    I'd say the .270 Win is more than up to the tasks for which you've purchased it, but I agree that the cartridge is one factor in a list of variables, and you've addressed that intelligently, now it's up to you to practice. You will enjoy maximum versatility from the .270 if you handload. Have you already purchased the rifle, or is it one of the cartridges under consideration?

    A .270 should be sighted at 200 yards but if you don't have a lot of experience, and it sounds like you don't, be ethical and don't try to shoot beyond your comfort zone. Don't over-estimate your comfort zone either. Most hunters shoot half a box of ammo a year and I would recommend that these guys keep their shots closer than 250-300 yards.

    The .270 will do all those things easily.
    You however need training to do it.

    yes and yes the 270 is a very versitile round you can confedently kill just about anything you choose to hunt out to 400 to 500 yards easy and to solve the tearing up coyote pelts go to a lighter grained bullet such as sierras 90 grain hp or check out frangiblebullets.com they have a very nice 95 grain bullet that is copper and tin powders compressed into a bullet that shatters on impact and will not exit a coyote sized animal leaving the pelt intact its not all about caliber as some people believe its in bullet design and selection

    In my opinion the .270 is probably one of the most popular and most effective deer guns of all time. 200 yards is a "gravy" shot in most hands. Don't forget that you do need to practice though. 200 yards is a long way for the inexperienced. Now, for varmints, if you are talking about coyote and such it would depend on what you want to do with the pelts. If you just want to make them dead, it is more than capable. If you want a marketable pelt left over...I don't know. Some deer that I have shot and seen shot with a .270 have a quite impressive hole in them.

    Yes. By the way, I've never heard of anyone going out and recovering their prarie-dog and eating it. My .270 makes 200+ yd.shots easy, with some practice, your's will too.

    I have used my .270 to take deer and elk at ranges from 30 ft to 500 yds. As Clay likes to say, BANG, FLOP! It is also a very easy gun to shoot with minimal recoil. Everyone else is right there won't be much left of the varmints and you won't be getting top dollar for coyote pelts.
