Started looking at rifles 3 months ago, Have never hunted. Recent politics have started my wife and I thinking we should buy some weapons. Along the way my two sons have become very interested in shooting and hunting. I decided after researching that I wanted to get three 270 rifles. My first was purchased 4 weeks ago: a near new Remington Model 70 270 with a BOSS. My boys and I have found a hobby we all enjoy doing together. The more I read the more I'm unsure of my caliber selections. I bought another (second) 270 at a gun show this weekend. And about 600 rounds of 130 and 100 grain ammo at $10 a box. My friend cleaned it up and checked it out: he says it is probably 70s vintage very seldom shot model 700 Remington 270. He scared me when I brought the gun home..... he told me an old trick is to fire a rifle several times to hide barrel rust then sell it at one of these shows....... instead he found a very sweet rifle. I'm reading a lot about other calibers and am thinking I wished I would have spread out my calibers instead of planning on just 3 270s. Tonight I've read several posts that make me wish I'd consider a smaller caliber..... For instance a 7mm.08 or even a 25.06 or 243. Lots of stuff to consider! This last rifle will be for my 15 year old son who is tall/lanky; also my wife may shoot it as well. All 3 of these rifles will probably be used 80% + shooting range, <20% hunting. If I could start over I think I'd spread my calibers out.... like 243, 7mm-08 and 308. But I know the 270 is an extremely accurate round. Thoughts on the 243, 25.06 or 7mm-08 for our third rifle? Thanks again.
