Powder/Bullet Choice 270 Win

I'm running a 26 inch barrel on a Browning A Bolt, 270 win. I plan on shooting 130 and 140 Accubonds and Triple Shocks. Help me out with some suggestions on powders, I'd really like to try to get these to run at over 3100, could probably go 3200 with the long tube.

Accurate Magpro, R25?! Help me out.

Re: Powder/Bullet Choice 270 Win

Just read an article in Guns magazine. You can check it out online for free. The author of the story suggested RL22, H4831sc, Ramshot Hunter, and H4350. Those would be the ones to give a try according to the article. I think he used CCI primers too. Welcome to LRH by the way. I know we used IMR 4064 w/ Nosler 150 ballistic tips.

I use 63 gr RL 22 with Fed 215 magnum primers and get 3080 FPS with a 140 gr accubond out of a 22" tube.

Sorry, I misread the original thread, this load data is for a WSM.

Best accuracy has been IMR 4350 for me.

My Winchester gives great results with AA 4350.

Re: Powder/Bullet Choice 270 Win

My sons 22 inch barrel 270 just loves h4831sc pushing a 130 grain sst. It shoves them at 3060fps it is a compressed load but has no pressure signs even when it is hot out.

Good luck, Jason
