270WSM Long Action 150 Berger VLD`s

with the bullet seated in the long action so only the boattail is below the neck in the case,how fast you think they would go in a 28 inch bbl??

Definitely fast enough!!!

Should shoot along with 270 Whby, 270 Win AI, and even a hot shooting 270 Win. The 150 ought to get some where around 3200. But that's just off the top of my head. No real science involved.

Have any of you found the berger available yet for the 270's? If so, where have you found them? Midway and Cabela's don't offer them yet.

I'm guessing here also, but after looking at the velocity figures I find, 3200fps should be attainable with that length barrel. Looks like the slower burning powders are going to be your best bet.
I haven't found the Bergers yet either. I think you can put an order in directly to Berger. I saw the phone number mentioned in another thread here. The other day when I was on Midway looking for them, I did see that Nosler is coming out with a 110gn AccuBond for the .270. Probably for the 6.8SPC shooters.
With my Coyote M70 in .270WSM I'm getting .5" and better with 66.0gn of RL22/CCI BR2's/130gn NBT and 61.0gn or IMR4350/CCI BR2's/135gn SMK. Haven't chrono'd any loads yet, but that's coming soon.
Anybody else got any load data for the .270WSM they're willing to share? JohnnyK.
