.270 Rem 700 to shoot 1000 yds

I know a .270 bullet can travel 1000 yds. I ploan to do so. I just bought a new Lee turret press and a set of pace setter dies. I need to know what grain bullet (make/model) and powder combo (make/model) should I be using. I don't even know the twist of the barrel of this gun. I am new to this. I have read a lot of what I have to do to shoot this far. I now need the proper load to do so.

I know that heavy loads are good to for knock down power, I know light loads go faster. There must be a sweet spot where weight vs chagre make the bullet go the farthest and the flattest at 1k yds.

I would like to hear from people that have shot a
.270 round 1000 yds consistently

I know .308 and 30.06 are a long range round, But I own a .270 .

Thanks in advance for your time. Tom

I shoot the 140 grain Nosler Accubond. 56.4 grains of reloader 19 is my load. Good luck.

I suggest something with a high BC, Bergers or Sierra are cheaper than Accubond if you don't need the premium performance. Make sure your scope can make it to 1000 yards also.

I would try the Berger's .277cal. 150gr. VLD bullets with the ballistic coeficiency of .545. I have some loaded up for the 270wsm. Waiting for better weather to try them out.
