What hunting rifle to use

Last night my wife and i went to a ladies house that i work with to pick up cookie dough i bought from her granddaughter. Her husband and i got to chatting about hunting like we always do lol. He tells me he has a savage .308 that bought brand new last year and shot one time. He said it kicked to hard for his old bones. And offered it to me to use this season wants to trade me for my savage. 270 if i like it not sure what one to use this season

I would say it depends on what you're hunting. For deer I would use the 270.

I'd stick with the .270, it's more than capable. Personally i use a savage chambered in .243 win.
