Re: .270 loads

Here are some 270 notes from my chrono at the range:

M70 270Win, 2x7 scope, 130 gr VLD 57.7 gr Re17 , 22" barrel, shooting off swivel bi-pod on the ground 8.75 pounds as tested with bi pod, scope, and sling
3129 fps, 3228 fps, 3228 fps

55 Re17 150VLD 3.385"
M70 22" barrel, 7X scope, 3023, 2996, 2969, 3003, 3009, 3003, 3009, 3037 fps

I would have bet that I could not do that, after all the deer I shot with that rifle with 130 gr Ballistic Tip 50 gr IMR4895 2875 fps.... out to 510 yards.

But the Re17 loads are no good. They had no pressure sign and the next primers were just as hard to insert, but Re17 changes so much with temperature, that I would have to reduce it way low [not knowing what temp I would be hunting at], and then it would still change trajectory with temperature.

So I would stick with the H4350.
The 270 even with wimpy loads is a real long range killer.
