I have a tikka t3 lite 270 wsm with a 24" barrel that's very light, very accurate, and inexpensive. The trigger is great. I don't have a chrono yet but remington says that the 150 accutips I use get 3160 ft/sec. That's what I plug into JBM's ballistic calculator and the given drops are dead on out to 1000 yards. The bullets, which I think are Hornady SST's, have a BC of .525. At my elevation of 5000ft, they still have 1000 ft/lbs at 1000 yards.
Accurate Powder lists a load with a 150 gr bullet that gives 3136 ft/sec with Magpro. http://www.accuratepowder.com/data/P...%202004%20.pdf
That's what I'm going to try when I get a reloader.
