    Question .270 WSM Weatherby for Sheep?

    I won this gun last fall, and now that I've been lucky enough to win a sheep tag, I would like some opinions on what you guys think of this thing for a sheep hunt. In my gun case I have a the .270WSM, .375 Rem Ultra Mag, Rem 30-06, and a .308. A few others, but those are the ones I'm considering for sheep. Ballistics seem good, but what do you guys think?

    Think about this, "I won a sheep gun, I won a sheep tag."
    I know what I would do. Go kill a sheep with my new sheep gun. Get a big one dh.

    those vangards are good solid rigs, not too light especially with that stock, but you can't flinch at the price. the 270 will give you a bit more range over your other rifles too
