Finally, a load for my .270 WSM

I finally found a decent shooting load tonight. I loaded up some 150g BTís with 62g RL-22, WLRM, 2.820" put 3 shots into 5/8" at 100 yards. 63g and 2.850" put 3 shots into 3/4". This is a HUGE improvement over RL-19 with 130 BT and Magpro with 140 SST as well as Fed primers. Average with those comboís was about 2-3 inches at 100 yards. Rifle is a Savage 16FSS. I did not get to chronograph them tonight for lack of time. Should be doing around 3,000fps and with a BC of .496, it should be a real deer killer out to 600!!!
