington’s M700 action.

First, let’s take a look at the cartridge. Many bullet weights and designs are available for the .270Win, but it has always been at its best with a 130-grain bullet. I have long been a fan of the .270 130-grain and have used it for more than 30 years in a number of sporting rifles to take dozens of trophy deer and elk.
