Mine shoots clover leafs with H4831 and the 135 SMK. This web site has lots of data on the 270 WSM. http://www.shortmags.org/shortmags/

Re: Reloading for 270WSM

No problem spider. Also there is a feature article in the May issue of handloader on loading for the 270 WSM. They say that H4831 and RL22 give the best veolcity, I'd have to agree. What kind of rifle are you shooting? I have a model 70 SS bedded in a spruce green HS precision stock with a Zeiss conquest for glass. Good luck and please share your pet load with me when you finally find it.---MOA [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

H4831 is a big hit in my Browning(stock-out of the box other than the trigger)I ve found that the Hornady 150g sp w/flat base w/66 grs H4831 works the best so far.And I think Im gettin some speed there too..Still tryin, thoe this load has givin me a clover leaf at 200 yds.Not bad in my opinion.Also the RL22 seemed very close to the H4831 I still got better groups with the H4831 powder.Ill be Chrono'ing it soon I hope.Ill let you know what I get.
