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.
