    .270 or .308

    Looking at getting a new rifle, in between a .270 and .308. I like the .308 rounds, all my hunting buddies use .270. It would be a whitetail rifle, and paper puncher when I find the space. Mossberg atr has both at buds for $270.00. Thoughts? Experiences on the rounds?

    Flying and Transportation of Firearms.

    Has anyone had any experiences flying with firearms. I understand the TSAs rules. Understand the rules of the desired location. Just wondering how much of a pain it is, if it's safe for your firearms. Etc....
