Re: .270 Boat tail VS Non Boat tail
otis348 - I'm a 35 year 270 man. I only shoot BT bullets at larger game.
The whole idea of core separation is all immaterial. I have never had a deer size animal ever stop the bullet, so who cares if the bullet that hit the ground 200 yards on the other side of the deer still going 1000 fps only retained 70% of it’s weight.
IMO – Since I shoot allot Sierra SBT 140’s loaded at high speed is all you need for sub 400 lbs. Once you get above that class. Then start thinking about premium bullets.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
