Im thinking of picking up a browning BAR .270 Win SemiautoRifle with Leupold scope. Not sure what power scope im assuming a 3x9x40. Its my other bro in laws. he wants to sell it to me for 550. Is that a good price and is a 270 a good reliable easy to find caliber? i only shot 30-06s for hunting deer. My other bor in law has a 270 and he loves it. Bullet looks itty bitty though
Thanx
Rob

What vintage and grade? .270 is GTG for most of North America and is easy to find.

Knwing my bro in law its probably the next to or best one they make and its in perfect condition. hes pretty picky when it comes to guns.

I just bought a .270 for the reason that it is very flat shooting, reasonably powerful - just slightly lower than .308, and very common. I'm pretty sure it's in the top 5 most popular hunting calibers. It's a necked down 30-06 with a lighter bullet. Should be great for deer out to 500 yards or so.

I'll first in line to give a thumbs up for all Brownings...had a BAR and it shot as good as any bolt action...sorry I sold it

I'll be first to take it if you don't want it. Send me a PM

BTW---30-06 for deer? In Calif? Way overkill.

... not if you're going for one of those double-kills!
