Re: 270 Win w/130 gr Sierra 52 gr. IMR4350
Out of the 270 Win - 24" douglas bbl:
Have chrono'd 90gr bullets @3700+ w/N204 - accurate & not too hot.
100gr bullets @ 3600 w/4320
130gr bullets @ 3200 w/N205 & 4350 (std deer/elk/moose load)
Rebarreled w/27" lilja:
Nos 130 BT @3330 RL-22/59gr
Hor 140 @3256 RL-22/59gr
All W-W brass. Too hot for REM cases.
Never "dusted" a bullet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Always more than 10 reloads per case. Usually in the 20s.
And, I know who O'Connor was. That's why when the Navy sent me to Idaho for 4 years, within a week I had a local smith put the 270 bbl on a Mauser action that I picked up on the way in from my last station. (Only because the store in Boise greased up the riflings in the surplus 7x57 barrel. Then when cleaned it looked like lava rock down the bore [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])
Really loved the 7x57 for those PA. Whitetails.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
