Re: Tough High BC bullet for .270

Thanks again for all the info. Muzzle season starts Oct. 20 and rifle on Nov. 10. I will be using the 300g SST bullet in the muzzle gun for the first time so will see how they work. Hope to get some longrange shooting in the rifle season. Will post my stories when they happen.

ST_Gunner,

You want a hog killing bullet. Scroll to the bottom page of this link. It shows the results of a hog killing bullet.

We had a young lady, using a 257 Roberts and a 101gr EXP Groove Bullet that dropped her hog. The bullet exited.

Click the link below to see what a 127gr EXP Groove Bullet does to a mule deer and an elk shot from a 7mm RUM at 3800 FPS.

Try the new Barnes triple-shock. The 140 grain has a bc of .497, and shoots great out of my .270 Wby. I tried the Interbonds, very erratic. I have a partial box of them if anyone is interested! Actually, in three different rifles and calibers, the triple-shock has been a winner for me, way better than the regular x-bullet.

We are in the process of introducing a 270EXP bullet. Our tests have shown this 113gr EXP bullet to be very accurate.

This bullet will be available in 2 to 3 weeks.

Hi Harv,

I used H-4831, killed deer at, 350,404,670 yards with that load. It was very nice on ground hogs out to 1200 yds.

Good luck, Vern

Re: Tough High BC bullet for .270

Don't get too hung up on ballistic coefficient, as it is highly overrated for normal and average shooting conditions. If you study the math, drop is very little until you hit the longer range categories when comparing 2 bullets of differing b.c.'s. Good luck!

Re: Tough High BC bullet for .270

Kenny, you do know the name of this website, right? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] People here compensate for drop (that's why most don't mind heavy bullets). Look at wind drift. BC is very important for wind drift even at ranges most here would consider "short range hunting."

Gunpowder, the .270 cal 140 Barnes doesn't have a chance in hell of having a BC of .497. It looks like Barnes has been exaggerating again....
