.270 WSM Load Help

I have a 270 WSM.. my first one. It is built on a M7O action with a 26" 1:10 twist Hart barrel. It is set up to stabilze the 165 gr matrix if I want to shoot a heavy pill. Was hoping you would share a few loads you are having good luck with. Thanks for the help.

Re: .270 WSM Load Help

I start at around 62gr of Retumbo and work up, I usually settle somewhere very close to 66gr with the 165 Matrix.
