270 wsm load data?

I recen1:9tly purchased a 270wsm on here and was wondering what you all have had good luck with? I'm thinking of 4831sc with either a 150 or 165gr. Any and all input will be appreciated since it's getting close to deer season and would like to possibly give it a try. It will be a 1:9 24" barrel Browning x-bolt. I hunt WI so my longest shot will be 4-500yds on 150-200lb. deer. I'm kinda leaning toward the 165gr.

A130 gr tsx will take down deer ,elk , moose.
63.1 grains of Reloader 19 , Winchester cases, cci mag primers.
The rifle took a moose once again last nightat 100 yards.
One shoot- one kill!
But you will have to work up this load for your rifle, I would start at
60.grains to start with.

congrats on the elk. I've heard others talk about the reloader19. It sounds like one to consider.

At 4-500yrds you certainly don't need to run the bigger bullets, the 140's hump out there and will touch something at that range! The 1-9 twist would certainly let you shoot the 165 and the 175 Matrix and gives you some top notch BC.
Retumbo with 165's start about 64gr and work up easy, slow powders are the ticket with the bullet over 130gr.

where is the best place to buy those matrix bullets? I guess I'm not real familiar with them?
