Big Game Hunting Podcast

Nov 24, 2022

I’ve got another cartridge comparison for you today: the 7mm-08 Remington vs the 270 Winchester. Both are popular and effective centerfire rifle cartridges with dedicated fan bases, but important details about their performance unfortunately get overlooked or simply lost in the shuffle. In fact, despite their big differences in outward appearance, the two cartridges are almost shockingly similar in performance in some areas. Even so, there’s some important differences to keep in mind and each is better suited for different hunting tasks. In this episode, I’m investigate the 7mm-08 vs 270 debate in detail and provide some insight into which cartridge is better suited for common hunting situations so you can make an informed decision on which one will work best for your individual needs as a hunter or shooter.
