Made from an actual once fired .270 cartridge with a real solid copper bullet as the nib.
The .270 Winchester (or 6.8x65mm) was developed by Winchester Repeating Arms Company in 1923 and unveiled in 1925 as a chambering for their bolt-action Model 54. The cartridge is based upon the .30-06 Springfield. When loaded with a bullet that expands rapidly or fragments in tissue, this cartridge delivers devastating terminal performance.
The .270 Winchester became a very popular deer and elk cartridge due to the widespread praises of gunwriter Jack O'Connor who used the cartridge for 40 years and espoused its praise on the pages of Outdoor Life.
While not an immediate success, over the succeeding decades and especially in the post-World War II period, the .270 Winchester attained great popularity among gun owners and hunters, ranking it among the most popular and widely used cartridges worldwide
