270 wsm ammo
The 270 WSM, or 270 Winchester Short Mag, was designed and went into production in 2002. Usually used in bolt-action rifles, 270 Short Mag excels at hunting coyotes, hogs, and deer.
Some people are building them on AR platforms, too, although the magnum can be hard on those if not beefed up to a more robust configuration.
It has notably improved ballistics over similar cartridges, and 270 WSM ammo can be found in a wide variety of grains and bullet types, making it not just a hunting round but an excellent target round.
Chambered in a short-action, the barrels are typically around 24 inches.
