270 WSM shooting Hornady 130 SST bullets

Shooting my Mod 70 270WSM . 65.5grs of IMR 7828 these bullets shot very poorly. Also shooting 110 V-max 68.5grs of RE#19 these loads shot fantastic. Any one have experience with Hornady's SST line of bullets.

I've had good luck with the 150 grain SST's. Haven't tried the 130 grainers.

best groups at 68 and 69.5 grains

brass 2.1
overall length 2.7
rem brass
magpro
cci mag primers

Re: 270 WSM shooting Hornady 130 SST bullets

I shoot the 140 sst and magpro, never found an accurate load yet.

I shoot the 110 vmax and varget, always very accurate.

I am going to try the 135 seirra matchkings again, this time with some H4350 and Magpro.

I am starting to reach my end with Magpro, I get great velocities, but even backing off I never have gotten a really accurate load with it, in the 270wsm, 25-06, or 7mmRem.

Re: 270 WSM shooting Hornady 130 SST bullets

Mag Pro : That is very interesting I got high velocities with it in my 6x284 but marginal accuracy. Poor accuracy with it in my 270WSM shooting the 130 SST. Dang if I could only shoot in my back yard I could spend more time testing.
