Re: Anyone with real world experience with a plain OL\' 270/300 Ultra?
I haven't used anything heavier than 150gr in my 270/300Rum.
Used 135Mk and 150sst mainly, sticking with the heavier here the past few years.
With 30" barrel I was pushing the 135mk @3750 using 102gr of WC872 and the 150sst @3450 using 95gr 5010. I would suggest staying with a ball powder vs 5010. The 5010 buring very hot has taken its tole on the barrel. The bullets have to be set way out there to reach the rifling now. Oh well! Can't say I wasn't warned about using 5010. But I would be very interested in seeing your results with the 195gr bullet. I think I'll have to try'em before setting the barrel back. See if I can regain some of the lost accuracy by using a bullet with a longer bearing surface. Or maybe that's just wishfull thinking. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
