Re: .270 WSM All-purpose load

Well I had similar luck on the elk, they seem to be a little too soft and coming apart too quick. It devastated his vitals on the one side but didnít want to push through or knock down. It had similar results on My deer it killed great, just came apart too fast and didnít pass through. I think there just moving too fast with the magnumís and if you make a bad shot youíll have a hard time finding your critter.

Re: .270 WSM All-purpose load

My problem was the failsafes were to hard & didnt expand I thought the 06 was to slow for them.
back to the 270 bullet I really like the Matrix 165 but I think the 1 in 10 may be on the edge of stabilizing them I shoot a 1 in 9 rockcreek and they shoot real good. as far as the load I don't have a 270 wsm mine is a custom real close to the 270 wsm it is a 270 AMP (7mm dakota necked down ) 69.5 retumbo fed 215 169.5 wildcat touching the lands
I still have a five hundred wildcats left probably a little more than 1/2 the barrel life I would like to try the 170 berger if I can get my hands on some.
but I really like the Matrix as well and they seem easier to get.
