Interesting thread for me as the only thing I do is load and shoot 270 win. I have two very nice custom rifles
and the gunsmith's rec'd load was pretty far beyond the published "max" in all the reloading guides. over the past 3 years I have tried quite a few powders and bullets and for my gun, Neshika action, Shillen barrel, I can push a 130 grain 3,200+ fps and have now settled on a Nosler 140 Accubond at about 3,100 to 3,120. The chart says that should be an effectie round pretty far out.
I don't even know what is measured by "Point Blank Range". could someone explain? thank you.
But in response to the very start of this thread, "Yes" with the right 270 you can load to a much higher pressure and velocity. by the way, I use Norma cases.
As I often hear when people talk about their 270's I enjoy .3 to .4 MOA off the bench and ususally below .6 MOA with my Tripod hunting rig.
