Well, it's a Remington 700....so it should shoot really well.  One of our members 'Trigger29' has a .270 wsm (but not a remmy).  Perhaps he will offer some insight on loads, distance and so on.
 
I would bet money that you will be very pleased with your choice....

I had a tikka .270 wsm that I should have kept............wasn't the purdiest gun but it shot great and the trajectory is phenominal !
 
Mine sighted in with 140 grain Win. Accubonds would shoot 6" low at 300 yrds sighted in dead on at 100 ........which I realize is not what it should have done..........but it would do it all day long !! I shot about 6 deer with it at various ranges and all but one dropped on the shot...........and that one made  2 hops and went down !! Very impressive round !

The 270 wsm I have is a Model 70. It was not the caliber but when Winchester closed its Conn. plant it was offered as a replacement for the rifle on my order. I am glad the gentleman at Winchester talked me into this cal.  They are about 325 FPS faster than a .270. With a ballistic curve thats like a 22-250. It shoots very flat and hits very hard. It has taken 2 Antelope with instantaneous results.
