What factory ammo would you use for a 270 for whitetail, mule deer out to 500-600yrd? Horady LM 140sst?

    I shot winchester ballistic tips, accubonds and I here the new xp3 are real good. I never had any trouble at that distance with the either of those two. I reload now and have since sold my 270 so I am not up on the new factory loadings for it.

    When I Still Shot Factory Loads, I Used 140gr Hornady Btsp. They Grouped Pretty Good.

    The problem is each gun is different. My 270 would shoot winchester silver box a little better than Remington green box in 130 grn bullets.

    You will just have to try different brands to see what shoots best or get into reloading to achieve the most accurate load.
