Re: 270 WSM for Long Range Hunting?

Check out the ballistics of the 270 WSM pushing a 169.5 Wildcat with and around a .740 BC at 2950-3000 fps.
The 270 cal definately doesn't get much love in public but everyone has one!!!

    What is this load you speak of for the 270wsm??? I would love to know more since I am in the process of maybe getting rid of it for a 7mm mag.

    I don't have any load yet as I can not get my grubby hands on any bullets till Paul gets some cranked out. The guys I've talked to or seen who have them shoot them in the 2900-3000 fps range, it would negate the need for a 7mm IMO. Hopefully we'll see some changes to the .277 market next year, there are some exciting things that royinidaho is working on to help us all in this needed bullet, Wildcat bullets will hopefully get them into production soon also.
    I know a couple guys who have had good results with the Wildcat in a 1-10 twist but if guys have 270's barreled for them they go with a faster 1-9 or 1-8 twist.
