Re: 270 wsm 165gr Matrix data

I'm currently shooting 150 bergers at about 2970fps. What would be the significant benefits of shooting the matrix 165's compared to the bergers. Keep in mind this is mainly a hunting rig, thanks. Also is it worth working with the rl19?

With 66gr I'm running 3053 fps with 10fps ES, around a 27.5in barrel. Going to work with it more this week and load some 175's.

bigngreen,

Are you using Federal 215 Magnum primers, or the 215 Gold Medal Match Magnum primers?

I'm new to the 270wsm world, but am wondering what kind of luck you've all had with the 4831sc? Also what bullets have worked?

Just the Federal 215 Magnum, I haven't been able to get my hands on Gold Medal locally. By the way just got the barrel on again and checked seating and COAL with 165's is 3.120 just touching the lands.

62 grains of H4831 under a 135 Sierra MK works very well for me.
All weather consistent, way sub MOA, easy on the shoulder.
CCI-br2, 2.970 col, .002 off lands. enjoy.
