270 Win questions

I'm sure most people don't consider the 270 Win. a long range cartridge, but for those of you who are using it--

How far have you used it on deer?

What bullet are you using?

Thanks.

Re: 270 Win questions

Hi Timl.

Y have taken close shoot only up now. That beacause my hunt are in heavy wood. But the 270 still got power to clean kill a moose at 400yds. Know some good shooter that take shot on deer at 500yds. That depend a lot on your skill
and the quality of your weapon. For the bullet the 150gr nosler partition is my choose. Y hunt moose to so like havy bullet. But for deer only or over 200yds for bot (moose and deer) y will go for 140gr in accubond or balistic tip.
You just got to see what go best in your rifle.
Good hunting with your 270win.

Re: 270 Win questions

Hi Timl
I made the same question some days ago. About how far can I accurately shoot with my 270 win?
Have been recommended to shoot Berger VLD 150 grain to get better ballistic coeficient, and be able to shoot farther out.
Have you done upgrades to your 270 win?
There arent almost any threads about long range hunting with 270 win.
Good luck hunting with your 270 win. I love mine.

Re: 270 Win questions

I shot feral goats out to 550 yards with mine, 130gr ballistic tip at 3184FPS.


It worked well, 140 or 150gr bullet would be a better choice though

I have one and have used it for about 18 years in Wyoming. however i did change barrels over time i know have a 26" sheilan
i use 140 gr ballistic tips shouts around 3005 ft per second. I have killed mule deer as far as 550 yards one shot drop them dead in their tracks. however you still need to make the shot placement. far as the gun is concern it will kill deer out to 700-800 yards but the question is can you place the bullet wear it needs to be?
i go with 4 buddies and my guns nick name is the meat gun. and it has earned that name. fine a load that your gun likes then practice at the yardages that you want to shoot. alot

Re: 270 Win questions

It is a great caliber. I use shoot a .270WSM and it will roll anything short of a big bear. Your rifle can too as long as like anyone we keep an eye on the energy level at impact.
