Derek, have you tried the 130 TTSX in your .270? I tried some the other day, and they shot decent. I loaded only a few, but the Berger 140's shot like a house' afire. In seems that you are a fan of RL19 in .270 too. Mine shot the best with 19, with the Bergers, but I want to revisit the TTSX's with RL19. did you say you were shooting 57 grains, and 130 tsx ? That load must be smoking! ( gee, we should be in RELOADING) . Thanks, AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. 7STW.

P/S, what is the load with the 110 TSX? Thanks, 7STW.

The 130 TTSX shoots well in my same Ruger/Hart bbl 270. But I used H4350 with it and Re19 with the regular TSX, which is an outstanding killer. In my other 270, the 150 VLD is the ticket with IMR4350 and the Fed 215M primer. It was one of my wolf loads and I've posted the group pic several times. Measured .137" at 100 and .460 at 200 yrds.

Yes 57.0 gr Re19 pushing a 130 TSX.

Reloder 19 is one of the finest powders I've ever used in the 270 or 30.06. The latter is using Re19 with the 168 TTSX. And here's my little batch of 110 TTSX I used on that TX pronghorn: 58.0 gr H4350, 210M primer, Win brass

Re: Hornady SST

Nice Pics Derek..... 7stw, you know we're on the same page..lol. I have been doing some recent kills with the 130 grain sst's and they have been excellent 1 shot kills, but I have heard alot of bad news about the SST's also. All mainly saying the same thing. Grenading impacts... yet still haven't had it done yet, but don't want to bet a nice buck on that. I'll post a coupla pics up tonight on the coyotes I got in excess of 200 the past two weeks. Great results. But maybe that is all the SST is good for.... coyotes.

I am going to go with the VLD's this year and defenitely the 140 accubonds for my heavier hunts, thanks to 7stw.

Derek M., I notice that you have loads up for the ttsx with the 110 grain using H4350. Do you have any loads for the 130 grain TTSX using H4350? And why the 110 over the 130's? Also Just wondering....

Any experience with the Nosler Silver tip?

Re: Hornady SST

I used the superformance SST 130gr in my .270. It has great knock down power. Every deer has dropped. I did have some accuracy issues. The Hornady Customs are more accurate, but don't drop the deer like the sst.

I also used it in my 300win mag on a bull elk. Good accuracy and dropped him at 250 yards. There was a good pass through. I did shoot a whitetail doe at forty yards with Hornady Superformance SST 180 gr and it did not pass through. It seems like the bullet explodes on impact at extreme close range. At 100 yards it blows right through.
