Hi lje70. FixYa actually does not have a dedicated firearms category, which is why you were unable to find an appropriate category to post. As your question is currently filed under "FixYa" it won't be shown to the best Experts.
I recommend posting your question again. Make sure that you do not click "Get Immediate Assistance". On the page where you enter your question details/product, click the link that says you can't find your product. Then, choose "Camera, Camcorders, & Accessories" in the first column, and either "Rangefinders" or "Spotting Scopes" in the second column. These are the only firearm-related categories on our site, and will give you the best chances of meeting up with an Expert that can answer your question.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Your Winchester 70 (for which you did not list a caliber) is likely not the same as your 270 (which is a caliber, not a model number) If you look on the barrel (generally stamped right below the iron sight or just before the barrel joins the gun), you should find the caliber of the rounds for expected use.
If you did not buy the weapons new, there is a possibility that one of them was re-chambered for a "wildcat" round. In that case a factory brass may be longer than what you need, preventing you from closing the action.
Any competent gun store employee or a local gun smith can easily find the correct ammunition for your weapon.
Remember....the model such as for example a Remington 700 is a model. That weapon is chambered for many different rounds but you cannot interchange them.

The ejector pin becomes flattened with sharp edges... it shaves brass, the brass helps stick the pin which is also penned out and a bit larger now. I took mine out and honed it so that it did not shave brass and would slide easily in the hole.... Make sure your spring is back in before you try the pin (You want something to push it back out). Most important... don't let the pin and spring get away from you. You can look on a chambered and ejected cartridge to see exactly where the bras is being shaved from. In my case it was the very back, outer flange, indicating the ejector pin.
Good luck ... hint... really use your eyes
