Re: Next Sin Cartridge?
I am about as big of a 270 fan as exists anywhere, BUDLIGHT may top me but not by much. The problem with the 270 is that we have been a victim of its success. According to Brian at Berger Bullets, the 270 market is trapped by legions of 1 in 10 twist barrels that are currently in existence. The 1 in 10 in a 270 apparently will not accurately stabilize a bullet with more than a 530bc. Hence the Berger .530 bc 150 gr offering. To be effective at the superranges that this board specializes in, the bullet has to be north of .600 bc and the velocity over 3200fps in this size round.
So as sad as that is for me to say- a 270 sin without a 1 in 9 twist barrel and a manufacturer bold enough to mold a .650 bc 155gr bullet, would be a sin.
So i vote for the 7mm. Ill buy a 6,5 later.
Just dont tell Jack O'Conner if you see him, that I'm a traitor.
