Was thinking the winchester accubond ct or xp3 but was leaning toward the accubond just because it makes a little bigger wound. does hornady make a factory road for the 270wsm? is see 270win but not wsm.
Sorry bud I'm getting older and so are my eyes I red Win somehow --on the 270Wsm here is a factory ammo chart (most common) for your rifle, The dark yellow highlight under the BC on the chart shows if its too low for extended ranges. the bright yellow highlight shows a BC too high for the load/bullet combo for extended ranges.
hope this is useful.
according to the chart shows the Win supreme accubond ct 140 gr shows 3200 vel bc 0.472 bright yellow(to high extended ranges) a drop 37" at 500 yds-- zero@ sea level shows 137 (37"@100 yd zero) and 237 (37 "@200yd zero) and a -.04 inch per 1000k in elevation
