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.”

From the April-May 2019 FIELD & STREAM magazine column “Rifles” (David Petzal):

“A Big Game Rifle Should Weigh 8 Pounds With Scope

Both Jack O’Connor and Warren Page agreed on this, and they agreed on very little else, so if I got a rifle that weighed 8 1/2 pounds, I fretted and obsessed and lost weight and watched my hair fall out.”

From the June 2019 GUNS magazine article “Best Elk Cartridge?” (Wayne van Zwoll):

“But doubts vanished as sportsmen of stature used the .270 — most notably Jack O’Connor. He liked it and said so.”
