    I use a 6.5x55 Swedish which is very similar to the 270. Just dawned on me today that my gun is 122 years old!

    We are limited in Ohio to straight wall. I currently have two setups rifled barrel shotgun and a bushmaster 450 scout edition.

    I have bipolar disorder and I hunt with either a .243 or a .45-70, depending on the mood I’m in.

    Where I am at in Michigan we are Shotgun or Straight walled cartridge. Currently using 350 Legend and liking it.

    Indiana has 2 sets of laws, one frollor public and one for private. Public requires basically pistol cartridges, I use the 357 Remington Maximum. Private can use more conventional high powered rifles, 243,270,6.5,30-06,etc.
    I don't have one of these rifles but my private property doesn't offer many shots over 200 yards anyway, so the 357 Max is totally adequate.

    In Illinois right now it is shotgun only, but they are about to change that. With that said, I have been using my 20 Browning A5 for the last 50 years, and when I go to Wisconsin I take my Enfield British 303 to hunt with.

    .270 was my 1st gun, then I started using my dad’s 30-30. Also have shot .223 in an AR-15. 30-30 by far is my favorite

I love hunting fishing and almost anything involved with the outdoors in Kentucky.
