Tell your .270 WSM experiences, please.

I have recently begun working with a Win. Coyote Lite in .270 WSM and would appreciate learning what you have to relate about the rifle and the cartridge.

I plan to use it for medium range white tail hunting, out to maybe 500 yds. So far, only tried the Speer 130 Spitzer on paper.

What say you??

Thanks,
Jim

I have no experience with the cartridge, but I am fond of it. It is a perfect whitetail sniper , in fact, I am in the market for one myself. Can't decide if I want to build one from scratch, or buy a good factory rifle like you just bought. I love those coyotes, and I wish that I had bought one that I had my hands on last spring. That one had a laminated stock, stainless barrel, and black action, and it was in 270 WSM. I think you have a great combo, and need to get some practice DRAGGING. Enjoy.

Re: Tell your .270 WSM experiences, please.

I load for 3 of them. 2 featherweight Model-70's, & 1 Coyote Model-70. All 3 shoot 140 Accubonds between .010-.015 off the lands into easy SUB MOA groups with between 61-63 gr of RL-19.
I swear RL-19 was tailor made just for this cartrige.
Super easy to load for.

Anyhow, I've shot a few Deer, & 2 Black Bears & a couple Elk (my cousin shot) have fallen to that load combo. I absolutely love mine.

Bigngreen smoked an Elk with 165 Matrix bullets past 800, or 850. It's posted here, & on YouTube.
It's a very versatile cartrige, & for me personally, the best Deer cartrige out there that can double as my back up Elk rifle. I can't say enough good things about it.
You've got a winner.
