270 Win w/130 gr Sierra 52 gr. IMR4350

Just thought I would share this load w/you guys. A customer gave it to me today and said it only dropped 1/16" from 100 yds to 500 yds!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] That must be one sweet shootin' rifle to see that 1/16" of inch @ 500 yds. Must put them all in the same hole. I tried to keep a straight face talking to him, but I know I was grinning ear to ear!!!

Who needs an Allen Mag when the standard 270 Win will do this!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Damn, wish I'd known that before spending all those months planning and waiting on the new rifle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I could have just bought a used 270 for a couple hundred and spent another hundred or so on a scope and I would have saved a bundle of money and I'd have ended up with something that shoots "flat" to 500 yards. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Wouldn't have to order those goofy, long, pointy bullets all the way from Canada either.

Maybe I'd better just sell this rainbow shooting 7mm AM and get a real long range 270 super duper factory special. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hope this new found super load doesn't get out to too many people or it could be really rough on Kirby, Shawn and the other smiths.

Nah, I'm a glutton for punishment. I think I'll stick with what I've got and just tough it out at long range. The 270 Win would just take all the fun out of it. Wonder how much it'll drop at 1000 yards??? 1/8" maybe??

Re: 270 Win w/130 gr Sierra 52 gr. IMR4350

Now yer talkin' to one of the world's least known experts on the 270 Win.

That there load the fella is talkin about can't be going any more than somewhere between 2700 and 2800 and it just won't do the 1/16" thing.

But.......Stick 58.5 gr of 4350 in there and and the 130 will be up around 3200. Now upair in that region he'll get his first calibration shot off @ 100 yds then spend the rest of the day figgerin' out how to get that case out of the chamber or the muzzle will look like a well mushroomed TSX.

Bill, you and 4kd Horn must be magnets for these kind of guys. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

He told it was running 2700 fps. He also told me he had it up to 3200 fps but the bullet just "vaporized" @ about 300 yds. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Said he'd used this load to kill everything from coyotes to deer to elk to moose to a big Alaskan brown bear and nothing ever went more that 30 yds!!!! To bad he wasn't 20 yds from that bear!!!!

what he probably meant was that the gun shot so poorly that the lowest bullet hole in the one hundred yard group was only a 1/16th on an inch from ONE of the bullet holes from the 500 yard group!

Re: 270 Win w/130 gr Sierra 52 gr. IMR4350

62 grains of R-22 with a Mag primer like CCI 250 can get a 130 moving. I don't have chrono data on some of my old notes in the reloading books. You only get 3-4 shots out a win 270 case before the primers are loose.

I've never had bullets vaporise out of a gun larger than a 220 Swift and that was shooting some kind of 40 ish grain bullet. Nothing big would hit paper at 100 yards. It was before they started speed rating some varmint type bullets
