Looking for good reload advice.

I will be hunting white tail, Plan on shooting out to 500yds at most. I will be reloading my own shells now and need some advice. I have been using a browning a bolt 270 win. with Remington core lock shells 130gr. I plan on practicing this year with my new scope out to 500 yds. I just don't know what tips to start with and where to get them, or what may shoot good and have knock down power at 500 yds. any help would be great. Also somewhere to get brass , and powder type suggestions.

Dukester1,
Good whitetail round. I would start with the 130 grain AccuBond from Nosler and use Alliant's RL22, IMR and/or H4831, and IMR and/or H4350. All are great performers for the .270Win. As for brass, I'd go through MidwayUSA if I couldn't procure it locally. I mostly used CCI BR2 primers when I shot this round. JohnnyK.

I feel the accubond is amuch better bullet if your are concerned about meat damage. The ballistic tips tend to blood shoot alot of meat even with good bullet placement.

the accubonds are a bonded bullet that will kill clean and not ruin alot of meat.

I've always had better accuracy with the Accubond. I've never been able to get the Ballistic tips to shoot much under .75MOA. Never had that problem with the AB's.

Re: Looking for good reload advice.

My current load is 140 AB's over H4831sc at 3050fps. This load has worked well on whitetails under 200 yards, no longer shots yet, and caribou to almost 400. No recovered bullets but a few pieces of jacket.

I've thought about trying VLD's but the AB load works so well it's hard to get motivated about trying something new. I used ballistic tips prior to AB's and they do tend to grenade.

I'm planning on stretching my 270 win out a bit this year. I'd like to get some good field data to 600 and maybe find a willing deer this fall.
