Re: Just a little teaser

Looks like a little round I call a 270 AX. Except its based on a 300 Dakota instead of the 7mm Dakota.

Its a great round, basically the same performance as a 270 STW but with shorter OAL which works better in some standard length magazine boxes.

Only drawback is bullet selection. Berger needs to get that 170 gr out!!! Matrix bullets would be a great choice for this velocity range as well.

Kirby.

The 270 Montana is based of the 300 Dakota, similar to your AX, but I think a little less case capacity. I bumped the shoulder back abut .008 and decreased the diameter about .003 with close to the same taper. I'm going with a 40* shoulder and hoping to get a .330 long neck to ease the throat wear. The reason I decreased the case capacity was that the factory brass was a few thou smaller than the Dakota specs. I think this will help with case strength and life and it will need minimal fire forming after the initial sizing. I'm hoping that I can do load development and fire forming at the same time.

Matrix has a 170 gr bullet and CEB has a 165 gr bullet. Hopefully Berger will come online with a good heavy hybrid but I'm not holding my breath.

Ed,

Thanks and glad you like it. I think it's pretty to cool to stamp a wildcat with the Montana name, especially super charged one like this. I've got a couple other wildcat ideas as well

With a variety of bullets coming out for it, folks are recognizing the true potential of the 270. History passed it over the first time, but its Finally being seen in a new light.
