Re: Remington 700 SPR .270 WSM
[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Just back from Whitetail hunting with above 270 Win. in Pa. Friends and I are none res but have been donating to Pa. Game commission for 30 yrs. Opertunity came to test 270 Win./58gr H4831 SC / 150gr Nosler Partition on ~100 lb antlerless deer. Shot was 100yds range, slightly quartering away. Placed one round high in lungs, it passed thru both and there was no bullet to recover. The deer attempted 8-10 bounds and spray painted the snow at each, pretty good.
Opening day (Dec 1st) there was ~1 foot of
new and arriving snow in NW Pa. The Pa. Game Commisson has recently altered game laws. The hunting region the Club we belong to is in, has rules for min. 4 points or better PER SIDE.
Therefore we, as many hunters were encouraged to do, applied for and received anterless liciences along with Buck tags. In fact I was presented with a 4 point (2X2) buck and had to say Shoo. Then along came a buck and doe combo. The Buck had a fairly good rack. An I busied myself with 7x Binoculars checking points the Doe slips away. Mr Buck was easy 6 points (3X3) but as the pair moved past for the life of me I could not detect a forth point [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img] O.S. the brow tine has to be over an inch to make legal too. Because of the rules that lucky Buck got a pass on life, Oh well. The 4th deer by my location was the large bauldy and was therefore punished with extream predidious forthwith, one shot , two holes, one kill [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Anyway the point of this follow up on .277 bullets is that if one has a .270 Win (oldster) or newer .270 WSM they should seriously consider Primium Nosler Partition
and mid to heavier wt bullets. No doubt the 130 gr. bullets would do but at short range
there may be only one entry hole (and a mess). The deer could not have been any deader and when compared at meat processor
to many other deer the yield in meals for my deer would easily exceed what we witnessed there. Oh and may I dare say seemed a lot of those hunters could benefit from a little shooting practice in any caliber rjb [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
