.270 using Hunter powder

I did a search and after going cross eyed reading thru the results didn't find what I was looking for. I recently picked up a Remmy 700 in .270 for deer and hog hunting. It was a project the guy hasn't been able to get around to and he threw in 4 boxes of 150gr Noslier ballistic tips, some brass, a new walnut stock and bdl bottom metal to get rid of the adl stock that was on it. Went searching for powder over the weekend and all I could get my hands on was Ramshot Hunter. I wanted Reloader 22 but these days it seems your lucky to get anything. Anyways.....anybody have any load data for the 150gr Noslier's using Hunter powder?

Re: .270 using Hunter powder

You should be fine using the Barnes data, the Barnes bullet has a higher starting pressure. You can probally go up one more grain, just work up carefully.

Ramshot isn't that bad of stuff. I'd probably be using more if I hadn't bought kegs of some of the others already. I shoot tac and I've used magnum and big game. True blue works fine in my pistol.
