What kind of velocity do you think I can get out of a 22 inch barrel ? This looks very interesting. thanks in advance.

Re: 165 gr VLD in .270 Winchester?

Back when wild cat made the 169.5 gr. 277 vld I used MLR primers r-22 and 7828 ssc for my testing. The top speed out my my 29 inch barrel was 2950's The best accurancy was right at 2900. I never bought h-1000 or r-25 I suspect that I could have got a little more speed in my long barrel. Wild cat folded and I never got any more 169's

I predominantly just use 150 spbt's right at 3080 fps for big game


My varminting .277 is the 115 hpbt shot with h4350 right at 3400 fps It is a good round I buy them bulk of 500 from Midway. I go through 100's a day Prairie Dog hunting

Re: 165 gr VLD in .270 Winchester?

So I made it out to shoot some load today. I went with RL-17 on the 165 gn matrix bullets seated to my mag length.
I found a sweat velocity and ok accuracy to start testing loads on.
my nod was:
51.0gn velocity avg 2859 fps and SD of 15
51.5gn velocity avg 2889 fps and Sd of 21
These were three shots groups were right at 1" not go good but looks good for velocity. I will be testing some loads around this charge and see if a can get the SD and group down.

Also this is out of a pac nor 1-10" 26" barrel.

Those are some good looking numbers, never thought of R17 but I have seen in do some near miracles in some cartridges

R-17 is really fast powder try imr 7828, h-1000 r-25
