Re: Hey Guys Help the Newbie out!!!
I don't plan on a bullet tumbling, I was replying to your comment about the bullet "penciling through" which would be a rare occurrence if it ever happened.
I have read hear and on sniper hide of people claiming to be getting 2700 FPS with a 175 SMK. Also most factory 270's with factory ammo weren't getting 3000 FPS with a 130 grain bullet. I'd still take the bigger heavier bullet over the lighter smaller diameter bullet, because it has more momentum to transfer and a larger frontal area.
I have a 270 , but mine is not stock and has a 29" Krieger barrel and it gets 3140 with 140 grainers ahead of 63 grains of H-1000
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
