It is my understanding that a longer bullet (heavier) needs more spin but at what point does a fast spin affect a lighter bullet accuracy........... Oh and this is only a whitetail gun the distance will depend on what kind of groups i can get the gun to shoot with factory ammo for now
I had a Mod 70 with a 10" twist. I think all 270s made by any and all have a 10" twist. Case lots ? We hand loaders have done that when we buy quantity's of brass or powder. Why ? Its a pride thing we want those bug eye groups produced on our own reloading bench. But for your use, your splitting hairs. That Sako should produce MOA and that will be good enough to get what you want out of your rifle. What is the price on a case of ammo BTW ? What kind of glass does this rifle have on it ?

Here's a couple ammo links that offer some legitimate LR stuff for the 270 WSM, don't know what is in stock but give them a ring. Gunwerks has the 150 VLD's loaded Gunwerks - Ammunition

HSM has Berger 150's and 130's loaded for Best of the West, I have used the 130's and shot them over a crony and they where better than expected as far a ES was concerned and they where right on velocity wise. And you can order bulk!The Hunting Shack, Inc. - 270 WSM

I would order two boxes of each and test them then order a case if one is up to snuff for LR work, one of the guys at work shoot the HSM stuff out of his 7mm and it is very good, I don't think I could much better.

I have a Zeiss conquest 4.5x14x50 with the rapid Z 800.....I agree getting a case would be the same price as a reloading kit but right now I dont have the time to do any load development BUT I will be reloading next year for sure...I just ordered 2 boxes of the hornady custom so I'll see how that goes does anyone have any experience with the accuracy out of them...................................Thanks to EVERYONE for all of the info yall have given me

This day and age its unlikely this ammo won't perform very well. I just can't stomach the price.I actually think I'm getting a headache now just thinking about it ?Oh crap now I'm getting nauseous ! What's happening to me ? I've started sweating,shaking.Just what is that smell ? STOP please stop !!!!!
