Re: 165 gr matrix load for 270 wby mag!!

Going to try some more loads this week end. I have 69.5,70,70.5,71,and 71.5 loads of H1000. Hope to find my max load. and get the speed I want. 3000 or above will do just fine in my rifle. In fact 3000 shoots about the same ballistics as my 150 bergers at 3150.
I have a swarovski Pv 4-16 x 50 with the tds-4 reticle. I have been shooting 71g of h1000 with the 150 bergers. Just not getting the wound channel i want out of the 150's. Got several buddies shooting the 168 bergers in 7mm and they are awesome!!!

One that leaves a nice blood trail. The 150's don't some of the time. The 168 7mm's do every time.

Ok shot the other test loads. Got up to 3000 fps but The groups started opening up after that. Looks like 69 or so is going to be the max for h1000 in my rifle.

Like bigngreen said about 3100 fps out of a 270 WSM w/ the 165 Matrix using 68 gr Retumbo powder. I would think you should be able to up that by a fair amount but be careful
