Re: .270 loads

About those 60 gr4831 loads: Back in O'Conner's day, most 4831 was surplus from WW2. The newer stuff we buy now may be slightly hotter...not much... think fresher? Anyway, 60 grs. is a Max load. I have no problems with 59.5 grs. H4831. This is a very accurate load in my Rem. 700 with 130 br. Accubonds.

Re: .270 loads

Moose glad to hear your input. Have you checked the velocity on your load. I have some exact loads I want to try and I have 60 gr also. I will pay close attention but I don't think I will go any hotter. Have you tried any Hornady Interbonds? I have some of those in 130 ready to try in 59.5 and 60 gr. I'll let everyone know in a couple weeks. I hate paying to shoot at a range when I can go to my property 3 hrs. away and shoot for free.

Re: .270 loads

This is then only load ive put thru a chrono, and shot in a Fclass match once

.270 R-P brass
59grs H4831
CCI BR2 primer
140gr Berger VLD
2971fps -/+ 4fps

Thru a factory R700 SPS 24"

No pressure signs up to 60grs H4831 in my rifle, but 59grs gave me a 3.66" group at 600yds. So i stuck with that.

Tryin to work up a load for some 150gr Bergers, but i gotta get my own Chrono.

I have used the surplus 4831 since I purchased my 270 25 years ago. Used it with 130, 140 & 150's. Had the best accuracy with 130 Sierras. Tried IMR4831 behind some Nosler Partitions in 150 grain last year and got the best group ever out of the same rifle. The Nosler 150s are leaving the barrel at 2950.

Re: .270 loads

Gonewest: in my gun I'm getting 3125 fps with that 59.5 gr. H4831 and 130 gr. Accubonds. My wife's gun (exactly like mine) gets 3175 fps. Go figure....guess that proves not all chambers are the same dimensions.

My supply of the old H4831 went bad around 10 years ago. I had a 8 lb. "paper" container and that may have not been the way to store it. Oh well, I got it pretty cheap and was great while it lasted.

I also had a load for the 270 with 160 gr. Nosler Partitions and 55 grs. of the old H4831 that was quite accurate. Don't shoot that load anymore as I've picked up a 7mm WSM for those 160 gr. loads.

The only bullets I've used have been the Nosler Partitions and the Accubonds in my 270. I am looking at the tipped TSX's now that "unleaded" is creeping up in several hunting areas. My friend loves them in his 270 and says they're very accurate.

Re: .270 loads

I've had excellent results with H4831 and almost any 130gr spitzer with 58.5 to 60 grains. I find no noticeable difference with H4831sc in my loads. The 60 gr loads usually run around 3000-3050 depending on the individual rifle. These loads are safe in my rifles and ymmv.

They also provide very good accuracy, often going 1/2" or less for 3 shots at 100 yds.

Re: .270 loads

I am going to try some R19 and maybe some R22 but so far as you guys have mentioned I have been getting good groups with 130's and H4831 I still haven't shot the 59.5 and 60 gr. loads yet but will real soon. I am ancious to try the 130 gr interbond. They sureare a rel long bullet but thy look real sexy once reloaed with the red tip. HaH
