Re: 270 Weatherby Facroty Load

Thanks guys. I may be tempted to try the r25. I worked with r22 for a while without much luck, so maybe going with something a little quicker makes sense.

I'm tempted to try IMR4350 too. But can anyone refresh my memory? Is the 4350 a substantially faster powder than r25?

Thanks,

Ben

    140gr Sierra BTSP, Fed 215 and 71.5gr IMR7828. Reachs 3300fps but best accuracy is around 3200fps. The rifle is a Kleingunther K-15.

    RE 25 has a SLOWER burn rate than does RE 22. IMR 4350 or H4350 is a little too fast for a 270 WBM. RL 22 with 73.5-74 gr with 130 gr Barnes X and TSX nets 3360 and 3400 fps respectively. I played with some IMR 7828ssc with some 150s in the same Mark V WB rifle with no such luck. Groups were in the 1.5-2.5" range. The 130 TSXs shot the best slightly beating out the plain 130 X with groups in the .3s and .4s. If you want to shoot heavier bullets than 130s, a general rule is to slow the burn rate as you increase the bullet weight. Just something to keep in mind. Best of luck!

    Re: 270 Weatherby Factory Load

    Hey, do you guys have any data for re 25 and the 270 Weatherby? I bought some of the powder, but now I can't seem to find any load data listed anywhere. Everything is for r22 or r19.

    Thanks,

    Ben

    They have 130 ABs now, they're new.

    On the duplicating factory 270 Weatherby note. A good friend of mine wanted me to match the 150 grn Wea load in his Mark V. I achieved this w/ 71.5 grns R22 under the Hdy 150Grn SPILFBs (Same as Weatherby Spire Point loads)Weatherby brass and Federal GMM 215s were used. I roll crimped into the cann.

    That load chronoed 3265 at 10-12' and shot less than an inch at 200. It is dynomite on whitetails.

    I achieved the same velocity w/ IMR7828 but accuracy wasn't nearly as good(around MOA).

    Good Luck
