From the May/June 2019 RIFLESHOOTER magazine article “Separated at Birth” (Craig Boddington):

“Veterans like Jack O’Connor instantly saw it (.264 Win Mag) wasn’t significantly superior to the .270 Win., which had propelled a 130-grain .277-inch bullet at 3,060 fps since 1925.”

“As judged by Jack O’Connor 50 years ago, perhaps the ultimate in damning with faint praise, I don’t believe the .264 can do anything the .270 Win can’t do. I don’t see it making a major comeback, but it’s still a useful hunting cartridge. I’ll use it now and again and reminisce about bygone days, when I believed everything I read and thought the .264 had magical power.”
