How does this cartridge compare to the regular .270? I noticed in my ignorant zeal that the Tikka Lite I have uses the .270 WSM.

Thanks!

i have never shot either but it seems the WSM is more powerful in a shorter case. it has more powder capacity

never shot the 270, but i have a 300WSM. Compares to the the standard 30 cal magnum but with a short action.

Not too bad, ammo cost is a bit more though.

It cost about 10% more, is harder to find, but gives you about 5% better performance, to some it's worth it, to others... you can look up ballastics charts at Federal's website.
