I do not really like the short mags. I like speed. I own a 270 win. 270 Wby and 270 Wsm. The WBY is my favorite and the WSM runs a close second. I have actually been thinking about necking a 264 Win. mag up to 270. The faster, the better.Why do you guys value the short action over the long so much? Is it just for the reduction in flex, helping accuracy or what? As far as I think ,the 20% power gain doesn't off set the difference in cost when compare to the 270 Win. Am I missing something? Not being a wiseass, just would like to understand, as the 270 Win has served me quite well through the years.
The Short Mag craze is a gimmic, in my opinion. The ultra mag was the last craze and now the short mag is the craze. From a manufacturing standpoint, a short action caliber is easier to make. The shorter the action, the more forgiving it is.
