.270 a very effective all around caliber. Worth setting up for reloading and you will multiply your selection and have loads for everything from small varmints to elk or even moose. You can begin with an inexpensive Lee loader outfit to see if you like reloading. When I was in the sporting goods business I used to tell my customers that you won’t save money by reloading but you will shoot a lot more for the same dollars. Looking foreward to seeing your first harvest with the new rifle.
