    Hey so I have an old Remington 721 my dad gave me in .270 win and I’m going to be going elk hunting for the first time with my uncle this year. I am looking at a primary arms 1-14 scope that on the website says the holds are calculated for .308, 5.56, and 30-06. I know .270’s parent case is 30-06 but I’m not sure if the holds would still work or not. Can anyone give me some advice? If it won’t work then what are some scopes that will work well with .270?

    Those holds aren’t even going to be completely accurate for those calibers depending upon grain of bullet and how hot they’re loaded.

    Yes , you just need to know where exactly the hash marks are really zeroed for

    Doesn’t matter.

    Set your rifle up for maximum point blank range.

    All you’ll need is the center

    Example i shoot a 123 grain sst at 2815 fps set up for a 5″ mpbr.

    [Plugh the numbers into a ballistics calculator ]( and if I zero at 221 yards I am no more than 2.5 inches high out to that point and 2.5 inches low at 260.

    Out to 260 yards I consider myself point and shoot. Past that I shoot a touch high. Or I would. I haven’t ever needed to shoot that far at an animal.

    270 is a little too light for elk in my opinion
