These were all fired with my 270 Allen Mag sporter based on a Savage M111 receiver, 30" #6 contour barrel and Factory Savage Sporter Laminate stock. Not exactly a true sporter "weight" rifle at just over 10 lbs but it is extremely portable in the field.
Please keep in mind this is not a store baught rifle, its one of my full custom Xtreme Sporter rifles so that is one reason for the performance. The other is the Wildcat bullets used.
This is the lightest rifle I use in the field currently for long range shooting. My load is the 169.5 gr ULD RBBT loaded to 3265 fps using WC872.
These are actually fireforming loads that made this group!!
First two shots out of the cold barrel to check actual bullet drop against predicted bullet drop, pretty close.
This was a one shot kill at 1114 yards. Within three weeks last spring, the 270 AM scored three one shot kills past 1K on chucks. 1098, 1114 and 1248 yards. All shot off bipod and solid support.
This test group was fired at 930 yards, again, out of a cold barrel to check actual bullet drop against predicted bullet drop, again very close. This was days before taking the 270 AM on its first field test
The result!!! Very happy rifle owner!!!
Now obviously these are the best of the best groups. They are not all like this but the rifle is a legit 1000 yard rifle on game the size of chucks and larger.
With a properly build sporter rifle in the 8 to 10 lb range, loaded with the proper loads and topped with a quality scope and having the practice to use everything together, 700 yard shooting is to be blunt, a chip shot. That is if you know when to and more importantly "Not To" shoot!!
