Hello all, I'm new as of tonight to this forum. I just bought a 1967 mfg date German 270 Weatherby, and as far as I can tell it has a 1 in 12 twist, the later guns were 1-10. As a little background info, I've been reloading for years in other calibers.
Here's the question. I'm going to get some components ordered and I'm wondering what others have found accurate in bullet choices in this twist and caliber. I'll also appreciate your speeds, group size and powder data to go with your recommendations. I was going to get Barnes 130 TTSX's but the Barnes site warns that it won't stabilize with that twist. My understanding is I need a bullet that isn't going to be too long for it's weight and that Barnes TTSX 110's should be fine. I may go that route, but I would have preferred something just a bit heavier. Lead is okay, but I want it to stay together and not be too explosive. For that reason I'm hesitant to go to Berger. Your thoughts would be welcomed.
If anyone knows of a chart that compares bullet choice, speed, twist, rpms and stability you have my thanks.http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...lies/smile.gif
