Re: 270 Win load question

With RL-22 in the Winny don't use magnum primers.

Changing from CCI 250s to CCI 200s shrunk ES and dropped group size from 3/4" into the teens.

I develop loads for 60* temps and leave it there. I seem to hit yotes pretty well in temperatures in the teens. However max range has been just under 500 yards. I would suppose that farther out there would be a difference in drop.

I want to thank everyone for your advice. I have some CCI 200's on hand so I'm going to start there. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again Mike

Re: 270 Win load question

I helped two friends with 270's (140grn accubonds too) and both ended up shooting very well with 58-59 grains of H4831SC. I think one of them is using CCI 200's and the other CCI 250's. Not 100% sure about the primers, so be careful and work up. Both guns had significantly better accuracy as they approached max loads.

Re: 270 Win load question

My vote is for H4831 short stick using about 58 grains with your 140 gr accubond bullet. The .270 is super easy to reload and that load (work up to it) with perhaps some small adjustments in OAL should shoot well as you are pressed for time. Good Luck!

We are all in agreement on H4831SC at 58gr. with the 140 AB. This load shoots well in several rifles. If you have some 4350 try 51-54 gr with the 140.
