Yeah Gophers! LOL!
That's a great cartridge. You can use it to hunt practically anything.

I will say that anything that I have shot at with that caliber has never went any further, and the gophers vaporize.Posted Image

beautiful rifle... I don't know much about the caliber. Is that just like a standard 270 but on steroids? It should be a flat shooter, and hard hitter. Just so I can get my head around the caliber... how would that compare to say a Remington 7mm magnum?

Flatter and faster. My 130's are coming across the chrony at just over 3500 fps. The 140's are running 3420 and the 150's are 3300 fps. I am 8 to 9 inches low at 400 yards and 23 low at 500 with the 130 grain. The 150's are a sledge hammer for the caliber. It has more jam at 500 yards than a 300 Winchester has if the 300 is shooting a 150 grain too. The partitions and the grand slams dig real deep. They shoot the Hornadys well, and I have had good success with the Speer hotcores too. I have a few thousand of the Nosler 150's that I am going to have to build a load with. Just waiting for a decent day without gale force winds. Target pictures will be coming.
