Godless But Not Foreign

Despite the protestations of certain parties, .270 Winchester is an American cartridge.

For if it were European it would be called 7x65mm...

If it were Canadian or English it would be called .277.

Only America! uses Imperial measures and rounds off the caliber.

The history of the round seems to be... Winchester designs it for their new Model 54 in 1925.  Jack O'Connor writes about it because he liked his Model 54 a lot.  People read what Mr O'Connor wrote and it becomes popular.  Huzzah!
