Maybe this is the unpopular opinion but here it goes. I know the caliber isn't an issue, you like both. I could make a case on that but I won't. I think it is more than just a 1lb difference. You get a trigger tech trigger, a very rigid stock, limb saver recoil pad (which I really like), carbon wrapped barrel, cerakoted action and barrel metal. All of which are a step in the right direction compared to your .270 in my opinion. Plus its a little lighter.
Agree with all but the rigid stock part. The forearms of every ridgeline I’ve handled have been quite flexible and the grip is pretty lousy.
